What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

What Style Is That?


Just because it’s part of my homework, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with it!

You may have noticed that my posts have been on the short side lately. That’s because I’m studying for my real estate exam; I’m gearing up to be an agent in NYC! While I’m studying not-so-fun topics like contracts and property taxes, I’ve also been brushing up on my house and style knowledge. Which brings me to today’s find, an Instagram account Called What Style Is That? Their illustrations and descriptions have been immensely helpful to me, and I thought you might get a kick out of them, too!

The site is run by architectural historian and middle school educator Karyn Norwood.

“I started this insta because I love teaching and old architecture. I have a M.S. in Historic Preservation and stay active in HP as the president of @preservation_burlington and as a member of my city’s design advisory board and HP commission. I spend most of my time teaching middle school social studies though, which I love as much as houses.”

You can follow What Style Is That? on their Instagram and on Pinterest.

  3. I loved this! A fellow blogger sometimes posts these terms and I have to look them up. Seeing them ‘in person’ is so much more helpful than just reading about them. Good luck on the test!!

  4. I was born in 1940 and grew up in St. Louis MO, USA. Moved out in 1963. I still miss St. Louis today. I go back and visit when I can. There are still the old sections of St. Louis with the old houses. They don’t build like that today. I suggest that Donna take a look at the Winchester house in San Jose, CA. I did visit and toured that house. I am about as far north as I want to be here in Citra FL. Leaving this coming Saturday for Memphis and my family for Thanksgiving. Hal
