Let's talk door knobs and what's considered "original". So, throughout the house I have different kinds of door knobs, all of them wonderful in their own way. Most of them, however, are the wooden door knobs that you see in the bottom, middle picture. They present a dilemma (who ever thought that door knobs would be problematic...) which is to whether replace them with more ornate, period appropriate ones like in the rest of the house, or do we leave them alone, working under the assumption that they are original to the house? And when we are talking about original....what is considered original? Where do you draw the line? Does original mean whatever came with the house? What was installed by the first owner? What was installed when it was first built? What do you think? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldwindows #oldknobs #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, preparation is always the talk of the town. Tablescapes, exquisite cuisine options and their pairings are usually precisely contemplated. This butler’s pantry had a similar thought process as it was designed and executed with the utmost consideration. Ironically, it is a space that assists in the Thanksgiving preparation process as well. What is your favorite space to celebrate the holidays?

Good people of Instagram...I need your opinions. So, for the last 10 years we have had the same 32" TV, which still works beautifully. It served us well in our little rancher, but it was dwarfed in this big living room, so it was time for an upgrade. Queue in this monstrosity...I love our new TV, I adore it...but it is the most un-victorian thing I have ever seen. Now let's be realistic here...Yes, we want this house to be as period accurate as possible, but the reality is...we still have to live here and, like it or not, the TV has to stay. There's no other wall to put it in so now the question is...how to blend it in? The credenza you see there is just temporary, it needs to be refinished and moved to another room, so that will be gone, and we will be buying a more period appropriate piece of furniture for the TV components...but around the TV, what should I put there? Something above the TV? Something on the sides? What do you think? At least we were able to hide the cables! 😁 . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldFurniture #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
The massive Federal Style Mansion in Canandaigua, NY-The Granger Homestead built circa 1816. Gideon Granger, initially from Connecticut, was the postmaster General for the United States under President Thomas Jefferson and his intent after resigning that position was to build a homestead “unrivaled in the nation”. Gideon lived only 6 years in the 13,000 ft/2 Mansion, however Granger’s descendants lived in the property nearing the mid 19th century. 🛷 🎄 🎁 🎅🏻 🦃 ❄️ ⛄️ It is now a Musuem and has a vast collection of period sleighs and carriages as it was intended to be by the Family. #historicrochesternytravels #houseportrait #archi_ologie #circaoldhouses #federalstyle #architecture #historic #historicarchitecture #upstateny #holidays #christmas #sleigh #carriage #carriagehouse #dentilmolding #columns #balustrades #historicrochesterny #thanksgiving #beauty #fingerlakes #oldhouse #fortheloveofoldhouses #oldhouselove #america #oldhousecharm
The great room of Addison Mizner’s “Warburton Hall” (c.1911) as it survives within “Hillwood,” the subsequent Tudor manse of cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and financier E.F. Hutton that enveloped the original home. Post didn’t seem mesmerized by Mizner’s work, both on account of this and commissioning the less-celebrated Marion Sims Wyeth to design her home in Palm Beach—a little place called Mar-a-Lago. Shout out to @kass_scheur for the tour.

You guys...you guys...you guuuuys!!! Take a look at this! Ok...quick back story...I signed for an account with Newspapers.com and started doing some research, and I came across this article...Published February 14th, 1908 in the York Daily newspaper, the title reads: "Dallastown Man Entertains Friends"...Look..at..this...article!!! You all remember Chauncey, right? He was about to marry his father's housekeeper but died two weeks before the wedding? The more I find out about Chauncey, the more I discover his character. He clearly was a socialite, a man who liked to entertain, and I have learned that he had a few flings before Idabelle, all women of high social status, which makes me wonder why he chose a housekeeper to settle down? Nothing wrong with that, but he could have had any woman he wanted...why choose her? What was it about Idabelle that tamed Chauncey? But anyway...isn't this the absolutely most victorian thing you ever read? (I know it's past victorian time, but if you have ever watched a period drama you will know exactly what I mean) . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #oldnews #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldnewspapers #oldhistory #socialite #posh #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

It has already been two weeks, but moving the clocks back is still throwing me for a loop. With darkness setting in earlier throughout the day, one of the things I look forward to most are bath nights. Do you have a favorite reverse daylight savings evening activity?
I know this is not house related but...Who needs twinkling lights when you have freezing rain? The trees in the house are looking lovely. I'm sure they do not appreciate being covered in ice, but they surely do look pretty...It makes me wonder, how did they predict storms like this back in the days when they didn't have radars and satellites to rely on? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #winterishere #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #itssnowing #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #freezing #rain #snow #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

This is the John R. Barnes house built in 1869 in Kaysville, Utah. It is such a stunning house! And so well taken care of. It was first built as a modest adobe structure, then updated to a folk vernacular plan, and lastly expanded with a Victorian style addition. John R. Barnes born in England in 1833, was the son of a blacksmith. He and his family came to Utah in the 1850’s where, with little formal education, he worked hard and became a prominent citizen of Kaysville, opening Barnes Bank in 1891. A bank which is still in operation today. The original bank building is a short walk from the house. He had a lasting influence on the city of Kaysville, and I think it fitting that his home is still standing, leaving a lasting impression on all who admire it. #houses #housesofinstagram #oldhouse #oldhouselove #kaysvilleutah #historickaysville #historicutah #architecture #archi_ologie #housestalker #historichouse #historichouses #utah #historichomes #curbappeal #circaoldhouses #victorianstyle #victorian #victorianhouse
Here is another old timey picture for you! This is J. W. Minnich. He is the one for which the house is named after. I did a lotnof research on this house and, apparently, there was another property here, but when he bought it he did extensive renovations to make the house what it is today. He was a business man (and a very good one apparently as he was one of the richest man in town), and he owned a cigar factory. Apparently, cigar manufacturing was all the rage in Dallastown at the time. He was born 1860, and died in 1940 (or was it 1941?). And according to a newspaper clipping that I found, he once lost his umbrella and it was a very big deal because the whole ordeal was published in the newspaper. Anyway...can I just draw your attention to the cane?? You guys, he has a cane, just for show, like what you see in movies!!! Isn't he dapper? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldPictures #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldphotographs #dapper #handsome #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

1836 was a good year for old Kentucky houses!⠀ ⠀ ($269,500 / Frankfort, KY)⠀ -⠀ From the listing: Situated on an acre lot outside Frankfort, Kentucky’s capital city, the five-bay, two-story, Federal-style, Antebellum common-bond brick structure, with inset chimneys on either end of the house, sets atop a stone foundation. Original interior woodwork—door and window frames, molding, and trim—dates to the home’s construction. During the 1870s a Victorian era front portico, centered across three bays of the house, was added along with a new entryway staircase and mantles. The unique I-style floor plan, with “L” off the back, showcases a “two over two” room layout with a central staircase linking the first and second floors. Solid wood floors are featured throughout the structure. Ten-foot and twelve-foot ceilings give a human scale to the rooms in the historic portion of the house. Solid plaster and lathe walls feature area plasterers’ craftmanship.⠀ ⠀ In the late 1960s, a 19th-century barn was added to the “L” portion of the floor plan to create a distinctive country kitchen with interior barn wood siding, fireplace, wood burning stove, and hand-hewn rafters supporting a loft and attic.⠀ ⠀ Exemplary stewardship has protected the historic character of the John Jenkins home while adding 21st century amenities. Recent updates in 2017 include metal roof/gutters on home/garage and insulated siding on back of home. Bathrooms were renovated in 2010. The entire structure was tuck-pointed in 2000. Solid hardwood floors run throughout and fireplaces are found in almost every room. All that is left is your personal touch to make this house your home.⠀ ⠀ There is a fascinating history associated with the property which is well documented. Few if any comparable homes exist in the area that feature the same level of 19th-century craftsmanship and quality.⠀ -⠀ #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #dreamhouse

Funny story...we are doing research on this house's history and we were in the basement trying to figure out what was the original footprint of the house. I got my phone flashlight out and was telling my husband, "you gotta keep your eyes open, you never know what you are going to find"...and then, outnof the corner of my eye I saw these...neither one of us had registered them before as they look like ordinary pieces of wood...but I sent him under the cobwebs and when he flipped them over...ta-da! Look at these doors! They are definitely cabinet doors, based on size...but I don't have any cabinets anywhere missing their doors...or at least I haven't found it yet...so now the question is, what to do with them?! . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

A simple country house built circa 1870 in the Swedish colony "Mattsons Settlement" that was founded in 1853 in rural Minnesota.

I tried to come up with a neat story for this...I got nothing. Zilch. Nada. Here's what we know: the previous owner liked the sconces on each side of the mantel, but she did not want to see the switch to turn them on/off because...reasons? So she asked her husband to hide it inside the fireplace. Yes, you can actually hide it. See that black border? It has a bit of a lip on the inside so that you can actually rest the switch on it. Otherwise it looks like what you see in the picture....So now, every time I want to turn my beautiful sconces on, I have to jump inside the fireplace like I am going to Narnia, find the switch and turn it on (provided that the on/off switch for the switch itself hasn't been turned off, because then I have to turn that on before I can turn the actual lights on...why?!?!?!) I cannot wait for my lovely husband (hi, hun! 👋) to fix this for me because I cannot live with this insanity...
Reclaimed barn wood, exposed beams and antique fixtures formulate this space to be truly stunning. The tranquil view and refined pool table allow a laid back atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all. What is your favorite way to spend time with others?
Ignore the mess in the background...look at this! Surprise! We found this gorgeousness tucked away in a box in the carriage house. Now the question is...where do we put it? Which room do you think it would look good in? Bedroom? Dressing room? Nursery? Son's room? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #vintagelamps #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldlamps #oldchandelier #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
