  • “In a daughter’s room, the Italian shell bed came from the owner’s former house in Europe, the mirrored side table is from JF Chen, and the chandelier was found on 1stdibs.”

Out of all the Victorian homes I have seen, this is by far one of my absolute favorites. Its called the Ransom B. Moore house and was built in 1871 in Romeo, Michigan. I always love catching glimpses of it when I’m in Romeo. I would buy this home in a heartbeat if I won the lottery haha 😍💜

I only

dream of your ankles brushed by dark violets,
of honeybees above you

murmuring into a crown. Antique queen,

the night dreams on: here are the pears
I have washed for you, here the heavy-winged doves,

asleep by the hyacinths. Here I am,

having bathed carefully in the syllables
of your name, in the air and the sea of them, the sharp scent

of their sea foam. What is the matter with me?
