Here in Philadelphia it seems like Winter was going to last forever but with Easter right around the corner, we're happy to spot a few cheerful window boxes and blooming trees! Wishing you and yours a very happy spring!
I'm constantly taking photos of row houses, many of which do not make it into proper articles. Below are row houses in the Greek Revival style. Homes like this were built during much of the early through mid-19th Century in just about every major city in the Eastern U.S.. This style was also very popular in … Continue reading Row House Sampler – Greek Revival Row Houses
We love Holiday decorations here at Row House and wanted to share some of the festive row house decorations we've seen this year.
I'm constantly taking photos of row houses, many of which do not make it into proper articles. Below are row houses in the Federal/Georgian style. Many are period homes from before 1825.

Below were some of our favorite haunts of the evening. This row house had a costume. I wish I had a better camera for these night shots but this homeowner turned their … Continue reading Halloween Is for Row Houses Too!
I will start with a disclaimer. There are no wrong ways to decorate a row house (interior) of any size as long as the occupants can roam about freely. Safety is always first. Tripping over things and getting hurt is bad. That being said, the sky, or roof in this case, is really the limit … Continue reading How to Decorate a Small Row House
