Wartime Design

There is never much talk about the benefits of homes built in the 1940s. Typically revival style, whether Georgian like this one, or colonial, this era of house does not draw much attention from the street. Walk through the doors, and you find yourself in a perfect family sized space with well proportioned rooms, a sensible layout and good bones. 
This house, outside of Charleston, was featured in Charleston Home Magazine, with interiors by Angie Hranowsky. Although the layout of the house is sensible and proportionate, as mentioned above, the decorating helps to add some interest and fun to this young family’s 1940s Georgian Revival. I especially love the Manuel Canovas wallpaper in the kitchen! What do you think?
