Hopeton Road, Wilmington, Delaware

I found a beautiful home for us to tour today in Wilmington, Delaware.  It was built in 1927, and has managed to retain its historical feel although decorated in a fun, contemporary way. 

How do you know when a house listing is special?  When it features the house's matching birdhouse. 

Come on in!

As luck would have it, the listing included some older photos of the house.  See what you think of the decorating updates.  Here's an older, "before" photo of the living room:

Here is that same living room today:

Here is the family room before and after:

Finally, here is a bedroom before and after:

Quite a difference, huh?  Very nice before, but pretty stunning after, I think.   I don't have before photos of the following rooms, so just sit back and enjoy them on their own.

Wonderful dining room.  I like how it continues the tangerine color from the other rooms.

My guess is that the homeowner is a photographer/artist.  What a creative workspace!

Lovely Moroccan feeling lounge for the grownups, and wonderful "Imagination Station" for the younger set.

Check out this nautical nursery:

That crib is awesome, isn't it?  What a fun family heirloom that would make!

The porch is just as interesting as the house's interior:

What great attention to detail inside and outside this house.  Definitely someplace special, and such a treat to find the listing.  Thanks for touring it with me!

Update- I was curious about who decorated this beautiful home, and found that it was Delaware's 2013 Oxford Decorator Showhouse.  Click here for the history of the home, and a list of the Showhouse designers.
