An Arts & Crafts style home is distinguished as much by its friendly comfortable atmosphere as it is by its architecture, furniture and other objects.

We create textiles in techniques as used at the turn-of-the-century; applique, hand embroidery, and hand stencilling. Embroideries are available completed or as kits.

Gustav Stickley likened the desired effect of a well designed room to the experience of nature;
"...plan and arrange the room that the sense of space and freedom is always felt, and so to preserve the relation between the natural background of the walls and floor and the more prominent furnishings in the room that each part is given its own value and falls into its own place as naturally and inevitably as the trees, hills, valleys and brooks combine in the harmonious relationship that makes a beautiful landscape."
