This ravishing old house in Paris, Ontario (not far from Toronto) has been featured a number of places, but the "Blue and White Home" blogger has a huge array of gorgeous pictures of it.
What I like about it is the serenity, and the ignoring of fads and trends. The owners know what they like! And that includes lovely, refined antiques, but those are vibrantly mixed with select pieces of modern art. I always appreciate that blend, because it saves a place from feeling museum-like or in a time capsule.
In some of the rooms, the original stone walls are exposed, adding even more character:
Stenciled floors are so interesting.
This "breakfast room" for me would be a formal dining room! Love the Hitchcock-type chairs.
And there's even a cozy little spot in the breakfast room to curl up in comfort and enjoy tea...
But the kitchen is the piece de resistance! Tin ceiling, that stove, stone floor, marble counters, shutters...
Here's the actual dining room...
Library. Just the house's collection of all different Oriental rugs is dreamy.
Loft-like master bedroom.
Nice idea to have a fireplace in the bathroom, for those chilly nights and mornings!

What a pleasant and quaint property. My farmhouse lovin' hubs could live here for sure. Very nice.

Just stunning. Really like the texture that the exposed walls brings to the rooms.
The kitchen is dreamy . Would spend so much time there.
I also like the contrast of the Jackson Pollock type painting in the formal looking dining room.

Love everything about it, @oznell except for the cold/stark/white-walled-and-floored master bedroom (unwarmed even by the lovely furnishings) and the modern so-called "art." I envy the owners, though, their success in creating a home that suits their varied tastes.
