I love showing up at historic homes. I just pulled up to a 1913 colonial. I automatically picture homeowners in period Garb and playing appropriate roles as I approach the front door. Of course on the other side I just begin my job of hanging artwork - which is in and of itself always particular to the building.
The home has the four large fluted columns, the Royal blue door with the golden pineapple knocker, false balcony and a four chimneyed roof. The House sits just off a very historic road in a western suburb of Boston. My GPS has no idea how to handle the approach. But as we are off the street called Post Road it was appropriate to see a mailman in his vehicle circling through the property as if he was harkening back to horse drawn carriage deliveries.
I am waiting for the client to arrive and had to share the experience.
I will keep you posted...
