A renovated Victorian

Posted on Wed, 28 Jul 2010 by KiM

I’m taking the easy way out today as it’s my first day back at work and I’m still pooped from the hoopla of the past week. So here is another home from my new favourite site, Period Living. Lynda and Peter Thomas bought a Victorian semi-detached house in Essex (a county in the East of England region of the UK) in 2004 and when the one next door went up for sale they snatched it up so they could create one detached home. Apart from the exterior walls, almost everything was redone to make it more of an open concept. I adore all of the vintage furnishings they have amassed and the casual and not-so-country vibe they have created. My favourite touch is the collection of bejewelled chandeliers over the dining table. (Photos by Brent Darby).

I love all the little details, the colorful sailboats, the crown…. GREAT SPACE!

Those floors are gorgeous! So this was once 2 houses that were semi-attached and now it is just one house? (did I get that right?) brilliant! I also love those chandi’s above the table.

I love the facade! Such an amazing after.

That facade would definitely make me stop in my tracks as I was passing. And I don’t know what it is about rugs in the kitchen but I am a sucker for them!

Wow, I love what they did with the stairs/foyer. You'd never know it wasn't originally one staircase.
