I've been lurking on this forum for the past month ever since I became interested in a house built in 1919 in the Federal style, which I am now in the process of buying.
I find it odd that there is no crown molding. It is a modest house, and maybe that accounts for this? Would it be inappropriate for me to install crown molding?
Can you recommend a good website or book on the Federal style? I'm particularly interested in appropriate light fixtures. What is in there now reminds me of fussy Victorian era style lighting, though I am no expert on either style.
