The Muchnic Gallery in Atchison, Kansas, attracts a number of visitors, as both art enthusiasts and those who have an eye for interior design frequently come to take in what the stately building has to offer. The Lawrence Journal-World and News reports that, while the town is home to many similarly striking homes, this 1885 abode is among the most impressive.

According to the news source, one of the most noticeable features of the home is the abundance of wood throughout the interior. Oak, walnut and mahogany all are present throughout the building. The house, which was purchased by the Muchnic family in 1922, also includes stain glass windows on the second floor. With nobody currently occupying the home, the bedrooms on the second floor house art exhibits.

“The Muchnic Gallery has a lot to offer. We invite people to come to see the art, and seeing the home is a special bonus,” executive director Gloria Davis told the news provider.

Homeowners who want to capture a similar austere atmosphere may want to consider installing interior shutters. Industry analysts recommend interior shutters, as they can easily control the amount of privacy while adding a natural aesthetic.
