For the next few weeks I will be sharing what we did during our vacation. I love New York! We saw so much of the city. But lets move on to where we stayed.....
My husband has a friend whom he met in the military. He and his wife live in Wyckoff, New Jersey. They have a beautiful home. It was built in the 1970's and Marc has been doing a great job updating it. Below are photos of the home. I loved this home so much and my family and I are so fortunate to have friends who are willing to share their home with us.
The outside of the home
My friend's Suburban. I felt like a celebrity being picked up and dropped of
at every location and look at this huge driveway!
A photo of the backyard
Some of the front yard. They had a lot of yard!
The fantastic backyard. My daughter loved the pool!
All this space was great for entertaining.
We made a few meals with this grill. It was great!
This was a Japanese maple tree.
Marc said that it was planted there by the original owners.
It was a Korean family and the tree has been there for about 40 years!
This was the living room. Sorry the photo was dark but it had great wood furniture & orchids!
They had beautiful vintage chandeliers all over the home.
This was the downstairs bathroom.
The hallway and stairs with the original wood floors!
This was the hallway upstairs. I just adored this chandelier!
This was the gorgeous dinning room. Don't you just love the chandelier? Ana also had
Marc's family's china dishes in the cabinet and she is a collector of Swarovski crystal.
The chandelier up close. I purchased these lilies in the Floral District.
The playroom. I love the puppet show that they had! Just fun!
This was my view every morning from the sun room.
I loved having breakfast out here every morning and reading.
The sun room. I loved the paint colors and the detail on the walls.
I loved this painting in the sun room.
This was where I was every morning enjoying the sun room.
Thanks for reading!!!
