Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
So here's a classic Victorian Townhouse where they embraced and highlighted the detail and warm tones of the badass woodworking by adding some loud colors and vintage pieces. You just can't paint over molding detail like this. The richness and quality in the craftsmanship is just too tough to replicate.
The place just pops. There are times when the stain work can overpower but not in this case. The design team did a great job balancing all of the color tones from the wood to the vintage art pieces.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
