Our House: The Bedroom.

View from our bed. 

The shelf.

The hanging garden under the skylight.
The stairs are a little treacherous in trinity homes.
The skylight and the planter for herbs I made out of a shoe organizer. 
Clockwise from top left: Tomato, sunflowers, cucumbers, and another tomato.

I've decided to share some photographs of our house, because I've noticed online there is very little to offer on the subject of Philadelphia's trinity homes. These houses were built between 1790 and 1840, and most of them are in Philadelphia. They are really very unique, and I love the one we live in. Usually they are very small three story houses with each floor being only one room. The kitchen is always in the basement, and the spiral staircases are always tiny and treacherous! (There are also fireplaces in every room - very nice in the winter time.)  It's like living in a hobbit home, really. The photos above are from our bedroom, which is the third floor. I went on a painting spree recently, because I had a few days off from work before Jim and I went on our trip. Our landlord gave us a painting allowance when we moved in and he never specified a colour - so of course we chose a very exciting yellow for the bedroom. After doing all the painting I'm kind of sad we'll be moving within the year to Taiwan.. In the past five years I've moved a total of eight times (yikes.) It gets old quick! Anyway, I'll eventually photograph the whole house and post one room at a time. 


  1. it looks so cozy and very peaceful.

  2. Beautiful house, and I really enjoy how you decorated it. And you're right, Taiwan is going to look very different ;-)

  3. thanks both of you!
    Electra- Are you from/Have you been to Taiwan?? I'm super excited.
