Searching for Antique Treasures - Cottage Style in the Adirondacks

I recently went on a house call to look at a unique mansion full of Cottage Style Furniture.  This mansion called "Cobblestone" has an abundance of history as well as architectural design. With natural stone and log decor, this mansion featured several stone fireplaces along with 13 spacious rooms of fantastic hardwood floors and magnificent stone archways.  I was amazed as I walked from room to room to find one treasure after another.

I entered a large sleeping porch through a wall of french leaded glass doors. The room was filled with natural light and beautiful vintage wicker in an amazing shade of pink.

Gorgeous wallpaper
I climbed the massive staircase to the second level only to find this AMAZING wall of beautiful wallpaper.

Walking room to room I continued to find bedrooms filled with pretty blue painted dressers....fantastic twin beds with curved footboards and ticking fabric mattresses and various small tables each with their own unique design.

I have my work cut out for me! Visit us again as I bring each of these amazing examples of true Cottage Style Furniture back to it's original beauty.
