BedroomsBook - 2003
For many fledgling families and modest wage earners of the early twentieth century, the American dream of home ownership came true in the form of a bungalow. Smaller and plainer than Victorian houses, bungalows combined affordability with the aesthetic sensibilities of the Arts and Crafts movement. They were also quite versatile, particularly with regard to their bedrooms. Open-air sleeping porches and space-saving "built-ins" allowed bungalow owners to convert unfinished or underutilized areas of the house into sleeping quarters. Trimmed with distinctive woodwork and decorated with wallpaper or stenciling, colorful textiles, and other handicrafts, bungalow bedrooms were cozy retreats. By Paul Duchscherer and Douglas Keister.
