Exterior Architectural Elements


They may say everything old is new again but if this is true why do the new homes being built today have no sense of design element other than an over use or poor use of faux stone or phony dormers and generic windows and doors?  Believe it or not but I LOVE historic architecture.  When I go to NYC, London, West Virginia, Washington D.C., Palm Beach or even home to Harbor Springs my insides get all gooey over the architectural details on old homes.   I’ll share this visual feast of eye candy.Santa Fe, New Mexico
