The Alexander House, built in 1845, is a rare surviving example of a simple Greek Revival design in Lake Geneva with its half-sized attic windows (seen on the side of the home) and the front door pediment. It orginally was white clapboard. . . #smallhousesunday #greekrevival #1840s #oldhome #oldhousecharm #theamericanhome #lakegenevawi
Our gathering place for the holidays. Mantle and mini pencil tree complete. It's not the traditional color scheme, but I truly adore this blue, pink and white themed tree. Hope your weekend was wonderful and maybe filled with twinkle lights too! 💖🍃💫🍃💖🍃💫🍃💖 . . . #holidaymantle #holidayhome #mantledecor #frenchcountry #whitefireplace #provencal #howyouhome #southernliving #romantichome #paintedbrick #livingroom #twinklelights #vintageheartandhome #frenchcountrychristmas #christmasdecor #holidaydecor #pursuepretty #decoratingforchristmas #oldhouselove #flashesofdelight #christmasglow #theamericanhome #myholidayhome #blueandwhitechristmas #vintagehomelove #myseasonalnest #blueandwhite #minimondaydecorparade #southerncharmholiday #ourtudorrevival
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
Sometimes the side of a house is way more interesting than the front. Steele & W. 3rd St.

Built in 1813, a grand house with double verandas overlooking the river 💕. A bit unusual, the main entrance is on the side of the house which was apparently a renovation choice way back when... #oldhouse #oldhouselove #beautifulhouseoldandnew #architecture #archi_ologie #luvbft #beaufortsc #antebellum #theamericanhome #prettyoldhouse #southernliving #lowcountry #lowcountrylife #postitfortheaesthetic #theprettycities #homesofthesouth

"November...Days with a high-sprung sky of flawless turquoise. Days when an exquisite melancholy seemed to hang over the landscape and dream about the lake." - L.M. Montgomery
Architecture Highlight: Fallingwater is a house designed in 1935 by renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright(1867-1959). The house was designed as a private residence and weekend home for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner, Edgar J. Kaufmann, Sr. Fallingwater is one of Wright’s most widely acclaimed works and best exemplifies his philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. #franklloydwright #VScreative #americanarchitecture   #adaptivereuse  #architecturalphotography   #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces   #louiskahn   #organicarchitecture   #tadaoando   #chicagoarchitecture   #historicpreservation   #santiagocalatrava   #contemporaryarchitecture   #herzogdemeuron   #remkoolhaas   #modernistarchitecture   #architecturedaily   #instarchitecture   #modernism   #architecturelovers   #frankgehry   #historicarchitecture   #theamericanhome   #architecturaldigest   #artdecoarchitecture   #franklloydwright  #archi_ologie

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
At 39 W. Court St....exquisite details on this 1890’s Colonial Revival...delicate garland frieze, graceful curved stone portico & intricate decorative band separating rugged stone 1st story from second story for starts. However what really caught my attention was that gorgeous stained glass bay window at the staircase landing. Can you imagine ascending the grand staircase with light streaming through that window?? Wow! I’m dreamin’ again! Please swipe to see bay window. #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianarchitecture #victorianstyle #archi_ologie #archilovers #archilove #theamericanhome #housestalker #houseaddict #oldhouselove #oldhouseenthusiast #iloveoldhouses #thisoldhouse #oldhousecharm #historichouse #houseportrait #ipulledoverforthis #loveofoldhouses #beautifulhouseoldandnew #houses_ofthe_world #casasecasarios #total_houses #houses_phototrip #chasing_facades
Happy Frank Lloyd Wright Friday! . Regrann from @aaroneskridge of the Walter Rudin House (1959) in Madison, Wisconsin. It is one of only two examples of the Marshall Erdman Prefab House #2 - a large, square house w/ a flat roof & two-story living room (and a full basement, which is unusual for Wright). . Wright worked with Erdman on designing better prefabricated homes. A package with all major structural components would be sent out to a buyer, in this case University of Wisconsin mathematicians Walter and Mary Ellen Rudin. . Wright would usually study topographic maps to determine the perfect siting for a home, but in this case he wasn't consulted and the glass walls face north instead of south, exposing the rooms to the cold winter winds. . . . #franklloydwrightfridays #mcm #midcentury #midcenturymodern #midcenturyhome #modernwisconsin #modernwisconsinhomes #midcenturymadison #madisonwisconsin #dreamhome #aaronlovesarchitecture #aaronlovesmadison #franklloydwright #franklloydwrighthouse #walterrudinhouse #theamericanhome #regrann

The problem with taking so many photos of old homes is I inevitably forget where a house is... like this one. This pretty green Queen Anne Victorian is most likely in Minneapolis but I can't for the life of me remember where.😂 #whereami #oldhomes #historichome #theamericanhome #fridaysfrontporch #frontporchfriday #iloveoldhouses #archilovers #architecturelover #vintagehome #queenanne #queenannearchitecture #victorianhome #victorianstyle #towerlove #towertuesday #greenhouse #minneapolis #minnesota #minnesotahomes #historichomesofminnesota #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #paintedlady
I love houses as much as I love those tulips 🌷
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
It's cold out there so pick a fireplace, any fireplace. I'll take 2, 3, and 8.🔥 . Now the Driehaus Museum, this 1883 house was designed by the architectural firm of Burling and Whitehouse for Samuel Nickerson, the founder of the First National Bank of Chicago. The 25,000 square foot mansion is decorated with seventeen different kinds of marble (giving it the nickname of "the Marble Palace"), carved and inlaid wood, tile, mosaics, hand-tooled leather, and a fireplace in just about every room. The home cost $450,000 (in today's money that's $100 million) when the average yearly salary was $300. Crazy, huh? Between 1919 and 2003 the American College of Surgeons had their headquarters located in the house. They kept good care of it as 95% of the original house was left intact. Chicago businessman Richard Driehaus restored and opened the property to the public as the Driehaus Museum in 2008. I recommend that all old house lovers pay a visit, if you haven't already. . . #interiorthursdays #fireplace #driehausmuseum #oldhouselove #theamericanhome #gildedage #mansion #1880s #chitecture #chicago
Repost @archi_ologie by @media.repost : #deserve2preserve Tuesday our weekly co-challenge with @oldhouselove continues with Carrie's pick. The cutest lil cottage! Rescue it please! @Regran_ed from @jpinthe313 - There are a lot of positive vibrations in the Osborn neighborhood at the moment. Here's to hoping homes like this catch some of them.

The F.H. Nipp home has officially been ours for a year. Every single day we are so grateful to call this old home ours 💕
Does this mean we don’t have to rake the leaves that had *just* fallen? Cause if so, then I might be okay with the snow. Maybe. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
