Tiny house, big style. This home proves that some of the smallest spaces can make the biggest impact, in curb appeal and beyond.

House Tour: Historical Concepts

House Tour: Historical Concepts

Trust us, there’s nothing we love better than an old house. (We have the houses to prove it.) But, well, historical homes come with their fair share of, let’s say, issues.

So we love the idea of the new old house. You know the kind. It looks like an old house, but is built brand new, i.e., you probably won’t have to have a handyman on payroll.

That look can be very, very tricky to achieve, as adding that character isn’t something just anyone can pull off.

But we think Historical Concepts does the old new house better than pretty much anyone in the business, building new houses that ooze old world charm.

It is the little things that turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, like these beautiful blue doors. 

And unexpected elements–like this unique ceiling–set this kitchen apart from the pack. 

Beautiful windows with lots of light and a marble farmhouse sink make a stunning statement. 

Talk about a dream pantry! Wow! And we couldn’t love this library ladder any more. 

This wood paneling adds so much charm to an other basic stairwell.

And a barrel ceiling makes this hallway an experience. 

Bold navy blue trim adds an instant nautical feel–and these beds are so chic!

Every space feels like an occasion with Historical Concepts. 

But–no surprises here–we think we might love the outdoor spaces most of all!

What is your favorite way to make a new house feel old? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

House Tour: Madison, Georgia

4

When we think of Madison, Georgia, this home is what comes to mind. Or something like it. White, stately, columned, and, obviously, with a porch big enough for sitting all summer long. From the perfectly orchestrated interiors to the sprawling landscape, this is a home that makes you pause, take a breath, and say, “Wow!” But don’t take our word for it. Have a look around, take a seat and stay awhile. After all, this is the South y’all.
