    I have some Arts and Crafts style houses in my Strava, but these Arts and Crafts projects were cuter.

    Default 3/16/22 Arts and Crafts

    I found this confusing. This article uses the terms Arts and Crafts and Craftsman interchangeably, so I found a house mentioned.

    https://patch.com/virginia/vienna/vi...uilding-boom-0

    “Craftsman is a term given to homes largely built between 1905 and the early 1920s, Ted Bosley, director of the Gamble House, a National Historic Landmark in Pasadena, Calif., recently told The Wall Street Journal in its article. The Gamble House is considered a prime example of craftsman architecture

    It's a design style that's so popular it has at least two magazines devoted to the subject, Arts & Crafts Homes and American Bungalow Magazine. Each year, the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. holds an Arts & Crafts Conference.”


    Another article:

    https://exhibitions.lib.umd.edu/will...rafts-movement

    “William Morris believed people should be surrounded by beautiful, well-made things. This vision inspired the emergence of the Arts and Crafts movement in the 1860s. Morris's lectures and essays on art and his rediscovery of traditional craft techniques helped spread the movement, as did the decorative designs and products from his company: Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co.

    As a diverse international movement, Arts and Crafts encompassed many characteristics. There was no single manifesto and no one style to which it adhered. Several Arts& Crafts guilds, organizations, and schools helped fuel the movement.

    The core characteristics of the Arts and Crafts movement are a belief in craftsmanship which stresses the inherent beauty of the material, the importance of nature as inspiration, and the value of simplicity, utility, and beauty. The movement often promoted reform as part of its philosophy and advanced the idea of the designer as craftsman.

    Image: The entrance hall at Wightwick Manor incorporated many Art and Crafts elements including Morris designed fabric on the wing chair.”




    405 Nutley St., SW in Vienna is for sale for $1,349,000. See more about the home on Zillow.com.

    3-16 Arts & Crafts

    Arts & Crafts are also quite popular around Denver. You can see rows and rows of bungalow homes in some neighborhoods. Nothing really stands out & catches my eye like Mid Mod though. Took plenty of pics today, but no obvious, most memorable one. Decided on this final one I found on my ride; an updated Craftsman with nice colors and elephantine columns on the entry porch. The snow & trailer in the front went well with home and surrounding trees.
