Homeowner Lisa Brault designed the dining room lighting fixture for her 1911 Craftsman house after seeing something similar on a previous Pasadena Heritage Craftsman Tour.  The dining room table is a Stickley knockoff she found at a furniture outlet for $650 (including chairs).

Craftsman resources include Pasadena woodworker Mike Devlin, Pasadena Architectural Salvage, Liz’s Antique Hardware and the Rose Bowl Flea Market. “If I can’t find a replacement, I have had things rebuilt,” says homeowner Lisa Brault. “For example, I could not find a floor register in the right size, so I took the old one to Alberto’s Polish and Refinishing and they totally rebuilt it.”

In the living room in the Braults’ home, comfortable furnishings mix with family heirlooms and a pair of Stickley chairs from the Rose Bowl Flea Market. “My house is not a museum,” says Lisa Brault. “We have two dogs and a kid. This is a livable Craftsman."

The Braults recently hosted 100 people for their niece’s wedding at their 1911 Craftsman home. “I feel like if you have a big house, you should utilize it,” Lisa Brault says.
