Sample text

We used it on several kitchen and bathroom countertops over several years, and I was sad when we used the last of it. (One can use new galvanized sheets of tin and help advance the patina with some watered-down muriatic [hydrochloric] acid. Experiment with the solution first. ) I have seen kitchens that have the incredible appearance of being over 200 years old, yet include state-of-the-art modern conveniences. Those that I am most familiar with are the work of David T. Smith. Those who are familiar with my books know that David is my hero when it comes to designing kitchens.

One of the things I enjoy most about historical homes is their quirkiness. I’ve seen spaces that seemed to be insurmountable quandaries transition into favorite rooms. New construction often does not force this type of creativity, so often doesn’t display the wonderful results. Whatever you determine your focal point to be, I would suggest the avoidance of the modern curse to excellent home design—the television. I’m not suggesting you go without; just recommending that you avoid the pitfall so common to the homes of today, in which the TV inadvertently becomes the main focal point of the living room (as an aside, some of my favorite examples of reproduction cabinetry have been fashioned to hide the TV).

In the living or keeping room, one could see green window trim, a black and mustard checkered fabric on the chairs, and a red cupboard hiding the television set. Variation is relatively easy to add when needed: a blue pantry box or wooden bucket, a multicolored old quilt over the back of a chair, or an antique sign in colors other than those in the limited palette. Another example might be drywall, a building material that often borders on too much repetition, but is definitely an effective unifying element.
