River Road, Toledo, Ohio

On this sunny summer day I'll bring you daydreams of vacationing at a Shingle style 1925 house on a river.

River Road is in Toledo, Ohio on the Maumee River, with a view of Horseshoe Island. The porch overlooking the river is so picturesque, it reminds me of a movie set:

Specifically, the set for the movie Dan in Real Life

It was filmed at a rental house called Riven Rock in Jamestown, Rhode Island.  (Riven Rock--good fit for our River Road house, huh?) Be sure to check out Julia's post linked above for neat details about the movie and the house.

Of course a house like this would have a large living room, ready for games or just curling up with a good book.

This room needs multiple seating and games areas, like this:

...but with a more traditional feel, like this:

...and a little bit of a whimsical, gathered over time feel, like this:

The kitchen already has a gathered over time feel, but it needs a little more cute factor:

How about a vintage style faucet, floor, and fat little drawer knobs?

Or this, if you felt that maybe there are too many upper cabinets?

Speaking of upper cabinets, the laundry room's got you covered:

Wouldn't it look sweet with a vintage-looking wallpaper and floor?

As for the shipshape master bedroom:

I like the idea of adding some age with a spool bed and layered rugs:

Finally, up to the third floor and another bedroom:

A bedroom that definitely needs that gathered over time feel, like this one:

Of course, I can't just finish and leave you inside the house, pretty as it is, when the whole point of the house is this:

Hope you have a relaxing week, friends!
