A house in Esquimalt, British Columbia, incorporates flair from Hollywood's heyday to make it one of the most attractive abodes in the area. The Vancouver Times Colonist reports that the owners, Larry Richardson and Albert Beekma, have spent a lot of time and effort in maintaining the 65-year-old home.

Despite the fact that Richardson and Beekma were immediately drawn to the house when they purchased it in 1985, it required a lot of exterior renovation, including the roof and the windows.

"This is an interesting house," Richardson told the news source. "It becomes spectacular when it is furnished in a manner in keeping with its period."

According to the news outlet, when it came to the windows, Richardson was at in impasse. Their large size prevented him from using a lot of options, but he finally settled on installing wood panels to maintain its period feel. For homeowners looking to make use of wood in their own house, wood blinds can be an great choice.

Many interior design experts recommend hanging wood blinds because they provide a timeless warmth to any room and can easily be adjusted to let any amount of light inside.
