This photo is of one Cardiff's crown jewels architecturally speaking all lit up with its Christmas lights taken Saturday evening. This is Morgans Arcade which is one of several Victorian built covered shopping arcades in Cardiff city centre. These arcades are of small independent shops, boutiques, cafés and restaurants and are a huge contrast to the massive modern shopping mall we have in the city centre with the biggest only being a few minutes walk away from this gorgeous arcade. #morganarcade #morganarcadecardiff #shoppingarcade #retail #shopping #christmaslights #holidayseason #beautiful #picoftheday #photooftheday #photography #this_is_cardiff #wearecardiff #igerscardiff #design #victorianarchitecture #architecture #reflection .. @lilmissfeatherbum , Jaymie this would be perfect for you.. xx
Good people of Instagram...I need your opinions. So, for the last 10 years we have had the same 32" TV, which still works beautifully. It served us well in our little rancher, but it was dwarfed in this big living room, so it was time for an upgrade. Queue in this monstrosity...I love our new TV, I adore it...but it is the most un-victorian thing I have ever seen. Now let's be realistic here...Yes, we want this house to be as period accurate as possible, but the reality is...we still have to live here and, like it or not, the TV has to stay. There's no other wall to put it in so now the question is...how to blend it in? The credenza you see there is just temporary, it needs to be refinished and moved to another room, so that will be gone, and we will be buying a more period appropriate piece of furniture for the TV components...but around the TV, what should I put there? Something above the TV? Something on the sides? What do you think? At least we were able to hide the cables! 😁 . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldFurniture #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
She lives in a house, a very big house in the country... (OK it's a hotel but a girl can dream.) Saddle my horse, I wish to take a turn around the grounds.

Beautiful old #VictorianHouse on a hill in Pineville, Kentucky!
Sunday Funday ☀️ It's a NOLA kind of day! I would plant myself on that upper porch - do you think the owners would mind? And....doesn't that upper window look like a half closed eye? 👁 Thanks for tagging #archi_ologie @Regran_ed from @thatcitycharm - It’s days like these that I’m thankful to live in this climate - #regrann #oldhouselove #victorianhouse #victorianarchitecture #homesweethome #neworleans #gardendistrict #oldhousecharm #southerncharm
Planted at the same time as the house was built - our giant redwood provides a commanding view from the master bedroom. The Victorians had quite a thing for them in the day. #redwood #SequoiaGigantea #sequoia #Wellingtonia #lancetwindow #lancet #victorianhouse #victorianarchitecture #gothic #gothicstyle #locationhouse #boudoir #boudoirinspiration #studiohire #photographystudio #photoshoot #amazingspaces
First visit into The city centre to see the decorations. I always love the decorations on Queen’s Arcade and they really add to the facade of the building. Note the AR monogram for Austin Reed #belfast #visitbelfast #queensarcade #queensarcadebelfast #building #architecture #christmasdecorations #decorations #christmas #ernestjones #northernireland #discoverni #victorian #victorianarchitecture #instani
This is an interesting example of a Queen Anne/Folk Victorian and Colonial Revival combination. It is not nearly as asymmetrical as most homes like it, and the gable roof with a single large gable rather than a hipped roof with multiple smaller gables is also unusual. Another uncommon feature which I really like is the close spacing of the Colonial Revival columns on the wraparound porch. #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #queenanne #queenannestyle #folkvictorian #victorianhouse #victorianstyle #victorianarchitecture #colonialrevival #old_house_obsession
Knebworth! Where I ran the Hertforshire Half this morning. Looking glorious in early morning mist - a top spot for a gruelling run. As usual, Spence stunned coming in 6th out of 2000. I came in at 2hr14m, not a best for this year, but excuse me, look at that elevation! #hertfordshirehalfmarathon #knebworthhouse #hertfordshire #mistymorning #halfmarathon #race #run #sundayrunning #runningshoes #runningday #knebworthhouse #gothicrevival #victorianarchitecture #morning #statelyhome
Have you been to Thomas Edison National Historical Park in West Orange NJ? I went when I was a kid and have been wanting to go back! You get to see his laboratory and home, Glenmont, which were both designed by Henry Hudson Holly in 1887. Glenmont is part of a gorgeous estate that has six outbuildings, including a barn and a greenhouse. You can also see some of Edison's poured concrete structures, like his 6-car auto garage and the potting shed. Just down the road you get to tour his laboratory from which came the motion picture camera, sound recordings, silent and sound movies and the nickel-iron alkaline electric storage battery. The number of items within this collection is staggering - over 300,000 items and over 5 million documents within the archives. It’s a must see - go to nps.gov/edis or @thomasedisonnhp for more info (info/pics from their site and pinterest). 📸 B/W - Glenmont in 1905; Chem Lab ca. late 1800s. #thomasedison #newjersey #placestovisit #instahistory #historicplaces #inventor #edison #njisntboring #queenanne #housemuseum #victorianarchitecture #housetour #laboratory #historicsite #instacool #nationalparkservice #thenandnow #preservation #coolthings
Winding staircase plan. Nothing (hopefully) you will ever have to deal with during a renovation, will be more of a pain in the arse than reinstating a staircase. Autumn 2018.

HU 🇭🇺⬇️ The home of Queen Victoria’s favourite prime minister, Benhamin Disraeli and intelligence base during the Second World War, called “Hillside”. Pevsner wasn’t thrilled with this Victorian red brick design. OK, perhaps it is not the most imaginative and creative Victorian design, but I still like it 🤭😯 and it feels homely. Note Disraeli’s head above the door. Statues: Lord Derby and Disraeli. Beautiful Victorian floor tiles. . *** Viktória királynő kedvenc miniszterelnökének, Benjamin Dosraelinek otthona és a II. világháború alatt a brit hírszerzés egyik bázisa, melynek fedőneve “Hillside” volt. Pevsner nem tartotta sokra építészetileg ezt a vöröstéglás, viktoriánus épületet. Jó, hát lehet, hogy nem a legfantáziadúsabb és legkreatívabb dizájn, de nekem bejön 🤭😯 és otthonos. Figyeld meg Disraeli fejét a kapu fölött! A szobrok: Lord Derby és Disraeli. Gyönyörű, eredeti, viktoriánus padlócsempék. . . #victorianarchitecture #victorianbuildings #victorianhouses #victorian #victorianmanor #redbrick #redbrickhouses #disraeli #benjamindisraeli #queenvictoria #victorianfloortiles #floortiles #hillside #secondworldwar #britishintelligence #nationaltrust #hughenden #hughendenmanor #englishcountryside 🇬🇧 #englishcountryhouses #englishmanors #englisharchitecture #buckinghamshire #england 🇬🇧 #visitengland 🇬🇧 #englandspuzzle

Finished study of, ‘The Old Axiom Building’, Cheltenham. Line drawing with 3H pencil on 200gm, A3 Fabriano paper. - The historic warehouse built in the early 1800’s, originally used for grain storage and flea markets, was later transformed into one of Cheltenham’s most iconic creative spaces in the late 1970’s. It housed artist studios, exhibition space, and became a hub for creativity, providing a place for local people to watch musicians play. - As a small child, my mum regularly took me to craft workshops held at the Axiom. After it’s closure in 2000, I began to attend similar workshops at what is now known as The Wilson, Cheltenham. - Visiting this site and partaking in creative classes was an integral part of my childhood which has fed into my adult life as an artist. It gave me the physical space, as well as mental, to be able to express myself and exposed me to exciting materials such as felt, clay, charcoal and various other 3D things. - After being closed for 18 years, it has now been converted into modern apartments, yet holding onto its raw Victorian personality. - #theoldaxiom #axiomcentre #winchcombestreet #axiomapartments #axiom #developer #developed #apartments #repurposed #victorianarchitecture #architecture #drawing #pencildrawing #line #fabriano #creativespace #artist #musician #cheltenham #people #space @wilsonartscollective @thewilsoncheltenham
I am drawn to days gone by. The rustle of silk skirts and the feel of the parasol in my gloved hand delights my senses. My imagination comes alive with stories I want to tell and drawings to undertake. 🎩🏫🎩 #door #interiordesign #galveston #victorian #galvestonhistory #antique #victorianhome #oldhome #texas #history #victoriana #victorianstyle #thevictoriantimes #oldhouselove #victorianarchitecture #architecture #periodclothing #bryanmuseum #victoriandress #livinghistory

Shop window reflections. Grainger Market was part of Newcastle’s Victorian Grainger town development. A covered market was built to re-locate the street sellers from the now famous architectural Grey street after the transformation. These days this vegetable hall has been revamped and has a variety of retail uses, mainly coffee shops in the open spaces. #graingermarket #victorianarchitecture #reflection #newcastle #newcastleupontyne #newcastlegateshead #tyneandwear #NewcastleLife #ignewcastle #igersnewcastle #newcastleviews #1UKshot #1reflectionshot #bestukpics #ukpotd #uk_greatshots #uktravel #total_united_kingdom #loves_united_kingdom #Bestunitedkingdom #capturingbritain #excellent_britain #explore_britain #gloriousBritain #Loves_United_England #picoftheday #photography #photooftheday #j_on_tour

You guys...you guys...you guuuuys!!! Take a look at this! Ok...quick back story...I signed for an account with Newspapers.com and started doing some research, and I came across this article...Published February 14th, 1908 in the York Daily newspaper, the title reads: "Dallastown Man Entertains Friends"...Look..at..this...article!!! You all remember Chauncey, right? He was about to marry his father's housekeeper but died two weeks before the wedding? The more I find out about Chauncey, the more I discover his character. He clearly was a socialite, a man who liked to entertain, and I have learned that he had a few flings before Idabelle, all women of high social status, which makes me wonder why he chose a housekeeper to settle down? Nothing wrong with that, but he could have had any woman he wanted...why choose her? What was it about Idabelle that tamed Chauncey? But anyway...isn't this the absolutely most victorian thing you ever read? (I know it's past victorian time, but if you have ever watched a period drama you will know exactly what I mean) . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #oldnews #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldnewspapers #oldhistory #socialite #posh #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
Classic Italianate in Evanston built in 1885; particularly fond of the detailing on the arched windows and the unpainted, natural brick. #cincinnati #evanstonohio #queencity #italianate #victorianarchitecture #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #archi_ologie #oldhouselove

With doors of blue, so very pretty against the honey bricks of her Victorian terraces, how pleased Hove looked with herself today in the autumn sunshine. 🍁
