Curiositites


This house really caught my attention. A mixture of old-world and industrial styles makes this 1860s Maryland home look like it might have been a setting for a Pottery Barn photo shoot. I love the crown moldings and architectural details throughout this space. It really gives off the whole old-world science, natural history, and library vibe all in one.

Its such an amazing house indeed, I love the old building to the new modern ones for all the detail that went into them... not many people have the skills to do most of those things these days.
