Not Baltimore But Washington, DC

The Baltimore Ikea has a wonderful photo of Baltimore.

It is very attractive and my friend almost bought it to hang in the Cottage.  Ultimately it seemed a little busy which is not a great representation of the city.

The Washington, DC Ikea photo is mostly deep blue.

Also on display was a photo of Washington DC in a 55″ by 39-1/2″ format.

The artwork is on the floating cottage wall.

This picture is actually the one selected for the Cottage’s floating wall. Even though the pervasive color is midnight blue the Capitol dome glows an aqua shade that coordinates well with the “Siamese Eyes” wall color.

The bed in the Cottage has been made up with an Ikea duvet.

At $50 this framed photo seems a bargain.

Are you an ocean or a mountain person?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Yes, I think that was a bargain. It looks good on the wall, too. I’m an ocean person who is living in the foothills of the southern Appalachians and loving it, though I miss the close proximity to the ocean that I had when I lived in Portland, Oregon.

    1. Not seeing the ocean regularly makes it even more special. I like knowing I can get all the way to the coast in a little more than 2 hours. Of course Baltimore has a beautiful harbor 10 minutes from our house. Jo

  2. Love the photo! I’m an ocean person. Eric and I were just talking about that–he wants his ashes scattered in the mountains, I want mine at the beach. I said “We’ll be so far apart!” (We were coming back from a memorial service.) 🙂
