Decorating for the History Enthusiast

Your home should be a haven for your family and friends, a place of peace and rest where you can gather your thoughts, rejuvenate from your work day, and create memories with your loved ones. Additionally, your home will always play a special part in you and your children's memories. Indeed, many of us can probably recall with fondness the aged leather scent from our father's library, or the aromas of a sun-filled kitchen as our mother baked cookies after school, or the crackling fire in our den at the holidays. There was something magical about that hiding spot in the drawing room where we played with dolls, or the windowseat where we sat as teenagers dreaming of days to come. A house is much more than just the bricks and mortar that make up the structure, but it is the physical expression of who we are. For the history enthusiast, home decorating can be a marvelous expression of your love for history's most elegant eras. Read our articles about decorating styles and ideas for each room of your home.
