My husband painted the parlor. The walls are now pumpkin patch. That’s Benjamin Moore’s terracotta, I guess. Here are a few pictures taken at night. I’ll take some during the daytime and post them later.
This is the bay window that juts out at an odd angle. Just another example of Queen Anne Victorians’ asymmetry. I don’t think there’s any symmetry to the parlor at all! There’s my great-grandfather on the right. (He’s in the picture!) His doctor in Ireland told him to move to America because he had asthma. He moved to Pittsburgh around 1921 and worked in the steel mills. He never had any more trouble with asthma!
