Victorian modern : a design bible for the Victorian home

Leevers, Jo (author.). Smith, Rachael (Photographer), (photographer.).

Summary: "The ultimate design bible for the Victorian home, placing period features and 19th-century design in context and exploring how today's designers are adapting these houses in innovative ways for contemporary lifestyles. Loved for their period character, Victorian homes aren't always suited to modern living. Victorian Modern is the ultimate design bible to help you make sense of those inherited quirks and features, showing how leading designers and creative homeowners are turning their own homes into contemporary showstoppers. The book comprises seven chapters, organized according to how we use our homes: dining, cooking, entertaining, sleeping, bathing, working and transitional areas, such as hallways. Each chapter explains how the Victorians designed and decorated these spaces, before moving on to their modern interpretations. Inside are plenty of tips, tricks and inspiration for transforming your 19th-century home into a light-filled modern one, ready for the 21st century. Combining cultural context with advice and inspiration from the homes of interior designers, architects and stylists, Victorian Modern reveals how the history and design of 19th-century homes can influence and inform our modern lifestyles and home decor in fresh and interesting ways"--Publisher's description.
