Designs from the Past

Posted on: October 18, 2010

It seems that I have a plethora of historical designed based posts lately but it is a very important topic when learning the interior design field. We all must learn and grow from the best to create a better and more beautiful future. I recently came across a blog called Antique Homes. This blog shares a very nice history of home designs from 1900 to Mid-century. They do a great job explaining each of these periods and then they have scanned in plans from all of the major home manufacturers from this time. It is a great time capsule that is open for everyone to see. I encourage everyone to view this site and learn more about the homes of the past that are popular again.
