Every Room is a Greeting Card from Hallmark Stylist Andy Newcom

Andy Newcom’s home is almost exactly what you’d expect from a Hallmark stylist – eccentric, lovely, and full of flourish.

The word ‘eclectic’ definitely comes to mind as we peruse this home tour. In Newcom’s house you’ll find Victorian-style antiques, unusual found objects, vivid artwork, and delightful touches of modern. Every shot is enriched with color and whimsy, much like the greeting cards Hallmark is famous for.

Lesser-Known Masters: Charles Goodman

Although he’s not renowned throughout the country, Charles Goodman’s designs are a matter of pride for residents of Virginia and Washington D.C. The architect pointedly ignored the colonial revival style that was wildly popular in mid-century Virginia, instead choosing to pursue his Modernist principles.

After designing many public buildings throughout D.C., Goodman went on to design the entire Hollin Hills community of modern homes, which remains a prestigious and much-sought-after neighborhood in the area.

Since those days, Goodman received over 10 national architectural awards, and 5 of his designs have been named National Historic Sites.

When Budget Building Goes Right

When local architect Kevin Oreck was given the opportunity to design a Los Angeles home on a tight budget and a tighter space constraint, he didn’t think twice. The result is a 1,500-square-foot home built out of metal and plywood on a 39-foot-wide lot, and it’s amazing.
