Ca. 1800 Federal: style advice
Hi folks, I'm beginning renovation on a ca. 1790-1801 brick house in the Hudson Valley. (Just beginning research to get a tighter dating.) It's good-sized but simple, e.g. just a fan light and flat fluted columns at the main door, no side lights etc. And while some interior detail survives, a lot is gone, so I'll have to replace. For instance, most old doors long gone, and the fireplace surrounds replaced with garish brick. (Luckily I've got a great contractor who renovated another house for me a few years back.)
Here's the thing. It's easy to find images and drawings for quite fancy urban federal houses. But I'm having trouble finding examples of simpler federal interior detailing to imitate.
Any thoughts about books or sites that might help?
When I can figure out how to post images here I'll put some up.
Thanks, Chris (Wheelervirgil)
