American Craftsman Style

American craftsman style is an architectural design that came about in the late 19th century and remained very popular until the 1930's. Making a strong comeback and seeing a definite spike of interest, many homes built in this style are now being renovated to bring back this highly desirable architectural design. These bungalows are known for their hand-crafted stone and woodwork, as well as its use of mixed materials to contribute to the overall effect of this architectural style.
Interested in adding some of these accents to your home or need some accessories to add to the wonderful craftsman home you are decorating? Take a look in your local vintage stores, where you would be surprised at the amazing treasures you can find there. Whether it is a fireplace screen with ornate scrolling detail or a bronzed umbrella stand to add some sparkle to your foyer, it is that attention to detail that reflects the craftsman style. Find some vintage charm, whether old or new, and enjoy giving your home a look that has passed the test of time.
