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

SLOW LIFE X PARIS S’inspirer des vibrations du vieux Paris, rien de tel pour alimenter l’imagination et faire briller sa créativité 🥰 . Bienvenue à la Galerie Véro-Dodat, petit passage couvert niché entre le Palais-Royal et les Halles, inscrite au titre de monument historique. À l’époque les parisiens allaient flâner dans les dernières boutiques à la mode. Son architecture élégante ornée de peintures et les devantures anciennes de ses échoppes continuent de fasciner ✨ .

Hot steamy night alone I wait for you...Cold brittle morning alone and I cry for you...And when you finally call...You cloak your moves in the shadows...Those days and nights I was good to you...They must not have meant very much to you...The night I needed you the most...My cries fell on deaf ears...And I'm running so hard to find it...And I'm running so fast...And I'm telling you now to leave me, our romance cannot last...And if someday I need to see you...I'll come back from the past...I'll come back and find you, I'll never leave you now... -- Running ▶️ Information Society (*Music in my IG Story 😊✌🏽🎧🎶)
Is it just me or does anyone else get worried when they see contractor/construction company signs in front of an old house? Dr. Amory House // 1869 // Second Empire

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
Grands appartements de Napoléon III au Louvre. Surchargés de dorures, de stucs, de bronzes et de cristaux, ils sont l’éternelle vitrine du style Second Empire. Il s’affiche dans toute sa splendeur, dans toute son outrance, parfois pesante. Cependant en dans ces pièces, il présente un ensemble harmonieux qui laisse entrevoir le faste avec lequel « Badinguet » recevait diplomates et courtisans comme Mérimée ou Morny. Ce luxe tapageur brille comme une bulle de champagne aussi enivrante que la musique d’Offenbach.

The Second Empire strikes back. Opulent, elegant and ornate, Second Empire architecture expresses a cosmopolitan sense of style. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What makes this particular Second Empire building unique? It is the tallest masonry building in the world. No steel or iron was used, only brick, marble and granite was used to construct it.
Legacy Of An Empire | The Gilded Age in europe 1870 - 1910 saw the rise of Historism, also often called Beaux-Arts, which pursued the revival of historic styles of art to recreate a new version of the past. Originaring in the French National Academy for Beautiful Arts (Beaux Arts) in Paris, it aimed to recreate past beauty in the most glorious and refined way, which also sought to represent the imperial and national pride of the empires of eueope. Besides Paris and other cities in France where this style was represented the most, it also spread to the German Empire where many examples could be seen in Berlin in the 1890s and 1900s. The most shining achievement of this philosophy is Opera Garnier in Paris, built as the Imperial Opera of the Second French Empire in 1865, which I showed in previous posts, of which I now, due to large public request, present you another view into the grand staircase. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #classical #classicalarchitecture #ancientgreece #classicism #paris #parisienne #opera #operagarnier #opéragarnier #napoleon #secondempire
One online listing for this gorgeous Second Empire home (circa 1870) in Cold Spring, New York attributes the design to "A.J. Bicknell." It turns out that he was actually a publisher of architecture books and not an architect. Before we delve a bit further into that, let's learn a bit more about Mr. Bicknell. Amos Jackson was the son of Humphrey and Aseneth Raymond Bicknell born in 1839. While he was born in New York, he and his siblings Mary, Raymond, Alice, and Sophronia were raised in the Berkshires. It seems that the Bicknell line in America may trace back to the Puritans' Great Migration of 1620-1640. His grandfather, Nathaniel Bicknell, answered the Lexington Alarm in 1775. Amos married Mary Jane and their children were Stella, Elizabeth, Charles and Amos. While Amos Sr was not an architect, he came to specialize in books on architecture. At one point, A.J. Bicknell published a catalogue that featured 62 pages of its offerings. Bicknell had expanded upon the work of Alexander Jackson Downing whose "Cottage Residences" was published in 1841. After the Civil War, building began again and people found inspiration in books. In 1867, Bicknell followed a compendium published by Cummings and Miller with his own book that included designs and details from architects. And there were many more to follow. Eventually architect and publisher William Comstock joined Bicknell and the company became known as Bicknell & Comstock with the latter taking over in 1881. It is thought that thousands of homes across the country were built from designs found in books published by Bicknell and others. Take away the porch and add iron roof creating and this home is the twin of the one featured on the cover of "Bicknell's Victorian Buildings" I have included that image and others in my recent stories.
Hi. Hey. Hello there. Take a seat and behold this stunning Victorian we passed in Soulard today on our way home from an appointment. This is the Dr. Franz Arzt house and it is stunning, so much so that @stlouismag says it might be the best-preserved Second Empire house in the entire city, representing a style of architecture whose opulence could once only be found in St. Louis. It is currently being lovingly and immaculately restored to its 1876 glory. Bow in reverence. 🤓👏🏼🙇🏼‍♀️
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

🏗 15 janvier 1927 Inauguration du boulevard Haussmann à Paris Dans le cadre de la transformation de Paris, le préfet Haussmann conçoit cet axe de grande circulation comme une voie diagonale reliant le premier cercle des Grands Boulevards à celui du mur des Fermiers généraux. La foule envahit la nouvelle artère: «un instant de désordre parfait où il n'y a plus ni ministres ni conseillers municipaux, ni invité ni protocole.» Et pour la première fois, le boulevard Haussmann se trouve embouteillé. #15janvier #january15 #1927 #haussmann #paris #bdhaussmann #georgeseugenehaussmann #secondempire #napoleonIII #galerieslafayette #printempshaussmann #printemps
A Classical Reawakening | The 19th century was first and foremost the age of the grand empires of europe, who often arose out of the many small states of the 18th century. What was unique to this new european order is that it more than ever took its national and cultural idenity from the Roman antiquity, which was seen as representation of enlightenment, purity, strength, and imperial unity. A place where this spirit flourished exceptionally was the Second French Empire, under its ruler Napoleon III. A spirit that is here beautifully visualised in the grand staircase of the Opera Garnier of 1865, of which we here enjoy the special entrance from the staircase to the auditorium, made for the emperor Napoleon III. himself. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #classical #classicalarchitecture #ancientgreece #classicism #paris #parisienne #opera #operagarnier #opéragarnier #napoleon #secondempire
I really appreciate all of the love I received when I shared my National Trust feature! Architectural photography is part of my job, but it’s also a creative outlet - feeling like it resonates with other people means a lot to me. 📸 And on that note, happy #MansardMonday from just over the state line. The Linwood Cotton Mill (1866) in Northbridge, MA is now a mix of residences and retail. (If you’re in the area check out Maison de Manger on the ground level for great crêpes!)
This Bay City beauty is apartments now. It's still looking good! #baycitymi #secondempire #brickhouse

Ooo my first #mansardmonday ! (Not a super popular style in central Florida considering they were big up north in the 1870s up until the turn of the century - a time when the newly incorporated Town of Orlando (1875) had less than 100 residents!). #funfact I love the mansard style roof, not because I particularly love the look, but because it was an OG- #lifehack ! From what I understand, by fitting a full floor of living space above the cornice of the building (“inside” the roof), the owner and/or builder was able to save money on taxes because it wasn’t actually considered an additional floor. #sneaky #oldschool #taxloophole #secondempire #zanesville #ohio #smalltownusa #architecture_hunter #historichomes #orlandohistory #historicohio #thisplacematters
1876. “George Hawes House.” (2 photos) This Fall River Second Empire home has a very distinct roofline, similar to many other mansards in the neighborhood. Unlike the others, this home needs quite a bit of TLC. It was once the home of George Hawes, who was born in Fall River in 1840 to a wealthy family, and later became a successful cotton cloth broker in his own right. He was also the director of the Narragansett Mills, Stevens Mills, and Barnaby Mills, as well as the vice president of the Metacomet National Bank, until his death in 1902. He was described thusly, “He had few equals as a student of trade conditions and market tendencies, and with the knowledge of such matters combined rare qualities as a judge of human nature which seldom failed him in estimating people or situations. His words carried authority, and his opinion had great weight among those acquainted with him and with the business.” (https://www.accessgenealogy.com/genealogy/hawes-family-wrentham-ma.htm) Sounds like the life of the party 😉
- Détail de la Une du Petit Journal du 18 septembre 1910, à l'occasion du cinquantenaire de l'Annexion de la Savoie à la France. Légende de la gravure au verso de cette Une : La Savoie a célébré par de grandes fêtes le cinquantenaire de sa réunion à la France. Lorsqu'en 1860 Napoléon III la réclama de Cavour comme le juste prix de la collaboration de la France dans l'œuvre d'unité et d'indépendance de l'Italie, la Savoie n'était- elle pas déjà française par sa langue, par ses traditions, par ses intérêts ? Cette belle Savoie, riche, pittoresque, instruite - c'est de toutes nos provinces celle où il y a le moins d'illettrés - est venue à la France librement. Et depuis lors, comme l'a observé le Président de la République dans son discours de Chambéry, sa fidélité ne s'est jamais démentie. On ne saurait fêter avec trop d'enthousiasme d'aussi heureux anniversaires. Camille de Cavour (1810-1861) : homme d'État, président du conseil des ministres de 1852 à 1861, sous le règne de Victor-Emmanuel II. Le président de la République était alors Armand Fallières (1841-1931), chef de l'État de 1906 à 1913. Qui écrirait encore une telle légende aujourd'hui ? Mais à l'époque, le patriotisme était une valeur fondamentale, non de la république, mais de la Nation française. ------------------------------------------- #histoiredesavoie #histoiresavoie #patrimoinesavoie #GuidesGPPS #GuidesPSMB #savoiemontblanc #savoie #france #hautesavoie #histoire #Cavour #fondazionecavour #savoia #patrimoinesavoyard #hautesavoie_dep74 #secretsdhistoire #victoremmanuelII #VittorioemanueleII #histoiredefrance #armandfallieres #presidencedelarepublique #présidencedelarépublique #NapoleonIII #secondempire @secretsdhistoire @savoiemontblanc @hautesavoie_dep74 @guides_psmb @museirealitorino @archiviodistatoditorino @passion.patrimoine @elysee @histoiredefrance
Le pavillon de l'étang du château de Fontainebleau (Seine-et-Marne, France) fut construit en 1662. Ce salon accueillit des collations, puis fut meublé sous le Second Empire. Au fur et à mesure des années, l'humidité abîma le bâtiment dont la restauration a commencé. #pavillondeletang #chateaudefontainebleau #histoiredefrance #histoiremoderne #secondempire #restauration #museefrancais #museesdumonde #historicmuseums
Enjoying the Artistic Magnificance that seems to cover every last space in the grand Opera Garnier, composing one of the most outstanding pieces of western architecture ever created. You are looking at one of the sheer endless wall ornaments in the Grand Foyer or the Opera Garnier, which I showed to you in previous posts, designed by the grand opera's architect Charles Garnier in 1865, as the new imperial opera of France. It now serves to remind of the degree of artistic beauty and sophistication that is possible when true artistic achievement and aesthetical appeal is valued . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #classical #classicalarchitecture #ancientgreece #classicism #paris #parisienne #opera #operagarnier #opéragarnier #napoleon #secondempire

“Winter reminds us that everyone and everything needs some quiet time.” ~ Katrina Mayer. Also, I love our street in the snow. For about three days. ❤️❄️
This is the *other* side of our house that doesn’t get much love on Instagram. I still love the look of the fading yellow paint but it is lead-based and has to go. One of our goals this year is to show more of the #wip side of taking on an old house. The dirty stuff that scares people 😂. This spring, we plan on hitting our landscaping pretty hard on this side along with building a fence. Fun fact: the tree in our backyard is an Aspen. I have no idea why it has survived in southern IL, but it has... even after falling over during a terrible storm. 🤷🏻‍♀️
This blue beauty was originally owned by A New York textile merchant, David Ryer (known as the David Ryer house). He moved to Matawan and built this elaborate, French Second Empire style mansion, in 1873. These style of homes were in high fashion, back then. Thankfully, it has survived and kept all of the original features. It is the one of the most strikingly beautiful residences in the shore area. . . . #njhistory #centuryhome #mansardroof #mansardmonday #matawannj #matawan #jerseyshore #monmouthcounty #architecturephotography #archi_ologie #architecture #frenchsecondempire #architectureporn #oldschoolcool #instajersey #jerseygram #americanarchitecture #secondempire #archi_features #archilovers #architecture_greatshots #gardenstate #centraljerseyexists #jshn #njspots #oldhouselove #housesofnewjersey #njisbeautiful #njisallgood #NJLore

"A Night At The Opera" | Continuing our journey through one of the greatest architectural marvels ever created, the Opera Garnier, the grand Foyer at nighttime recreates the splenderous ambience of a splenderous night at the Garnier Garnier during the European Gilded age more than one could ever hope to. Designed by the famous Belle-Epoche architect Charles Garnier, under the order of the second and last French Emperor Napoleon III in 1865, as the new Imperial Opera, its architectural and artistic majesty is one of the brighest achievements of European Classicism. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #classical #classicalarchitecture #ancientgreece #classicism #paris #parisienne #opera #operagarnier #opéragarnier #napoleon #secondempire

I wanted to put a warning picture up before posting the actual picture because I realize that many people may not want to see it, or may find it...disturbing? Anyway, I wanted to give all of you fair warning. With that being said, curiosity got the best of me and I went to the carriage house to peek inside the pot belly stove and see what was there. Let's just say that it has become the final resting place for many things that found their way in but didn't find the way out. Still, determined to find treasure and in my most Victorian frame of mind, I thought..."wouldn't it be fantastic to get one of those little skeletons, mount it and put it under a glass dome like you would see in the Natural History museum?" Isn't that the most Victorian thing ever?! . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #victoriandecor #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #nature #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #museum #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse

Here's another carriage house feature that needs a LOT of TLC...A lot...Legend has it that some of the live-in servants of the family used to live in the carriage house, which would make sense because the carriage house is as big as the house. The horses would have been on one side, while the servants would have lived on the other side. No, they did not live WITH the horses, there's a door separating the two. My only concern is that there's no evidence of a bathroom...but at least they would have been warm because this thing is a beast....it is at least 5' of pure cast iron. I have never opened it to see what's inside...why haven't I done that yet? 🤔 . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldHeater #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #castiron #victorianarchitecture #itscold #warm #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse
"At The Opera" | There is seldomly a place where the Majesty of the Gilded Age can be enjoyed more than in the gilded halls of the Opera Garnier. But the splenderous building that since 1875 serves as the national opera of Paris built by the Beaux-Arts style architect Charles Garnier from 1865 until 1875 stands not only as the maybe most typical symbol of the gilded age of ca. 1860 - 1910, but also as the most refined manifestation of the Beaux-Arts style, a style that rose to great prominence in western europe in the late 19th century, especially in France and Germany, but also overeeas in the new world such as in New York. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #medievalstyle #medievalarchitecture #medievalworld #medieval #middleages #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #paris #parisienne #opera #operagarnier #opéragarnier #napoleon #secondempire
