Looking at this home today, you would never know that the project began as a poorly maintained duplex. Luckily, the homeowners saw past the worn façade and engaged our team to uncover and update the Victorian gem that lay underneath. Taking special care to preserve the historical integrity of the 100-year-old floor plan, we returned the home back to its original glory as a grand, single family home. The project included many renovations, both small and large, including the addition of a a wraparound porch to bring the façade closer to the street, a gable with custom scrollwork to accent the new front door, and a more substantial balustrade. Windows were added to bring in more light and some interior walls were removed to open up the public spaces to accommodate the family’s lifestyle.

Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Eclectic bathroom: we had to organise the content of this bathroom in a lovely Victorian property. In accord with the client, we wanted to preserve the character of the building but not at the expense of creativity and a good dose of quirkiness.We there fore used a mix of pebble and wood flooring to create a lavish bath area - with a twist.

Victorian homes rose in popularity in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria, from the mid to late 19th century. The ornate style quickly spread worldwide and gained traction in the United States from 1860 to 1900. Victorian architecture is a broad category that encompasses several well-known styles, including Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire and Romanesque. A Victorian-style house has very distinct exterior traits — an asymmetrical two- or three-story shape, elaborate trim and moulding, vibrant color schemes, steep roofs, wraparound porches, and stained glass. On the inside, Victorian decor is just as regal, with floral patterns, intricate wallpaper, hand-carved furniture, velvet and lace details, luxurious chandeliers, dark woods, and warm, rich color schemes.
