Arts and Crafts Architecture and Home Design

Simplicity, Utility and Beauty Are The Primary Characteristics Of The Arts And Crafts Movement

The Arts and Crafts movement began in Europe in the late 1800’s and gained popularity in the United States at the turn of the 20th century. The term ‘Arts and Crafts’ refers not to one particular style, but rather a specific approach to interior and exterior design. It is based on the idea of high-quality craftsmanship coupled with a more functional and less formal type of architecture than was fashionable during the Victorian era. Arts and Crafts design emphasizes natural, organic beauty by using materials such as wood, stone and brick.

Today’s Arts and Crafts style homes tend to blend traditional elements of the movement while embracing more modern, spacious floor plans and updated color palettes. For instance, great rooms that open to large kitchens are now the norm, and lighter-colored painted wood is replacing darker stained wood. The melding of simple, clean lines with up-to-date design allows for many interpretations of the Arts and Crafts aesthetic.
