Every year, Mt. Airy has a Holiday Tour of Homes and I finally got to go this year. It was really fun! As soon as we started, it began to snow. You can see as the photos progress, how there is more and more snow on the ground. It was such a beautiful day! Here are a few of my favorite pics from the tour today. They are all older historical homes.
The Cooke Home
Adorable little girls room.
The Yarboro Home
A lot of the old homes have fireplaces in the bedrooms.
I love how they painted the stripes on these walls.
The William Alfred Moore House
This one was hard to get a good picture of since it was up on a hill.
A beautiful Library.
I think this sunroom was my all time favorite of all the rooms I saw today.
I would give anything for a room like this!
Office of Faw, Folger & Johnson, PC
(Looks like something out of a story book, doesn't it?)
All of the beautiful wood throughout this house was breathtaking. I think this one had the most charm.
Beautiful old bathroom with all of it's original subway tile and hex flooring.
This house even had it's own phone room.
I've never even seen one of these rooms before.
Globe Tobacco Lofts
These lofts use to be an old tobacco building.
They did a great job turning them into lofts.
(Painting on the brick wall.)
The lofts even have a playground for the children.
This one is actually inside one of the resident's loft. I really love this, even though it's very contemporary.
There was even an atrium in the bathroom.
Hope you enjoyed the tour, I know I had a great time touring all of these beautiful historic homes.
See there are all sorts of little treasures here in Mt. Airy.
