Swiss Avenue Historical Tour 2013

My husband and I went to the Swiss Avenue Historical Tour in Dallas Texas this past weekend.

It is an amazing street with incredibly restored homes with some of the homes over 100 years old.

 
 
 

 
These two staircases are just beautiful.


If you got tired of walking from house to house then you could take a carriage ride.

 
Some of the homes have porches on the second level of the homes and they look out into the trees. Some porches have been closed in but the windows are large and they are more like sun rooms. Other porches have been closed in completely and are everyday living spaces.

  
  
 This porch had been fully enclosed and there is a ladies office in this space. What lady wouldn't love this space! It must be a joy to work in this space everyday!
  
I absolutely loved the way this table was decorated.
 
The swimming pools were lovely and every one's landscaping was so lush.
 

 
You could smell this honeysuckle as you came out the backdoor of this house.
 

There was even an outdoor aquarium.
 
The historical cars were spruced up for the day and ready to roll.


 
 
 

There were a couple of kitchens that were very memorable. In this kitchen the cabinets were a light green color which created a very peaceful room. The counter tops in this kitchen were concrete and I loved them. It is so nice to see unique counter tops.
 
 
 
There are two French doors in this kitchen on the right and they open fully to an outside living area.
 
There were the two French doors are one side and a large window on the other, making for a light filled space, and a large island in the center.
 
Another beautiful kitchen - love the island and the bar stools.
 

After getting a little something to eat.......

And listening to some music......

It was time to find our way on home.
 
Do you ever get an opportunity to go to a Historical Society Home Tour, or a Show House tour? This is something I have always loved doing, and go every chance I get.

  2. I love going on home tours. This one looks like it was a lot of fun! I liked how they set up vintage cars in the driveway and played live music outside. Some of those kitchens really caught my eye too. This is a great time of year to do things like that.
