House Blog Highlight: Building a Craftsman Inspired Home

May 28, 2008 |  by  |  House Blog Highlights, On the Web  |  Share

Our House is a no frills, straightforward blog that walks readers through firsthand experience of building a Craftsman inspired home. From the photos available it didn’t seem to me as though the exterior had a lot of Craftsman details worked into the design, however there is no mistaking the Craftsman influence within many key elements of the interior. From built-ins, to moulding, to cabinetry – you can tell the homeowners were interested in infusing the Arts and Crafts style in as many places as possible throughout their home. I especially love the clawfoot tub with oil rubbed faucet and stained glass window found in the bathroom. Another item worth pointing out about this home blog is that the homeowners are interested in incorporating some eco-conscious elements within their home such as geothermal heating and cooling.

powder room Floor to Ceiling Mosaic Tile Makes Powerful StatementJessica at has put together a powder room with some serious style. The highlight of the room is the floor to ceiling mosaic tile wall that serves as a backdrop to the simple yet refined dark wood vanity, vessel countertop sink, and wall mount faucet.

This is classy, folks. Reminds me of something you’d see in a Kohler commercial. The impact of those thousands of tiny little tiles is quite remarkable and after seeing this photo I had the urge to run out and buy some of that marvelous wall confetti, but upon realizing I had nowhere to put it in my current home I fell to the floor in a rumpled, weeping mess only to vow that once we moved into our new home the glorious mosaic wall shall be mine.

Oh yes, it shall be mine.

bathroom after1 House Blog Highlight: Tuscan Bathroom RemodelJust wanted to quickly point out this bathroom remodel I stumbled on today as I was reading a bit of the Our Pemberley blog. It’s not authentic Craftsman style but I would have no problem having this style of bathroom in our dream home. It’s too bad the owners are now selling the home they’ve put so much work into. I’m sure it’ll be difficult to say goodbye.
