Arts and Crafts style homes have always appealed to us because they are so “homey.” But beyond just feeling like a place you’d want to curl up and read a book, these Turn of the Century homes are strong, clean-lined, simple and built to last. We had the pleasure of staging a home like this in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles over the last two days, and it was a real treat. The structure of this 1908 beauty is muscular and pleasingly direct. We always say that a home will “tell” us what it wants and needs us to fill it with. This home was no exception. She “spat out” items that we thought “just might work.” But no, she wouldn’t have it. After the first hour, we were so in tune with her early 20th Century vibe that we’d know instantly what would work — and what wouldn’t. Here are the results.
