About Period Homes Magazine

PeriodHomes Jan 2017 Cover

Period Homes magazine speaks to the traditional design trade exclusively working on authentic well-designed houses on a national scale. Read by architects, contractors, developers, artisans, and interior designers, it is the go-to resource for information on traditional materials, design practices, regional projects, and company profiles.

Articles highlight new traditional design, landscapes, restoration, renovation, adaptive re-use, and sympathetic designs for traditional residential architecture. Product guides, articles, and photo galleries provide the latest information on how to specify and locate historically inspired products such as windows, doors, lighting, columns, hardware and related services.

Leading architects discuss how to restore and rehabilitate historic homes and how to design new ones in traditional styles. No other magazine/website offers this type of comprehensive information.


Often written by experts in the field, Period Homes' Features focus on a variety of issues, such as sustainability and urban design.


Leading residential architects working in a classical design style are often featured in our pages.


The only national awards program honoring traditional architecture, the Palladio Awards were launched in 2002 and have cited more than 100 projects for their exceptional design. Categories include both restoration and renovation and new traditional design. These are selected by a jury of architects, educators and designers and are featured each year in our July issues.

Product Reports:

Our product reports provide guidelines and information to help architects, designers and builders with their projects. A typical product report, “Beyond the Surface” discusses how plaster meets and exceeds the demands of today’s construction market.

Buying Guides:

Products are the lifeblood of any restoration or renovation project, and Period Homes is the only source of information on traditional products and services–products such as hardware, lighting, columns, decorative painting and window restoration. Every issue includes at least a dozen of these Buying Guides.

Book Reviews:

With each issue, Period Homes offers up reviews of the latest books on traditional design and architecture. We have a diverse stable of book reviewers, including architects, tradespeople, scholars, and industry professionals.

The last page of each issue offers an opportunity for industry leaders to express their opinions on the latest innovations and attitudes about traditional residential design. For example, Peter H. Miller discusses The New Preservationists.

Our Special issues:

The January issue is our Annual Buying Guide, featuring a comprehensive listing of traditional products in dozens of categories. This valuable resource is used as a reference all year long.

In July, we feature the Palladio winners, with detailed articles about the winning projects and exclusive interviews with the architects.
