or, How the Other Half Lives
"Asia House", a beach house in Corolla, N.C. (the Outer Banks) is now called something else, but never mind; it is still by far my favorite house of all-time, and Demetrios agrees. We visited it numerous times with my daughter, Erin, and her husband, Jeff, and went camera-crazy.
You can make the pictures larger by clicking on them, and doing so is the only way to get any proper appreciation of what you're looking at.
I have dozens of these pictures, and (mostly for my own pleasure, but I hope perhaps for yours, too), I'm going to share many of them in this and succeeding posts. This house, which was to be sold as is, is crammed full of decorating ideas! Not everything is something I would have chosen - in fact, most of it isn't! - but I'm so glad someone else did.
