Hip And Historical
Have you seen any hip or historical homes or home design elements lately? We have -- and we're sharing them here with you! Here are some of our favorite retro home design and decor ideas.
Vern Yip’s dining room design includes an intricately designed wall covering consisting of wood veneer paneling with a scroll inlay pattern. From a distance you’d think the wall was covered in silk material. It’s creative yet simple.
Curly pine wood paneling, twin fireplaces made of fieldstone, hand-hewn solid oak timber joists. Those are just a few of the extraordinary building materials in use in The Willcox lobby. Old world craftsmanship and attention to detail are two outstanding characteristics of this historic building.
The Willcox is an historic hotel located in the heart of thoroughbred country in Aiken, South Carolina. Character abounds in this freshly restored and renovated high-end hotel and resort/spa.
The Clayton Homes i-House is one of the latest prefab homes for consumers to choose from in an already crowded housing market. The difference here is all of the great green features that the i-house has to offer the buyer.

I accidentally stayed at a haunted Inn a few years back and came away unscathed. I just needed to stay somewhere in the Newark, Ohio area that was a little off the beaten path.
