Interesting idea! Nice! Bet that was a time consuming job cutting the stencil...

The foyer rug was purchased at an auction and the dinning room rug was custom made.

Good eye bungalowmo! The frieze is, indeed, a Bradbury and Bradbury design called "fir tree frieze." However this frieze is about 20" high, about twice the size of "fir tree". We purchased a run of Bradbury's paper frieze, enlarged the pattern, had a stencil cut, and then we picked the colors (I think there were 5) that were hand-stenciled around the frieze.

To cody922, don't despair, 20 colors isn't that many to try. Greige isn't really a craftsman color, so try warm reds, green-grays and blue-green-grays to bring the ochre to life.

The seat is about 52" long x 15" deep. The seat top hinges open and has storage underneath, for basketballs, lacrosse sticks and riding tack.

It looks like a modern Moorcroft Pottery piece in the Calla Lily pattern.

That is the correct product, however the shade is 46" in diameter. Be advised that this fixture does not put out much light (4 x 100w incandescent lamps.) You will need to either retrofit it with additional wiring and sockets, or install additional supplemental lighting in the ceiling. This room as 8 additional pinhole 60w IR NFL halogen downlights (dimmable) over the table. The ceiling in this room is 12' and the walls are dark, so this was about the right amount of lighting.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This era saw the introduction of a less formal hall and the abandonment of stuffy Victorian public rooms. Halls became places to sit and flowed into dining and living areas. The colors shown in this photo are perfect for the era; those in the Green Dining Room at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, designed by William Morris, beautifully illustrate the period as well.
Summer Baltzer added this to 9 Beautiful Craftsman Touches
8. Natural flooring. Craftsman homes generally stick to wood and stone floor finishes. Persian, Indian and Turkish rugs often anchored spaces, providing texture and warmth. Get this look: If money prevents a major installation, limit new flooring to smaller spaces or a few select, important rooms in your home. You can also introduce bits of Craftsman style with stone and wood furniture pieces and a showstopping rug from your local import store.
Morris despised fussy, cluttered Victorian decor, and he was a vocal critic of homes being built during the era. “It is common now to hear people say of such and such a piece of country or suburb: ‘Ah! It was so beautiful a year or so ago, but it has been quite spoilt by the building,’” he wrote. “Forty years back the building would have been looked on as a vast improvement; now we have grown conscious of the hideousness we are creating, and we go on creating it.”
Arts and CraftsThe oldest of the three styles, Arts and Crafts originated in the mid-19th century in Britain as a backlash against industrialism. The Arts and Crafts movement celebrated a return to handcrafted, artisan-made goods, including wood furniture, tapestries, wallpaper, pottery and stained glass.
