Pics of Craftsman and other styles from 1900's
There are many folks here that are looking to re-create some early Craftsman or other turn of the century (1900) decor.
I stumbled across the Journal of San Diego History website. It is full of pictures of interiors and exteriors of all types of homes at the turn of the century. It has some great comments on what was used in the rooms.
Like this one:
An interior of a Bungalow. Shows that some homes in the early 1900's did have white trim. Even small homes had baby grand pianos! There is stenciling near the ceiling. The half walls separated spaces. Trimwork that went around the room at the top of the door (picture rail). Pictures were hung from wires from that picture rail.
Or this picture:
With the redwood wainscoting, the sawed wood scrollwork used in the pass throughs (rotozip saw would make these simple to do today), the built-ins with lights above, the use of folding screens to separate spaces and the stencil work is actually burned into the wood. In other pictures you see how prevalent curtains are used in the large pass throughs between rooms. Studying the pictures you can see the style of lights, drapes, funiture rugs, etc.
