I grew up in an 18th century farmhouse, and we just went to Annapolis yesterday, so I was feeling inspired to look up some colonial interiors. Here are some gorgeous examples of colonial exteriors and colonial interiors. Some are authentic and others were renovated or new builds made to capture the colonial aesthetic.
I love this color palette. It’s quiet but rich at the same time. The wide plank flooring is also amazing.
A classic colonial home.
The wainscoting, wide plank floors are gorgeous in this Pennsylvania museum house.
An 18th century NJ farmhouse with a red dutch door. It was for sale last year but was snatched up pretty quickly.
This home along the Hudson was renovated. Reclaimed wood planks are the flooring, and hand-hewn beams with plaster fill in are the ceiling.
I think what’s so appealing to me about colonial interiors is that it harks back to simpler life. No cords, TVs, phones beeping, etc. I imagine that life was no piece of cake for early Americans though.
