A Tour of Our American Foursquare House- Second Floor!

I'm back to share a little more of our century-old home with you! This time, we're headed upstairs. In true foursquare-style, the bedrooms are all upstairs in the four corners of the house. Hence the name foursquare.

The foyer landing upstairs is just a big open square, but it's the perfect place to do a little staging:

Master Bedroom
Our bedroom is light and bright. We went with a traditional iron bed and clean colors to make it a restful environment. I don't like "stuff" everywhere in my bedroom- it just makes it feel cluttered and chaotic, so we try to keep it as minimal as possible!

Vesper's Room
You'd be able to tell immediately which room belongs to our princess-loving four year-old. Yeah, it's the BRIGHT pink one. She loves it, though! I wanted something that didn't feel too baby-ish or themed, so we went with something she could grown with and switch up easily.

Grey's Room
You might've seen Grey's room in this previous post, but here it is again. It's a really sweet little space for our guy. He is rough and tumble and likes lots of room to run in circles or spread out his millions of trucks. Ya know. Boy stuff. And in case you're wondering, that patch of green with roses in it is the original hand-painted wallpaper. It's been left uncovered through the generations, so we did the same when we went to repaint the space! Cool, right?

Dressing Room
This room is affectionately called my "dressing room," but let's be real: it's a catch-all. It's got my closet in it, but the room itself seems to fill up and empty out monthly with odds and ends- things to sell, furniture to rearrange, toys that have been taken away from kids, etc. I also use it as a photo studio occasionally, so it's no wonder it never stays clean. But you're in luck, I photographed it on a day when it had just been organized!

Second Floor Bathroom
This bathroom goes down as the coolest bathroom in history. I don't know if that's a thing. I bet only old house nerds like myself care about things like original tilework and claw foot tubs, but trust me when I tell you- it's cool.

Well friends, that's the whole shebang. Our favorite place to be together as a family... I hope that when we sell it next year a family finds it that has loved it as much as we do!


  1. That yellow bathroom with blue tile!!! 😍😍😍 I am in love with it!!

  2. An increasingly current and less expensive methodology anyway is to get rid of waxing totally and rather utilize an electric floor polisher. Electric floor polishers won't just spare you time and cash however will leave your floor taking a gander getting it done. flooring contractor in grants pass oregon
