n: an account of the qualities or peculiarities of a person or thing.
I have a love for character homes, or older homes. They hold so much history and tend to have unique details that you just don't generally find in today's homes. I suppose character is in the eye of the beholder, but to me when I think of what gives a home character I immediately think of the following
Great large moldings, anywhere, and with lots or minimal detailing. I dream of moldings, of 5" baseboards and 6" crowns. These are things that my home, although older, doesn't have and I plan to do this...some day. I seriously drool over homes with great moldings!
I love the detail in every nook and cranny of this space. Look at all of that trim work on the walls!
This room makes me speechless.
check out that amazing display of plates!
... or built-in bookcases and a window seat
History or a illusion of history...
