The Arts and Crafts Movement (1910s-1930s) will be our inspiration for decorating the house.

  • Neutral wall colors that accentuate the warm woodwork (brighter in the living room, slightly warmer and darker in the dining room)
  • Use of stained glass and colored decorative tiles for ornamentation (tiffany style lamps, prairie style light fixtures, Maybe instead of replacing fireplace mantle, I can stain it a richer color and glue tiles along the front.) For some reason this house doesn’t strike me as suitable for stained glass windows, except as interior decoration like the cabinet doors.
