Showcasing Aged Architectural House Drawings

Showcasing Aged Architectural House Drawings

While going through some of the closets here at our Maine home, I uncovered the architectural house drawings that my parents originally created back in 1992.  To say I was thrilled was an understatement!  And the architectural drawings were in such great shape too, folded and kept within a small metal filing cabinet.

 

I immediately knew that I wanted to frame one, if not all of them, and hang them throughout the home.  Today I want to share the first one, that I framed myself, with an old frame that I simply found in the attic.  I hope you enjoy this repurposed nostalgic touch to this old family home!

 

 

If you are new here,  this coastal Maine home is a replica of an Early American home called a Raeside & Dame.  The home was designed and built by my parents back in 1992 and we inherited the home this past fall. We have been both renovating and redecorating it to make it our own.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hung the framed architectural drawing in our dining room, which is also the entryway to the home.

 

 

 

 

After hanging the architectural drawing, I found a small watercolor painting of the house my parent's owned before building this Raeside-Dame home.  A painting I had made for them and gifted sometime back when I was in college.  I always thought it was funny, as this home was on the ocean and the painter added evergreen trees...  I luv the juxtaposition of the two homes side by side.

 

 

 

 

PIN THESE IDEAS FOR LATER!

 

 

This home right now is a complete work in progress, as we wait on furniture and stores to reopen!

We are so excited to make this home comfortable for friends and family to enjoy.

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
