The author looks at doors and windows, halls and staircases, cornices and ceiligs. Together with the facade and the garden, these rooms are examined in terms of how they would have been then, and how that look can be recreated now by using a combination of contemporary artefacts and modern reproduction furniture and fittings. This material helps shed light on the many artistic influences on Victorian style, and provides a pictorial social history of domestic life at the end of the 19th century. Whether you wish to restore a period Victorian house, or simply recreate the intimate splendour of the period, this comprehensive book will show you how. Taking into account the requirements of the modern-day home, this book offers both practical advice and inspiration which will enable you to strike your own balance between Victorian style and twentieth-century living.. Drawing on original catalogue material, Victorian House Style features many specially commissioned colour photographs of modern 'Victorian' interiors. After looking at the development of the Victorian house and the main architectural styles that evolved, further chapters examine the design potential of the various structural features.
