Modern+Victorian

6/07/2011






Don't you ladies love old Victorian houses? I love the nooks and crannies, the built in shelves,  bookcases and all of the lovely wood. The question is: how do you decorate? Often times I think it's easy to clutter up a Victorian, making the space feel old and cramped. I love what Sheila Bridges did with this Manhattan townhouse.

Love the mix of the different design styles. I think my favorite part about this is the bathroom with the striped wall paper. It's just so unique. Nice post!

One of my favorite mixes. My bedroom is definitely modern victorian updated with those lucite victorian kartel lamps + a little Hollywood regency thrown in too. I adore the look and will definitely hop over to check out the rest of the photos!

That is my favourite juxtapostion of styles. When we lived in London I saw it done so wonderfully, loads of lucite in very grand tall rooms, really cool. Victorians also take colour so well. The blue is wonderful
