After the pomp and circumstance of the Victorian age, it's no wonder homeowners fell in love with earthy Arts & Crafts houses
with rugged stone walls, wood beams, and hand-crafted details. But isn't it curious that this down-to-earth style began with the writings of John Ruskin
, who championed lofty Gothic Revival
architecture? Ruskin was born on February 8, 1819 in London, England.
