Old House Journal May 2019

Old House Journal magazine's May 2019 issue.

For over 40 years, Old House Journal has been helping people repair, rehabilitate, update, and decorate their homes in classic style. We cover every American architectural style—from the earliest colonial-era buildings to mid-century ranches—and the wealth of Victorians and bungalows in between.

Some stories featured in Old House Journal magazine:

Scenic Wallpaper
Hand-painted and wood block-printed wallpapers surround us with historical scenes, both real and imagined, or they can bring the panoramic outdoors to rooms inside. Cycling in and out of fashion since the 17th century, scenic wallpapers are on the rise again. Options run from traditional, almost three-dimensional views in brilliant color to quiet grisailles, modern interpretations, and friezes.

A Restored 1920s Arts & Crafts Bungalow
Facing tilted porch piers and baby-blue woodwork, a smitten owner brings the Arts & Crafts aesthetic to a 1921 bungalow in Seattle.

A Prairie Foursquare in Memphis
The 1903 house in Memphis, Tennessee, is a boldly detailed example of the Midwest Prairie School genre on the familiar foursquare type. The well-preserved house never looked better than now.
