Resources for Period Accurate Decorating
December 26, 2013 7:43 PM Subscribe
I own a 1931 Arts & Crafts style house in Seattle, and am looking for resources to help me give it some "period accurate" accents. (For example, my foyer houses a working, refurbished phone
from the 1930's).

The kitchen has been redone in a more 'modern' style, but the rest of the house is mostly untouched - original doors, built-ins, bay window, etc. I'd like to find resources for period accurate stylings around light fixtures (indoors and out), fireplaces/mantels, etc.
Specifically I'm interested in both photographs of Arts & Crafts/Craftsman houses from the 1930's as well as recommendations on where/how to acquire either antique or reproduced items.
Any and all suggestions welcome - I'm hoping to find ideas as well as resources.
