Houses come in many styles, sizes and colors. I have always loved the art of architecture, especially the mechanical drawings that were needed for the final result. There is just something about how an object is built that gets me excited. To see a house come alive and be turned into a home is such a cool thing as well.
I have learned about many styles of architecture in art school but there are some that stand out among the rest. Colonial is my ultimate favorite. With its simple ideas and symmetrical design, colonial style feels like home to me. I guess I love that back in the day feel even though it was way before my time. The materials used are also of interest as well as certain ways they dressed up the homes.
Then there is Victorian, Cottage and Arts and Crafts style, which are all on top of my list as well. Mid Century design is a major love. Streamlined and functional with a mod feel sounds great to me. There are just so many awesome styles to choose from!
