Decorating ideas for a house in Craftsman style
Most people love the Craftsman style! Do you belong to this group too? There is something inviting and warm in these apartments. They testify to simplicity and the preference for the building materials.
Such design solutions emerged shortly after the beginning of the 20th century.
They are characterized by many distinctive features. These include the tapered columns, the linear window details, the frontal doors and the open rafters under the eaves.
Today we take a quick look at a craftman house and look at the various options for decorating such homes. Some of today's houses are newly built and others older. The first ones were built in craftman style from the beginning and the others were redesigned into them.

Let's take a look at the dining room. This beautifully manicured room is given its craftman character by a few delightful elements. Among them, the ceiling lighting and the yellow, green and brown combinations are particularly striking. Flower vases are also typical of the Craftmans interior design. Did you notice the Art Nouveau piece in the lower right corner? He seems to come from the ceiling decorated with plant elements or not?
The following light gray dining area is a bit more modern. The whole thing is complemented by a decorative strip. Did you see this? Among other things, the room owes its distinctly modern appearance to the bright nuances and cool shades. [according to Denoxa]
Within this modern context, we also want to introduce the pendant lighting below. Wall murals and a collection of vases bring this space to an above-average level. The mix of warm and cool shades ensures harmony. [according to Sarah Greenman]
If you have paid attention, you will recognize the room below! This is the refurbished dining area of the same old kitchen from Apartment Therapy. Did we mention the year of origin? The house was built in 1912 and its decor consists of contemporary and vintage treasures. The dining room is no exception.

The most beautiful one always leaves for the end! We did that too. Because the Craftmans bedrooms are in pure harmony dipped rooms. Traditionally, we look at the "shell" of this first, and then the exterior design of the house itself.
Sometimes the simple and clean way of designing is the best. Wooden furniture occupies a central position in the room below. Also charming is the combination of these with the beige-colored walls on both sides.

The last picture shows the strong influence of modern floral arrangements in Craftmans designs. If the style statements are strong enough due to the clear linear details, one can easily insert some contemporary elements. That can happen even at the front door.
