Start your week off right: Elegant interiors with historic drama

I grew up in an early nineteenth century telescope house on the eastern shore of Maryland, so I LOVE homes with old bones and details that only existed when we had time for details.  The interiors below evoke the same nostalgia for me.  Enjoy!
That ceiling with those herringbone floors and green walls?!

Definitely Mediterranean.  The doors of Spain are works of art. 
The floors and wainscoting are a bit dark for me.  But I love the wide doorways and the view into all of the rooms right down to the ornate fireplace surround.

Knotty hardwood floors, exposed beams, a chair that also serves as an objet d’art.

THIS really reminds me of the house I grew up in.  Colonial style furnishings, and chandelier lined hallways with rooms lined up one after the other.
The patina of the walls and the old hardwood floors are dreamy.
