Summary

Summary

Because the living room was the space visitors first encountered when entering the bungalow, the area was given the highest priority and had the biggest budget of any room. Typically the most spacious room in the house, the living room was also invariably the most beautiful. It was here that you would most likely find those features that epitomize classic Craftsman design: exposed beams and structural elements, superbly (and cleverly) crafted built-in furniture, and the prominent use of natural or rustic materials, often obtained locally, such as wood, stone, tile, and hammered copper. Bungalow residents enhanced and personalized the setting with Arts and Crafts-style wall coverings, lighting, and furniture, along with handcrafted textiles and pottery.
