  • “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.”

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?

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 😍💜

  • “In the living room of designer Ernest de la Torre and Kris Haberman’s home in Snedens Landing, New York, the custome sofa is upholstered in a Toyine Sellers fabric, the 19th-century Belgian cabinet was found at an auction in London, the bronze pendant light is by Hervé Van der Straeten, and the Georgian fireplace is attributed to Robert Adam; the walls are coated in waxed plaster, the flooring is Indian sandstone, the silk rug is by Fort Street Studio, and the painting over the mantel is by Ross Bleckner.”

So I see people assuming Stanley took the mask and the fez with him when he ran away. But what if it was Stanford? 

Like I could understand his dad would give him the fez as some kind of gift but what if he also took Stanley’s mask to remember him by, because deep down, he really does miss his brobro..
