|You should notice that the Colonial Revival is much too "Frenchy" and |
elegant for the Colonial style, belonging more accurately to Early American styles.
|Colonial era stairs were not what we've come to erroneously imagine. |
They were narrow, steep, and very simply adorned with lathe-turned spindles.
|From log cabin crude to hand-printed French wallpaper.|
|Bathing was a major undertaking during the colonial eras.|
|A Colonial laundry room? Don't even try.|
