York, PA: Mansions, Movements & Peppermint Patties

“You Should Move To…” is a new column in which Lindsay travels the country scoping out beautiful, under-the-radar old house towns where big charm can be had for little cost. Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to!   If you live in a big city then I’m sure that you, like me, have spent hours daydreaming of a quieter life where your rent or mortgage buys you not just substantial indoor space, but some outdoor space too (and maybe even a laundry room). But if, like me, you are also slightly frightened by the slow pace of small town life, then you snap yourself right out of those daydreams and carry on with the hustle and bustle of city life, pushing calm and quiet out in favour of culture, convenience,

Mid Century Modern Interior Design | Megan Draper, Trudy Campbell & Post-War Park Avenue

Pete & Trudy Campbell’s fictional apartment at 83rd Street & Park Avenue.    I felt violated the first time Netflix made personalized recommendations based on my so called “taste profile.” Well, perhaps more embarrassed than violated. Apparently after watching weeks of dramas set in the English countryside, Netflix felt confident in recommending a stream of “20th Century Period Pieces Featuring a Strong Female Lead.” It was oddly specific, and yet sadly true. I will watch literally anything set in an English country house. After all, I watched the entirety of the last season of Downton Abbey just for the sweeping shots of Highclere Castle.   In reality, my “taste profile” extends beyond dramas set around neo-Palladian piles in Worcestershire. As a student of architectural history, I am particularly interested in the history of interiors, and what I look

Ernest Hemingway’s Key West Estate

If you play our Mystery Monday game over on Facebook, you may have recognized today’s photo as the Ernest Hemingway House at 907 Whitehead Street in Old Town Key West. Long on my wish list, I finally got to see this house up close and personal earlier this year. I guess it’s safe to say I’m just a teensy-weensy bit obsessed with the 1930s. It was pouring rain that day, and my poor husband had to practically pin me down to restrain me from going crazy over the knowledge that I wouldn’t get to see the gardens.   Well, I’m not that crazy. I mean, just LOOK at this house! Ah! It’s my dream. come. true. Built from limestone found directly beneath the structure in 1851 for a ship’s architect & captain, the house was occupied

Robert Searcy: A Houston Realtor with an Eye for Swank

Images of the Glenbrook Valley neighborhood in Houston, courtesy Doing what I do, I get to know a LOT of realtors, and let me tell you: very few out there are like Robert Searcy. It was through Robert that I first became aware of Glenbrook Valley, a near-perfectly preserved example of 1950s/60s Americana that recently became Houston’s first mid-century historic district and was named one of This Old House‘s Top Old House Neighborhoods for 2013. Today, Robert’s name is practically synonymous with Glenbrook Valley, but that’s what happens when you create an entire website devoted to the history of a place.   I just LOVE to see realtors take a hands-on role in the preservation of their neighborhoods! Seriously, why can’t every one be this amazing? Read on for more on
