We have achieved a milestone: 100+ stories about time capsules in our time capsule archive! And, most of these stories are pretty “epic” — we have Thousands of photos of these homes! Once we get permission from agents and photographers, we are typically ‘greedy’ and show as many photos as they allow — we typically ignore professional advice to ‘optimize your website by keeping your stories short’ — and GO BIG whenever it makes sense.
Our goal: To archive all the delicious details in these homes, so that (1) we can carefully scrutinize all the details and perhaps use them for ideas for our own projects, and (2) to appreciate these houses forever-and-ever! With our time capsule selections we also work hard to showcase great variety, which demonstrates one of my key themes, that ‘There is More than One Way to Retro’ — and which gives all of us confidence to do our their own thing — to let our freak flags fly! When decorating is done with love, it’s all good.
This fabulous archive would not be possible without the many tips from readers. Thank you! And, keep those great tips — contact us any time via our Contact Form.
