Early American Homes
This top to bottom remodel of a period 4 square home in Alexandria VA features an American Craftsman kitchen, built within the home’s new addition. The intent of this project was to marry the new kitchen to the home’s existing original 1910 architectural details. This craftsman kitchen mixes vintage and modern finishes, while encouraging original esthetics, simplicity of form, and the use of natural materials – all hallmarks of this early 1900’s design reform movement.

Folk Victorian refers to a style of American home that is relatively plain in its construction but embellished with decorative trim. Folk Victorians were built from plan books, provided by architectural companies and in circulation from the mid 1800s into the early 1900s. The books contained from a half dozen plans up to a hundred or more, with layouts drawn to scale and usually showing front and side elevations, but without the details of modern blueprints.

I love this Hutch Makeover I saw in Better Homes and Gardens. It's so easy too, for those who still have an early american looking hutch but don't know what to do with it, paint it and wallpaper the inside to add that extra WOW! You can even take the doors off and make it a TV cabinet or take all the glass out and make it a bookcase/place to display your treasures!

"In Feng Shui, a red front door means “welcome.” Interestingly, in early American tradition, it meant the very same thing. In fact, if a home had a red front door, tired travelers who might be traveling by horse and buggy would know the home was a place where they would be welcomed to stop and spend the night or rest."
A Colonial Christmas In re-creating early American holiday tradition, consider decorating with little gifts, paper chains, cookies for children, and dried quince slices. Candles add a special, warm glow, but to ensure safety at home, opt for faux candles that are lit with bulbs.
