That time I stood in a covered bridge for a photo and a car came by and I had to stand there like a dummy while they drove by 😂
John Lippert, Painting Conservator, restoring panels in the La Loggia bedroom. . When the panels were first painted, gesso was applied to the wood to hide the grain. It was thick, but soft and vapor permeable. Later, perhaps in the 1930s when the room was installed at the Rosen House, latex paint was applied over it and eventually caused flaking and cracking. Conservators are sanding and scraping the paint, and then will seal the wood with shellac before priming and painting with pale blue and washing with a deeper sage green that was original to the room in the 18th century. .

Useful overview raising so many questions. Hurry up, FBI!

The interior of the main branch of the #longbeachpubliclibary is infused with natural light thanks to clerestory windows and two-story light wells that help illuminate spaces below grade.  The main branch of the Long Beach Public Library will close this Saturday, January 19th and move into a new building later this year.  The current library is a part of a distinctive late Modern complex, completed in 1978, by a consortium of Long Beach's most notable 20th century architects: Gibbs & Gibbs; Killingsworth, Brady, & Associates; Kenneth Wing; and Frank Homolka. It also included a rooftop garden by internationally-renowned landscape architect Peter Walker. An art museum by I.M. Pei, was designed, but never realized.  Despite advocacy efforts and the exploration of preservation alternatives, the entire Civic Center complex is entering the final phases of demolition and complete replacement. This is a difficult loss for many locally and those around the globe who value late Modern resources and their place within our architectural history.  Thanks to architectural photographer Wayne Thom for capturing the library shortly after its completion. More photos of the Civic Center and Mr. Thom's work are available through the Wayne Thom Photography Collection at USC Libraries.

Okay, I wasn’t going to do this, because I don’t think y’all deserve it, but #thnoc’s social media team insists that I do the #agingchallenge. I’m the Merieult House, and this is me now and me back in the 1930s. I was built back in 1792, which means I’m a lot wiser than all of you, so listen up. I’m a Creole townhouse, and I can still remember when Royal Street street was called Calle Real and the ten seconds that the French Quarter was actually French (their first crack at governing Louisiana was before my time, but the Ursuline Convent tells me it was kind of a dumpster fire). I’m lucky enough to still be here thanks to the people at The Historic New Orleans Collection who keep me young (I’m a sucker for an afternoon glass of Champagne). Despite my trepidation toward humanity in general, I’m free and open to the public six days a week where I spend my time among my friends (paintings, objects, and documents) from back in the day. Come visit, but be gentle. #historicpreservation #vieuxcarre #visitthnoc

Time for some hardware porn! Look at these beauties and tell me you are not drooling! They belong to a closet door...a door that is most definitely in the wrong place, and in the wrong closet 🙄 but it will eventually be made right once again...For some reason someone in the past decided they wanted a new closet. To accomplish that they moved a radiator, blocked a window, altered the entire layout of the room, compromised the structural integrity of the house, and ignored the already functional closet, but what do I know, right? 🤷‍♀️ . . #vintagehomes #oldhouse #oldhouselove #antiques #olddoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldwindows #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram #househistory #ourhouse
The salon at #riversdalemansion sure has improved in the last 10 years (if we do say so ourselves 😆). Check out that exposed brick, white paint, and colorful cornice/frieze situation! Plus, this photo documents a pilaster restoration.

A spectacular winter day at the Old Chapel in Millwood, VA. The churchyard dates to the early 18th century, but the current building was constructed in 1793. The original log church burned during the Revolutionary War.  #preservation #history #wandering #va #backroads #historicpreservation
Architectural disrobing. The era of the Tin Man is over hopefully for this Bushwick Avenue beauty, though I have low expectations for what the owner will do with it.

If we could only remember that the view from the top cannot be seen from the bottom. . Last night I tossed a lasagna in the oven for supper. I am going to say I prepared it because my thirteen year old decided to inform me that “preparing” is different than “making”. . . Needless to say I walked away from the dinner table. After I stopped feeling frustrated and furious, I thought about how the word “prepare” had already been on my heart. The word preparation means to plan, care for, and make ready. You might remember last week’s post about “make ready” vs “be ready”. Well he was right. I was making ready my family’s meal. I was preparing the experience of dinner. I was preparing an environment of community. . . My furious mind softened when I realized that the word “made” is linked to create. The mother who created lasagna no longer resides on planet earth. This last thought was extremely satisfying. . . So I sat back laughing, and gave my child an etymology lesson. Do you ever feel like mothering is a constant uphill climb? You can’t really see the beauty until you’ve reached the top. I was flipping through photos and realized that you can’t get this beautiful view when standing at the bottom of the stairs. The angles, shadows, woodgrain, placement. None of it can be seen very clearly. . . So Moms, toss that lasagna in the oven, and shut the door on your guilt. We can’t see the other side of that melted crayon in our wash load right now, but one day we will. We’ll reach the top, look down and only see beauty. . . #naturallight #historicpreservation #homerestoration #thisoldhouse #oldhomelove #stair #staircase #motherhood #moderncraftsman #craftsman #dutchcolonial #shadows #mothehood #candidmotherhood #candidmother #mothercare #motherofteens #motherofmany #bigfamily
