Traditional Home Decor

sunset11The traditional design style for homes can sometimes be confused with “old”.  But really, it’s a classic style that focuses on beautiful details, ornate craftsmanship and rich, warm colors.  A favorite element of the traditional style that is often incorporated into home renovations are corbels. A corbel is an architectural bracket made of wood, plastic, marble, or other materials.  Its purpose is to support a ceiling, shelf, or beam on either the interior or exterior of a home.  However, sometimes its sole purpose is simply a decoration for homeowners that like the embellishment corbels add to a space, but functionally have no need for it.

If you are planning to remodel your home, you can set up a time with one of our talented Normandy Designers to talk about the possibilities. You can also learn more about additions, kitchens, or other remodeling projects at an upcoming workshop. Check out the photo gallery or follow Normandy Remodeling on  Facebook and Instagram for even more home tips and inspiration.

Victorian Home Restoration Ideas

The Victorian Era was a time when homeowners were completely preoccupied with the details and colors of a home.  Roof crestings really soared during this period, which is the architectural detail on the very top of the roof pictured.  Often times during a Victorian home renovation, roof crestings are considered the finishing touch to really give a home an authentic Victorian aesthetic.  They’re purely decorative and usually made out of wrought iron; homeowners opt to incorporate them solely on a preferential basis.

This Victorian restoration and addition were created by Normandy Design Manager, Troy Pavelka.  Have his expertise applied to your upcoming project by scheduling a complimentary, in-home consultation with him today!  Or for more Victorian inspiration, check out the full story and photos of this beautiful project!
