::cozy craftsman::

March 13, 2010 § 3 Comments

there are SO many 1940s and 50s homes in central austin that look like this and others dying for some fantastic love and classy updates. such are the residences of my dreams.

i love the thick windowsills, built in cabinets and signature high windows of this style. i’m also liking that gray+navy paint and the mixed neutral linen looking chair in the bottom shot.

the middle kitchen shot isn’t necessarily craftman, but it’s the same designer, gunkelman flesher, {what a mouthful} featured by my new fave desire to inspire. i like the high crown moulding and light cabinets with the dark countertops and floors. and that curved cabinetry! i’m $ure there i$ a rea$on curved countertop$ and cabinetry are $o rare. . .and thus more intriguing. naturally. i don’t know how well that painting above the sink is going to work out but i sure do love that espresso maker. . .

    I LOVE that navy + grey color! I need to paint something that color!!

    Erin, I especially like the bottom room, and the dark wall color look really good. I think these walls would have been beige when the house was built; so, it already looks updated to me.

    On the other hand, I’d love to hear your ideas, Erin!

    @patti do it! i’ll help you!

    @jgarrett yes, these have definitely already been updated. but the low ceilings, cabinets, window size and frames, help them keep their original style, or mirror that older craftsman style that they’re going for, even if the house is brand new.
