Hopping in late on the #52weeksofhomeweek1 challenge! We decided to start a page separate from our main account @henriandgeorge that would highlight our #italianate restoration! Week one challenge is “something you’d like to teach or learn”. This is a two-parter. I really want to learn how to repair cracked plaster ceilings!! And I also wanted to show these beautiful ceiling medallions. When we first saw them; there were no fixtures attached to them in sone of the rooms. However with gentle prodding and poking, we were able to cut through the plaster and pop through the electric. Chandelier installation to follow, which has been a HUGE challenge as there was no simple way to secure the fixtures. We had to go through the floors above. What a mess!!
This could be yours! It’s where the first preservation movement started in America. A meeting one evening among strong minded Charleston women and men. She has some plaques on her. Call Lois! @loislaneproperties lol it’s so good! 🎩 #Italianate as hell but a deep lot! #dogwalk
🌿It’s time for another #52weeksofhome post! This week is all about HARDWARE! Our simple farmhouse doesn’t have the elaborate pieces like other homes of its era, but we see the beauty in their simplicity. They were put in for function & durability. 128 years later, we are thankful that all the hardware on the doors & cabinets are original to the house, including a row of hooks in the upstairs hall that we will share once we finish the renovations of the stairway attached to it. This week’s challenge highlights some of the beauty that is hidden in historic homes & reminds us that the restoration process is so worth it.🌿

William Fordney House (1845), Snake Alley District in Burlington, IA. Gorgeous Italianate style - I want to see the view from that cupola! #burlingtoniowa #snakealley #iowaarchitecture #thisplacematters #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #historicpreservation #italianate #brick #architecture #archi_ologie
The snow is gone now and it’s bitterly cold. Here’s a damn fine winter scene. The 1900 block of New Hampshire Ave. NW at the edge of Dupont Circle. These row houses were built in 1876. #igdc #dctography #morethanmonuments #onlyindc #theotherdc #washingtondc #dupontcircle #neighborhood #cityscape #citygrammers #allstreetshots #beststreets #dcstreets #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #houses_ofthe_world #dcrowhouses #rowhouses #italianate #architecture #snow #winter #dogwalking #morningwalk #latergram
Originally built in 1883 in the #italianate #architecturestyle and designed by the Winona Architectural firm of C.G. Maybury & Son the Houston County Courthouse in Caledonia, #minnesota is third courthouse in the county's history and replaced an 1868 design and was built at a cost of $60,000. Unfortunately the building of the courthouse made taxes double in the country. The building was added to the #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces in 1983. #archidaily #architexture #archi_ologie #rsa_architecture #architecture_greatshots #architecturelover #architecture #architecturelovers #architectureporn #architecturephoto #archilovers #architecturephotographylovers #jj_architecture #tv_architectural #tv_architecture #ic_architecture #building_shotz #historicarchitecture #historicbuilding #architecturaldetails #architecturaldesign #architecturalphotography #architecturephotography

The 1880 Morris Marks House was saved from demolition last year thanks to the heroic efforts of some local preservation-minded developers who were able to cut it in two, move it across town (and a college campus), and deposit it on a little triangle of land the city owned that hasn't been used since it served as a reservoir many moons ago. #uohistoricpreservation #oregonheritage #thisplacematters #oldhouse #oldhouselove #pdxhistory #italianate #housemove
Did anybody else leave a little Christmas out? These trophies and greens are still going strong, as winter decor, and I’m not mad about it. With snow on the ground, I like to see a little pine. What Christmas items did you leave out, if any?

Reverend George Park Fisher House. 1865. Back to the 19th century! We'll tour New Haven's Hillhouse Avenue this week, then segue into the work of architect Henry Austin next week. James Hillhouse oversaw the platting in 1792 of what became Hillhouse Avenue. The Family Hillhouse was arguably one of the Elm City's most illustrious families, and the land was part of the family estate. Hillhouse, the paterfamilias, believed this was a natural location for the city's upper-class enclave. Almost every structure dates to the nineteenth century. The architects and builders who built them took care to adhere to the scale, bulk, and siting standards that prevailed on the street. Most of the homes are Italianate., but the street also has Greek Revival, Roman, Queen Anne, and Second Empire homes. Yale owns most if not all of the houses today. #newhaven #nhv #yale #italianate #stucco #lintels #gable #italianvilla #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianarchitecture #architecture #historichouse #historichome #historicdistrict #historic #preservation #historicpreservation
2018/12/24 #八王子 #東京富士美術館 常設展示 「西洋絵画 ルネサンスから20世紀まで」 ピーテル・バウツとアドリアーン・フランスゾーン・ボウデヴェインス合作。 「イタリア風の風景」 制作年不詳。 #バウツ#ボウデヴェインス#ブリュッセル 生まれの#フランドル 画家。 ふたりともパリに住んで絵を描いていた時期があり、そのときに仲良くなったのか、こうした合作を多く手掛けたという。 ボウデヴェインスは元々イタリアの古代ローマ時代のような理想化された風景画を描くのが得意で、人物部分だけ他の画家に描いてもらうことがよくあった模様。 なんかすごくクロード・ロランっぽい。 2018/12/24 Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, Hachiōji, Tokyo. Permanent Exhibition. "Western Paintings From the Renaissance to the 20th Century" Pieter Bout and Adriaen Fransz. Boudewijns. "Figures in an Italianate Landscape" Date unknown. Both Bout and Boudewijns were Flemish painters born in Brussels. There was a time when both of them lived in Paris to paint, and it seems that they worked on such collaborations as they became friends at that time. Boudewijns was good at depicting an idealized landscape painting like Italian ancient Roman era, and he often let other artists depict only the figure part. Somehow, I felt like Claude Loran. #japan 🇯🇵 #tokyo 🇯🇵 #hachioji #tokyofujiartmuseum #permanentexhibition #westernpainting #pieterbout #bout #adriaenfransboudewijns #boudewijns #italy 🇮🇹 #landscape #belgium 🇧🇪 #brussels #flemish #italianate #idealizedlandscapes #claudelorrain #romanticism #art 🎨 #painting 🎨 #museum #美術館 #ベルギー
‘The Ascension’ - Painted by the Venetian Antonio Bellucci in the early 1700’s. It was originally painted as a ceiling piece for the 1st Duke of Chandos to display in his stately home ‘Canons’. In 1747 the painting was purchased by 2nd Baron Foley for his newly built church at Great Witley and there it hangs to this day⛪️🎨 • • #art #art_spotlight #arts #artsy #oilpainting #ceilingart #italianate #architecture #architecturephotography #painting #history #ig_art #artofinstagram #photojournalism #discoverworcestershire #igersworcs #bbcmidlands #gloriousbritain #capturingbritain #ukpotd #potd #uk_shooters #photography #canon #canonuk #canoneos
Italianate in black
Second floor of the Alexander and Gubser Funeral Home, originally the home of the Hamilton Family of Jerseyville. Though it has vernacular influences, the home is built in the Italianate architectural style. It has operated as funeral home since 1934.
One more for your Sunday night! Looks like a mishmash of styles here but that cupola has me swooning!

Spent this snowy day doing some repairs and uncovered a piece of what I think was the original wallpaper from 1873. This is the only clue we’ve ever seen about the original interior. It was covered up in about 1940 when indoor plumbing was added. We think we’ll leave it just like this. #19century #victorian #italianate #farmhouse #merryall #newmilford #wallpaper #history #historymatters

🌿Taylor is making his way back home from Arizona tonight! I couldn’t be more ready for him to be home. The house is all cozy & a batch of cookies are baking in the oven! 😌 Anything to make the transition easier from 70 degree ☀️ weather to our NEGATIVE 🥶 temps!🌿
Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness. -Mary Oliver

The Palmer Home, or John Ravenel House, is an Italianate mansion located at 5 East Battery Street in Charleston, South Carolina. It was built between 1847 and 1849 for John Ravenel, a local planter, merchant, shipper, and president of the South Carolina Railroad. Upon the death of Ravenel, his son Dr. Saint Julien Ravenel (best known for building a submersible to attack the Union Army blockade in the Civil War) took possession. He sold it in 1886 to Elias Horry Frost, a cotton broker and Ravenel's son-in-law. Frost was principally responsible for fixing up the house after the Great Earthquake in 1886. He added some Victorian details at the time. The house remained in the Ravenel family until 1953. From 1977 until 2016 it was operated as a Bed and Breakfast until it was sold into private hands once more. In this picture you can see some scaffolding. It was taken in December of 2017.
New gas logs with thermostat installed today. Not the best heating source for solid brick construction but they help. #liztonhouse #victorian #italianate #thisoldhouse #19thcentury

#admiraltyhouse 1843 is the #Sydney official residence of the Governor-General of #Australia . It is located in the suburb of #Kirribilli , on the northern foreshore of #SydneyHarbour . This large #Victorian #Regency and #Italianate #sandstone manor, completed in stages based on designs by James Barnet and Walter Liberty Vernon, occupies the tip of Kirribilli Point.
Pictures of the men’s and ladies parlors, taken upon closing. Both rooms are near identical except for one little detail. The columns and fretwork on the fireplace in one room is much more petite and delicate than the other. It leads me to believe that particular room was for the ladies to gather. The moulding around the perimeter throughout the entire house is plaster as is the ceiling in the front parlor. It can be restored where needed. There are 8 fireplaces total and 1 remaining chimney. The fireplace in my room has been covered over, and I believe the mantle is here somewhere. I have recently been in contact with the great great grand daughter of Wallace Rowe, and she was told that there were buzzers under the tables to call the servants and they all wore uniforms. I can confirm that they also had their own closet ( small room) with floor to ceiling drawers. It’s still here. Concerning the neoclassical columns; they were installed at a bit of a later date. The Rowe family and Cruikshank family were both lumber barons and after the Cruikshanks had these exact columns installed in the Waldorf room of their mansion, the Rowe family decided they wanted some too. I haven’t researched the timeframe to know if it was done under Joseph Rowe’s ownership or after he passed it on to his daughter Clara, as she and one of the Cruikshank daughters were best of friends. The symmetry of both rooms flow as it was meant to. #thegildedage #parlor #neoclassical #historic #missourihistory #restoration #preservation #timelessdesign #interiordesign #renovation #fireplaces #columns #pillars #plaster #classicdesign #italianate #millionairesrow #pittsburghsteel #5thandgilded #historicdistrict #uptown #downtown #symmetry
1890s Victorian doors from Cashiers NC going in at The Mad Ten Lakehouse. I did a trade for them about 7 years ago.

Oh yeah... we have a set of pocket doors that matches the doors in our last post. Interesting feature on these is that one side is birch (we believe) but the other side is Oak, swipe to 👀 a pic of the other side. Each door is about 36” x 90”. . . . . . . . . #fourpanel #italianate #victorian #victorianhouse #architecturalsalvage #deconstruction #reclaimingmadison #olddoors #olddoor #doorsofinstagram #salvage #craftsmanship #woodworking #architecrure #doorhardware #reclaimingmadison #pocketdoors #pocketdoor #slidingdoors #slidingdoor #slidingdoorhardware #madisonwi #madison #wisconsinwinter #winterinwisconsin #doorlove #doors_or_windows

The c. 1873 Williams-Powers-Newman House is a Neoclassical Revival style dwelling that was significantly reconstructed following a 1932 fire. The renovation, designed by local architect Edgar Lee Love (1876-1936), resulted in the removal of original Italianate and Queen Anne architectural elements.

Calling all lovers of historic homes! Check out the Gassaway-Feldmeyer House in Annapolis, MD. 👀 MLS # 1002014690, 194 Prince George Street, is listed by @hubblebisbeefinehomes.
Another awesome discovery by our electricians today as they were fishing wires through the attic. These original drawings were rolled up and stuffed into the walls. One of the DeLand family members drew them in 1883 (according to the signature). One is signed ‘S. DeLand,’ so we are speculating it was Stella, one of Minerva’s daughters, who would have been in her late teens. It’s hard to believe they are in such great condition after spending 136 years unprotected in the attic! . . . #history #thisoldhouse #oldhouse #oldhouselove #treasure #art #portrait #fairport #treasurehunt #italianate #renovation #project #oldhousefinds #historicalhomes #house
