A Primer on Greene & Greene and their Elements of Style

One of my favorite books!
As we build our home in the style of Greene and Greene, we find ourselves explaining to friends the various elements that will define our home, it is quite unusual yet beautiful.  If you have lived in Pasadena then you know the do most architects.  But in this time of Pinterest and many new people are being introduced to the Craftsman style and Greene and Greene in particular. Once you have been bitten you want more information, more pictures, more ideas on how to do the kitchens and baths that fit today's lifestyles without abandoning the essence of a G & G home. 

With this post I will give you a brief synopsis of the Greene brothers work, their elements of style, and what lies ahead on our project this year.
