The Victorian House Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The homes built during the Victorian period are appreciated for their architecture, romantic interiors, and their often whimsical details. With a host of Victoriana this ample volume is an essential guide to this rich, eclectic, and arguably most popular American house style. Historical information is combined with design ideas and advice on how to decorate, renovate and maintain a Victorian house. Whether you live in a Victorian or just want to create the look and feel of one in your own home, this book is full of inspiring ideas, organized in a stepbystep, roombyroom fashion. The proper fixtures, fittings, colors, finishes, and furniture styles are discussed and construction features are highlighted. Also included are a trouble shooting guide for maintenance and a source directory.

Historical information is combined with design ideas and advice on how to decorate, renovate, and maintain a vintage home. But the pictures are the important thing--400 illustrations, 300 in color. No bibliography.
