Bungalow-era rooms have been described as plain, but they are warm and fully decorated.
Wallpaper remained popular during the Arts & Crafts period. Gone was the multi-patterned, tripartite treatment (dado, fill, frieze) of the Victorian era.
Treatments now included panelized walls—with embossed wallcovering, paper, burlap, or stencil designs between moldings or battens. Most popular was the embellished frieze, placed in the area at the top of the wall just under the ceiling. Pendant designs, landscapes, and stylized florals all were common.
By modern standards, interiors were fully decorated, with woodwork, paint, pillows, and rugs adding to the cozy effect. For your home, consider finishing treatments, as well as contemporary textiles that add color, pattern, and warmth to Arts & Crafts rooms.
