This vintage wallpaper is so charming, especially for an inn. It would go well with antique furniture and hardwood floors.

In this episode, we get a better look into Luke's apartment. Though it is a bachelor pad, it still has that country, rustic feel from the days when it used to be his dad's office.
For example, this card catalog, a bigger model of the one downstairs in the diner, would totally be back in style these days.
I also love Luke's ingenuity in using objects for other purposes than they were intended for. Here, he uses an old safe as a side table.

Antique stove. Very "I Love Lucy"
In this episode we get a first glimpse of Sookie's house, which I am a big fan of. We'll see more of her excellent color choices in future episodes, but here I want to focus on these doors leading from the living room to the kitchen. Swinging doors with glass panes give it a restaurant kitchen feel.
I love multiple aspects of Luke's Diner. In this shot, you can see a lot of his antiques, including a card catalog (very popular right now, Luke was before his time) and some old milk jugs. Search your local antique shops for similar finds!

I love this dollhouse and the fact that it is never actually used as a plaything anymore, but for decoration. Here it is in a bedroom, where it works great with the decor, but later Lorelei puts it in her living room, where it works just as well. A great way to display a meaningful piece of childhood, although personally I would put it in a girl's bedroom.
This white wrought-iron shelf is perfect for storing plants on the porch and that is exactly how I would use it.
