The hall in the #SouthMelbourneTownHall is very grand, but just a bit bland; maybe in 1880 it had a far more decorative #colourscheme ? Quite likely. Don’t know but maybe this scheme is from the 1930s when it had a big renovation, the #blackwood panelling, doors, nice #terrazzo stair all date from then. Heard there was some #roofleak problems, if so then it got the ground floor corridor somehow, plaster and flooring gone ! (there’s a slowly clicking, rotating machine on the stage, did I just interrupt a laser rendering of the interior ? The door was open !)

Revisiting my photo choice of the Hotel de Paris a few days/posts ago before it gets more separated. If I had thought about it, I might have posted both of these photos at the same time. Here, although you cannot see the whole building, you can more easily make out “Paris” and the building is not distorted.

As noted before, this is far from Paris and is not the Hotel de Paris where I stayed in October. Nor is it the Georgetown in Washington, DC. Still, it is a historic place from the old American west and a favorite place to visit. 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨 🏨

CLASSIC KITCHEN UPDATE | HEART OF THE HOME | One passes through the automatic sliding glass doors at the center of the image etched with the same pattern as the original hardwood doors which remain along the adjacent corridor and throughout the house. The tall lamps on the island were chosen to create an unexpected, elegant, vertical focal point leading upwards to the hand-painted coffers; an homage to the original period and a juxtaposition to the decidedly contemporary open space and reinforced ceiling structure. | #mediterranean #italianate #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #kitcheninspiration #instakitchen #instadesign  #toneontone #greytones #mixedmetals #customfurniture #italianantiques #elegant #sophisticated #chic #fun #warm #inviting #cozy #expansive #entertaining #indooroutdoorliving #luxurylifestyle #interiordesign #interiordesigner #JVD

CLASSIC KITCHEN UPDATE | LET’S EAT! | We took a formal 1930 Mediterranean Manse kitchen with traditionally compartmentalized rooms for cooking, pantry storage, staff dining - even a restroom - and blew it out to create an expansive yet inviting, warm, and complimentary open space for a household with growing and always hungry kids and their friends on the go and for preparing elaborate meals for entertaining. | #mediterranean #italianate #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #kitcheninspiration #instakitchen #toneontone #greytones #mixedmetals #elegant #sophisticated #chic #warm #inviting #cozy #expansive #entertaining #indooroutdoorliving #customcabinets #customfurniture #customfinishes #luxurylifestyle #interiordesign #interiordesigner #JVD

WE ARE SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT!!! Thank you to this wonderful and talented lady for offering to create an original stained glass piece to fill the first of our three empty transoms. Sandy came over on Tuesday with the finished piece and it fit like a glove! We'll post more pictures after we get it in place...Dave needs to cut trim pieces to hold it in place. No clue what the originals looked like, but we doubt they were half has special as this!

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? 🤷‍♀️

One of my favorite things to collect are antique Victorian and Edwardian era novels. I love the details on them! The scrollwork on the jackets, the depictions of elegant women on the covers. And I do actually read them! Plus, they make for cool decor. They are getting harder and harder to find. All of these are at least 100 plus years old. I have picked them up here and there. I never pay more than $5 for a book (unless it is really special). But I am always excited when I come across one. 💕📚 #antiques #antiquebooks #victoriannovel #edwardiannovel #victorianfashion #edwardianfashion #oldbooks #books #reading #oldstuff #bookcollector #history #historicalhome #centuryhome #italianate #oldhouses #oldhouselove #antiquetypewriter #antiquelibrary #evergreenhome1860

She's a tall girl with 12 foot ceilings on both floors, so imagine the size of those two pine trees (and the stories they could tell).

I am glad to present you my commissioned painting for Tower Hill Botanical garden. It will be part of the “Horticultural heroes” permanent exhibition starting in March. 
This is a portrait of Marian Coffin, who graduated #MIT in 1905 as a landscape architect. There were only four women graduating in this field that year at MIT, which was however one of the few colleges where women were accepted. Marian Coffin created beautiful and gigantic gardens such as Winterthur, or the campus of the university of Delaware. They involved huge trees - the azaleas in the background are trees higher than a person, colored blooming flowers, reflecting pools, stairs, statues. These gardens remind me of paintings by Monet or other impressionists which inspired the portrait. Relating to her time, I painted a Belle Époque kind of image. Marian Coffin remained single and founded her own company because no male-architect firm would dare hire her. She is represented alone in her overwhelming garden. I hope you will like it!

12 x 16 inches

Thank you @towerhillbg for such a beautiful idea!

Take a break from our beaches to learn about our rich history. 
The St. Barnabas Church, built in Italianate Architecture is one of the oldest churches and structures on the island. Utilizing the limestone found nearby, this beautiful structure was erected and is here for everyone’s enjoyment. See you soon.

Photographer Tim May - and not the the weather - decided when to stop making photographs tonight. Tim was above the Pacific Coast Highway, with the Italianate Villa de Leon mansion in the background. •

I was in exploration mode for a few hours today, driving around the Whittier neighbourhood of Minneapolis. 
Discovered the Elisha and Lizzie Morse House, an Italian Villa, originally built in 1874 as a country home. It was moved to this location in 1991 from its original spot on the east side of 35W.

It has been renovated/restored and is currently condominiums, and most importantly is a designated Minneapolis landmark. The porch has been added, but the original cupola and cut-plank siding still remain. The siding is made of flat and planed planks that are incised to convey the impression of cut stone, and is a siding technique rarely used in Minnesota architecture.

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!

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...

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

Only ever driven down #GrandviewGrove, #Prahran, happened to be invited to a book launch, and goodness I can see why it’s called Grandview. One of those streets in a good suburb subdivided (in 1880) with big blocks so of course it’s lined with #VictorianMansions, or at least very large houses, not quite as big as the biggest mansions. I only snapped a few at one end. Very nice.

We met with the #perinton town historian a few weeks ago - he gave us a ton of pictures and articles about the history of house. So interesting! One thing we noticed was this small sapling in front of this 1940 image of the house is still growing in the front yard today. These pictures are from 1940, 1960, and 2017, making the tree about 85 years old. .

Snowy front yards for these simple Italianate row houses built in 1872. The 1700 block of S St. NW at the very northern end of Dupont Circle, practically Adams Morgan. #igdc #dctography #morethanmonuments #onlyindc #theotherdc #washingtondc #dupontcircle #adamsmorgan #dcrowhouses #rowhouses #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #houses_ofthe_world #cityscape #citygrammers #allstreetshots #dcatreets #buildings_of_dc #italianate #architecture #brick #snow #snowstorm #winter #morningwalk

The Greek Revival architectural style isn’t only found on large mansions – modest shotgun houses also employed the popular style during the mid-19th century, like this single shotgun example in Bywater complete with an #entablature, #parapet, #dentils and a rusticated wood facade. 🏛️ This house’s double-paired brackets show the transition of the Greek Revival style into the more ornate #Italianate style that followed, and remained popular in New Orleans from the 1860s until the 1880s.

🌿 We decided to jump on the #52weeksofhome challenge by @amyleigh_1902victorian after finding her account & falling in love with all the beautiful homes using the hashtag! This week is {house portrait} so here are a few views of our 1891 italianate farmhouse. Her exterior had been stripped of many of her original details, including what we believe was once a beautiful wrap around porch from the markings left on the brick. She does still have most of her corbels & we were able to find the original shutters out in a pile in the pasture. We have many plans to dress her up like she once was, but for now we hope you can see the beauty in all her bare bones glory.🌿

Dave and Arlow had to bring me to work this morning because our quarter of a mile lane has 8 inches of snow and drifts all the way down and we only have one vehicle we trust to make the trek. We were running behind, but I made Dave wait so I could run to the front of the house to snap a few pictures. Normally not a big fan of snow in Illinois, especially after living in Colorado. Poor Dave, born and raised in SLC, wondered what we do all winter in the prairie lands when we first moved here...I said hibernate. But, this snow, how can you not love it?! At least for a day or two.

Our home is a Victorian Italianate style structure, but I like to think that it was once a farmhouse of sorts. It originally sat on 20 acres, so my vision has always been of a “sophisticated farmhouse.” When we decided to add a mudroom and half bath, I had no hesitation about making this space casual and a little bit country. In fact, our entire home is a mix of casual, collected, country, sophistication. Hmmm...pretty sure that design style doesn’t have a name, so I guess we reside in the “unclassified” section of design style. 😊

The beautiful South Brisbane Municipal Chambers (also known as South Brisbane Town Hall) was built in 1891 and officially opened in 1892. The Italianate revival design was attributed to John Smith Murdoch from the architectural firm John Hall and Sons. Murdoch was described as a “quiet and dry” man who simply got on with tasks that he was given. Few people ever thought he was capable of having a good time! He never married, a dedicated member of the Masonic Order, kept to himself and was frugal in every aspect of his personal life. Yet when it came to his work, a brilliant magic would explode like fireworks. Every Australian would know his most famous design, that being the old Parliament House in Canberra as well as the Canberra Hotel and the General Post Office in Perth. His elegant designs would stand the test of time. Swipe to see this building in its entirety. Just goes to show, it’s the quiet ones you have to watch! 😃👏👏 #southbrisbane #southbrisbanetownhall #brisbane #queensland #visitbrisbane #queenslandlife #queenslandstyle #queenslandarchitecture #townhall #brisbanearchitecture #italianate #victorian #victorianbuilding #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturephoto #architectureporn #architecturelovers #architecturedesign #architecturedetails #oldbuilding #oldbuildinglover #brickdesign #southbank #architecture_hunter #brisbanearchitecture #historicbuilding

This 1887 restored and furnished Lumber Baron's home -- the Cook-Rutledge Mansion -- is one of the finest remaining examples of High Victorian Italianate architecture in Wisconsin.

Modestly neutral, ornately composed...this Italianate with its iconic tower, corbeled eaves, chamfered porch columns bellows welcoming hospitality🧡🧡🧡.

Hope your having a Sunday purely enjoying the day🙂☀️🙃.

These front doors stay sealed up during the winter months and we only open them up for special occasions until we get around to refinishing them. They're so fantastic in their present state, but we drool thinking about using them without having to make special maneuvers to open and close them. Fairly certain the front doors haven't been used as a main entrance for over 100 years and we are ready to bring them back!

This mid-19th century Italianate townhouse (no. 102) was acquired by Our Saviour’s Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1957. The congregation dates to 1878 and had worshiped on 9th Street in Gowanus since 1886.⠀

Morning light, afternoon light... they both do some amazing things to these houses. I’ve probably highlighted this one before, because I am in love with its beautiful Victorian green house in the yard (goals!). Love the soft pink glow of the morning sun on this Italianate/Queen Anne lady. ~1860s. Found on Vicksburg Street.
