Victorian Houses

Victorian Home

The Victorian style in American domestic architecture was never a clear-cut single design like the Colonial Cape Cod or the Greek Revival. Rather it was a lively medley of several styles blended into something distinctively American. It included the American Gothic with peaked gables, towers and profusion of carvings. Another style was the French Renaissance with mansard roofs and colored stonework. The English Tudor featured casement windows and half-timbered walls covered with stucco or shingles. Some 19th century houses might have all these showy features, plus some more ideas borrowed from Italy, Japan and even the 18th century.

Victorian Music Room

The Victorian Music Room should be furnished with a sympathetic understanding of the art it represents. A large share of the distinctive quality that marks the interior of the Victorian music room depends on the selection of furniture. The placing of the piano is of importance, and the best rule to follow is that observed on the concert stage, where the soprano part of the keyboard is always toward the listeners. For protecting the polished surface of the lid an embroidered scarf may be laid upon it.The chairs should be well built and of various shapes and sizes. Tables should be distributed wherever they can be of service for holding books and music.
