The Craftsman

5 years ago, if you would have told me I'd be living ( and loving ) in a 100 year old craftsman, I would have prescribed you crazy pills. ( I had very contemporary taste, wanted everything brand new etc. ) But now, I cannot imagine living anywhere else, right now in my life. Here's some fun inspiration pics I found all over the net. From the builtins, to schoolhouse lights, infused modern with original trim, and wood floors. I love.

  4. LOVE Craftsman homes. Unfortunately, I'm in suburbia land so I don't have that luxury. One of these day...

  5. ~sigh~ these are beautiful. too bad I live in a newer community where every house is nearly the same. They just don't have the character and quality of older homes. Can't wait to move someday. Trying to be content for now!

  6. I'm so curious where you live. We are in Pierce county in an 80 year old home near the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. :) I love the character of older homes!

  8. I <3 this post! There aren't any craftsman style homes in the area we live but we're planning on adding craftsman touches to our 70's ranch. Things like trim, doors, light fixtures, and exterior pillars.
