Time Pieces

Eleanor Updale has a great point in this post, one I've discussed myself in the past.  Here I sit in a home furnished with chairs dating back generations - my grandmother's rocker, my dad's leather chair - looking at paintings and even photographs ranging across almost a century.

Not all artifacts in a scene written nor production-designed are anachronistic if they are out of period.  Only if they are post-period.  And a home designed without history does not look like human habitation ... it tells no story.
