Vintage Victorian

I love this Victorian home in East London. It's full of vintage/thrift finds, it's quirky (pink painted floors and purple wall in the kitchen) and it's got a ton of character. I really like the idea of hanging a great jacket or dress on the wall and framing it with a big ornate frame. Gorgeous!!

Such a beautiful home and so much character! I love the children's room.

The dress hanging in the empty frame in the bedroom is awesome. I have a big empty frame propped on our living room wall. I wonder what I could hang in it...

Thanks for featuring this home! It's so eccentric and filled with personality. I'm a big fan of the whole wallpapered accent wall thing, and the murals are outstanding! I want a giant Bambi figurine on MY nightstand!

I'm a little worried that I love this soooo much! I think my taste is becoming more more feminine. I adore that kitchen. I adore femininty with an edge.

I really like the third picture down. I've been trying to convince my friend that an accent wall of wallpaper is a good idea and I'm totally using this as proof!

Such a fun house! The framed dress and the cherry blossom mural are really great ideas.

I'm obsessing over green lacquer cabinets lately and this isn't helping :)

So many perfect ideas in this house, the childrens room and the frame with the dress. What a fantastic way to display a pretty dress. Thats going in the ideas file.
