When we bought this house I became obsessed with finding period furniture. And I mean obsessed. The hubbs is probably shaking his head in affirmation right now. Not a week went by that I didn't see something new that I..ABSOLUTELY...HAD...TO...HAVE....And then he put me on a budget (which I welcome because I am horrible with money...I mean horrible) and let me tell you, you guys, when you are on a budget you double and triple question every decision and think several times before you purchase an item. For example, I went to the architectural warehouse today and left with nothing because did I really love that pair of candelabras at 50% off? Why, yes, I did...but did they really bring me joy?? It's like walking around with a tiny Marie Kondo in my wallet....Anyway...before I was put in said budget I spotted this chair at the Salvation Army. It's not Victorian by any means, it's just a simple, relatively modern recliner but...BUT...look at the upholstery! Cigars and playing cards! I mentioned before, Mr. Minnich (the original owner) used to own a cigar factory, J.W Minnich and Son...and the library in the house was designed with card playing in mind. The shelves and fireplace have card suits carved in them and, we were told, there was a lot of gambling happening in this room, so how could I NOT purchase it?? This chair was meant to be in this house!! (And at less than $20 for a Lane recliner? Yes, please). So, I have come to the conclusion that, if it's meant to be, the right piece will find you... . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #Furniture #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #thrifty #victorianarchitecture #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse #mariekondo #thriftstorefinds
Dig deep into the history of this GORGEOUS dream house -- click through to the listing!⠀ ⠀ ($1,000,000 / Rydal, PA)⠀ -⠀ From the listing: The house is designed in the country Tudor style (a mixture of brick & stone details) in the shape of a “T”. Through a series of stone & brick pillars, the guest courtyard has a circular driveway at the front entrance. Being that the house was designed for Dr. Cross, there is a separate entrance tucked to the right of the main entry hall from when he used to receive patients at his house. This entry provides access to the office/library & the sitting room (now used as the family room). The powder room for the 1st floor is also accessible from either the office or the entry hall.⠀ ⠀ Immediately inside the entry foyer, there is a small “cloak room” to the left as well as a small “sitting room” prior to entering the powder room mentioned previously. Directly down the hall is the entry to the family room/office and then into the large stair hall. The signature Wilson Eyre stair railings are just beautiful. The hardwood floors throughout are in excellent condition.⠀ ⠀ It is from here that the axis of the design radiates, with the dining & living rooms towards the rear of the house & the first (of many) set of French doors that lead out to the rear terrace.⠀ ⠀ At the end is the Living Room, down a series of 5 steps. This space is just perfect with a vaulted & beamed ceiling, huge casements windows that flood the room with light on 3 sides, built-in bookcases, a stone floor & a lovely central fireplace on the North wall. Another set of French doors lead out to the lower patio & pool beyond.⠀ -⠀ #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #dreamhouse

Ceiling medallion, anyone? While not the most ornate medallion i have ever seen, it is still beautiful in its own cherubic way. I'll admit I have never been a big fan of cherubs, and they happen to be everywhere in the music room. Ceiling? Check. Wallpaper? Check. Wallpaper border? Check. Wall decor? Check. Cherubs...cherubs everywhere...I can't decide whether I should love them or succumb to this cherub filled fate that has been thrust upon me. Maybe I should add more cherubs? I heard you liked cherubs, so I brought you cherubs for your cherubs, so you can cherub while you cherub? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #ceilingdesign #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #ceilingdecor #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #cherubs #medallion #ceilingmedallion #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse

The Hunt Phelan estate in Memphis, circa 1828. For sale now for $2.5 million. Located at the "end" of Beale Street - hard to believe that at one time the area just 5 or so blocks from the river was rural. Civil War armies stayed at the home, as seen in the amazing old photography from Historic Memphis. The other photos come from the current MLS listing. The estate has most recently been used as a wedding and event location. The estate, while beautiful, is not in the best area of town nowadays. . . . . #huntphelan #huntphelanestate #memphis #tennessee #downtown #downtownmemphis #choose901 #ilovememphis #archi_ologie #circaoldhouses #circaoldhomes #oldhousecharm #oldhouselove #oldhomelove #historic #antebellum #southerncharm #southernliving #memphishistory @huntphelan #beale #bealestreet #realestate #memphisrealestate #historichomesforsale #historichomesofamerica #instagramtennessee #huntphelanhome #greekrevival #civilwar #civilwarhistory

I absolutely love exposed brick fireplaces but I'm not sure if I'd have the courage to do it in a home renovation. . . Reposted from @betterhomesandgardens - We're suckers for some beautiful exposed brick! This fireplace and chimney were once buried under outdated wood paneling. But after the wall between the kitchen and dining room came down, the fireplace (and its antique brick glory) became the focal point it was meant to be.✨ This 1901 home went through a TON of amazing renovations taken on by @elizabethburnsdesign and her husband, and all their hard work truly paid off.

Time for some hardware porn! Look at these beauties and tell me you are not drooling! They belong to a closet door...a door that is most definitely in the wrong place, and in the wrong closet 🙄 but it will eventually be made right once again...For some reason someone in the past decided they wanted a new closet. To accomplish that they moved a radiator, blocked a window, altered the entire layout of the room, compromised the structural integrity of the house, and ignored the already functional closet, but what do I know, right? 🤷‍♀️ . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldwindows #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse
Alright...time to settle this once and for all....tell me, beautiful people...what creature do you see?!?! For some reason my brain, which is not under the effects of any poison of any kind, associates this with the Starbucks mermaid 🤷‍♀️ but what do YOU see?! Is it a mermaid? A mythological creature? A bird of sorts? A mutant fish?? Anyway, this...creature...whatever it is, is gracing the side of one of the many radiators throughout the house. Some of them are pretty simple and utilitarian, but some of those radiators have the most beautiful decorations in them...and at least two of them have the mutant fish from outer space. But no, seriously...if you know what this is, I need to know! . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #radiator #art #castironradiator #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse

Visit my website in BIO to learn more about this house. #historichomesofminnesota #oldhouselove #oldhousestyle #iloveoldhouses #tudorrevival #tudorhouse #tudormanor #tudortuesday #blackandwhitephotography #oldphotos #itsforsale #circaoldhouses #redwingmn #houseportrait #chasing_facades

Hello there, my IG friends! It's time for another #52weeksofhome photograph! This week we are looking at "House Portraits", and since I have already shown you pictures of the exterior I wanted to show you something different instead. The first picture is an illustration of what the house would have looked like back in the day when cars were still merely an idea in Henry Ford's head. This illustration is very similar to what the house loosk like today. The second picture is a portrait of the inhabitants of the house. For reference, they are sitting in the stairs where the horse's butt is 😁 Now, here is a dose of reality for you...you see that white, pristine, exterior color? Yeah...about that....that color was wonderful at a time when only horses were on the road. Nowadays and, being on Main St with the constant traffic of cars and 18 wheelers, the house is covered in soot from the exhausts. Because of this we had to make the painful but realistic decision to paint the house. Yes, I love it white. Historically, it has always been white, but I hate to see the white turn gray over and over, it's just impossible to maintain. Hopefully, if all goes as planned, come Spring/Summer she will get a facelift and a much needed fresh coat of paint in a color that will mask soot as much as possible so she can always look her best... . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #PaintedLady #HousePortrait #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #freshpaint #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #italianate #secondempire #exteriordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse
