Want to make the amazing architecture stand out? Something’s got to give. Overly ornate décor will detract from the spectacular craftsmanship lovingly built into the interior of your home. Avoid large patterns on wallpaper and the color of your walls. Encourage those admiring it to focus on the trim, coffered ceiling, cabinetry and other touches that make your home so special.

Study up on the specific architectural detail of your home. If your historic property is listed on a local, state or national treasury, ask for a copy of the description as it could give you some clues about the period in which your home was built. 

Following are some websites that might be helpful to you in identifying period-style trim that help make your home stand out:

Digital Library for the Decorative Arts and Material Culture

Architecture Timeline - Western Influences on Building Design

Realtor Magazine - Guide to Residential Styles

Every home has a story. Why not share the story of yours?
