Irresistible family appeal at 10 Curral Road, Elsternwick
Just waiting here patiently for you...
Always wanted a fireplace to put a beautiful Christmas garland on! It’s still a work in progress but gradually adding more to it! Got to find stockings next! Look how the candle highlights Colin & Lucy in the house painting! Video at the end to try capture it better. 🤗🎄✨
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

This is another not so pretty post, but with the start of a re-pipe, there is always an obstacle. We have to do more demo in the bathroom then originally planned. We are removing the pony wall to access the pipes that are behind it. I never thought I would discover anything fun behind this little wall, so here it is... can you tell??? My husband had no idea what it was, I started getting so excited when I saw a peep of it.
I’m learning a lot about how buildings are put together through this process. Like, who knew we’d need a colour-matched sill where the block work met the timber? Not me, that’s for damn sure 🤷‍♀️ So - little windows in, colour-matched sill ready (only a moron would forget that) and tomorrow, we clad . Swipe 👈 for a close-up of the Larch we* painted. (* I painted 20m, Rupert painted 580m. So, almost equal.) • • #extension #kitchenwindows #kitchenwindowview #kitchenremodel #victorianhouse #victorianhomes #sandstone #victorianhomes #mybuildingjourney #mybuildingsitehome #designupnorth #designupscotland #exteriordesign #exteriorpaint #exteriordecor #buildingsite #renowin #myhousemyhome #timbercladding #larchcladding #anthracite #anthracitegrey
Sanding floors! It’s honestly so hard to DIY with small kids in the house. Taking turns watching the girls so we can get this project done! I couldn’t do it without Seth! It’s pretty great when you put the headphones on, tune out the world, and dance with the drum sander... I can’t wait to have the girls in their new room! #diymom #victorianhomes #yearendprojects #biggirlroommakeover #lovemyhandyhusband #overallsarelife
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
Day 17- Best buys!! These are my bathroom pics. They are enormous and bring the room together and look great against the dark blue. My little girl loves the whales. They just are posters but look like real art work and are from @frompaperchase but are made by @cavallinipapers. They were only £3.50 each for the prints. Yes peeps £3.50!!!!! & I bought the frames from @ikeauk. Trouble is I want all of these vintage style beauties but got nowhere to put them. #homesofinstagram #decor #diy #victorianhomes #doityourself #myhome #myhousebeautiful #myhousethismonth #whales #posters #bathroomdecor #bathroomdecor #navybluewalls #bluebathroom #crab #lobsters #bathroomdecor #northlondon #northlondonhome #victorianhouse #artwork #paperchase
Evening insta how’s your day been?? Nothing exciting to report just more diy and nothing planned for this evening so it will be more telly watching, wine drinking curled up on the sofa in front of the fire 🔥 I’ve been very lucky to have been sent by @lektowoodfuels some of their Lekto hardwood heat logs and natural firelighters and me being impatient had to try straight away and boy do they burn well and kick out some heat 👏👏 so thank you 😊 . . . #fireplacedecor #fireplace #realfire #homeandgarden #livingroomdecor #livingroom #livingroominspo #fireplacemantel #homeinspo #prettyhome #periodproperty #periodhome #victorianhomes #instahomedecor #periodfeatures #vintagehomedecor #lektowoodfuels #mirror #cosyinteriors #cosyhome #saturdayvibes #interior4inspo #interiorinspo #homeinspo #loungedecor
How many folks can say they found their house on @cheapoldhouses ? Our youngest son saw the post and sent it to us. Two weeks later we were in contract. I’d read stories of people who bought houses they’d only seen on the internet. I never thought I’d be one of them. I didn’t get to see her until about a month after we closed. I thank God for it working out that way. Had I seen it beforehand, I probably would have chickened out.
Limestone has been delivered yay! Plumbing nearly done, electrical work done, bricky next week to open up the fireplace and put a stone lintel back to where it would have been. Plastering, decorating and joinery needs completing in 2 weeks before the flooring goes down 😍✅ It’s all happening kids how bloody exciting! #insidemyhome #inspotoyourhome #inspohome #victorianhomes #victorianhouserenovation #fireplace #exposedbrick #exposedbrickwall #stove #logburner #kitchendesign #kitchendecor #kitchenremodel #instahome #instakitchen #kitchendecor #greykitchen #greykitchencabinets #houseinspo #houseinsporation #projecthouse #limestonefloor #polishedconcrete
Time to upgrade a beloved family home. A cobbled together shambles of a terraced property, which grew as the family grew from one house through to the next. Decided we love it too much to move, but it needs to change. First step feasibility drawings.

That corner of the world was pretty complicated. We had freeze Boards, soffit rakes, crown, bed moulding, more soffits and freeze, step in the roof line, and a Corbel to dress. Now it looks like it grew there. The color scheme the home owner choose was right on. That red bed moulding highlights the architectural detail and gives that Victorian vibe.

@fixing_up_myrtle account been a little neglected on the progress updates! A lot has changed lately...bit weird now making our house nice for someone else to live in (until my training is done).

Is it too early to be planning Christmas table layouts?? Asking for a friend... Also let’s all pretend we can’t see the photoshop fail on the right, the runner was as short as my patience to correct it. Happy Friday!
Anyone know what these are? 🤔There are two in our dining room. They look like speakers or ventilation. Not sure if they are original but they look really cool. #victorianhouses #victorianhomes #thisoldhouse
Unless you’re into concealed gutters or rubber flat roof membranes (which would be fairly niche even for you lot 😂), I have nothing of interest to report on the extension front today. So here’s a little mini shelfie. Haven’t the heart to tell Mr. DIY his right knob is 2mm lower than his left one. • • #shelfie #plantsofinstagram #houseplantgang #plantgang #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantlove #livingroomdecor #dailydecordetail #styleithappy #victorianhouse #victorianhouserenovation #victorianhomes #livingroomideas #shelfstyling #plantpots #fauxplants #sideboard #spotlightonmyhome #nestandthrive #nestandflourish #dailydecordetail #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #myhomevibe
Day 16- Layering - normally I would have used my bed for this post, as I’m a fan of multiple throws on the bed thing.....however my bedroom looks like a bomb site so here’s our leather tub chair layered up with a sheepskin cushion and a smaller cushion in the same fabric as our curtains. All this post has done is made want to get the bedroom bloody finished. #homesofinstagram #decor #diy #victorianhomes #doityourself #victorian #tubchairs #cushions #greycushion #sheepskin #tanleather #decor #layers #myhouse #myhousebeautiful #myhousethismonth #homesofinstagram #homesofinsta

Today’s post is all about the big win during demo - the destruction of the laundry room. 📷 1 - This is the view standing at the front door. The wall directly ahead is the backside of the laundry room. (Don’t not get distracted by my hard working brother. He worked. I took pictures. Thank you, Trey!!) 📷 2 - The laundry room opened into the kitchen. 📷 3 - God bless my brother. The stuff that fell out of the ceiling onto him... well, I’d like to think it was just 118 year old dust. 😬 📷 4 - Looking in from the kitchen after Trey got all the stuff off the walls in the laundry room.... 📷 5 - More of Trey doing ALL THE WORK. 📷 6 - BAM!! Look at that view straight through to the front door!! This is how the house had been before the laundry room was put in. We almost didn’t take the wall down. We debated it, then decided we could always rebuild the wall if we really wanted to. So down it came! I swear we spent the rest of the day with our mouths hanging open. Opening up the foyer completely changed the feel of the house. It’s just beautiful. 📷 7 - a bit of a panoramic shot from the kitchen showing the foyer, the door into the dining room to the right and then the door to the side porch. And yeah, that’s Trey in the corner. Probably doing more work. 📷 8 - Finally, the view from the front door looking. Taking that wall down completely changed the feel of the house. I liked the house before, but then I totally fell in love when we opened up the entrance way. Just wow. #doitscaredmovement

HAPPY FRIDAY ! I'm off to London today for inspiration and ideas. I'm sharing this little snippet of a gem because it's one of my favourite wall art pieces I've made for my home. I love to make things for around my house but this idea took so long but was so worth it. I love stamps, bright ones, butterfly ones, birds, fruit, flowers. They're just so pretty. These ones I collected over the space of a year from friends, family, charity shops and antique fairs. And so I made a giant A1 collage of them. Totally worth it. More pics to come! #stampcollection #wallart #butterflies #floral #birds #designer #collage #printandpattern #interiors #myhouse #rentedspace #rental #victorianhomes #lounge #eclecticinteriors #decor #homestylist #homestyling #art #handmadehome #colour

I know this is not house related but...Who needs twinkling lights when you have freezing rain? The trees in the house are looking lovely. I'm sure they do not appreciate being covered in ice, but they surely do look pretty...It makes me wonder, how did they predict storms like this back in the days when they didn't have radars and satellites to rely on? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #winterishere #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #itssnowing #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #freezing #rain #snow #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
Internal shot's from today's #houseoftheday_ie the refurbishment and contemporary extension to a spectacular Victorian dwelling in Orwell Park, Dublin designed by the ever brilliant @aof_architects. The project is detailed in the following excerpt from the architect's website http://www.aof.ie from where you can check out more of their amazing work. . The challenge was to restore the house to its original glory and to transform the low & dark garden level. The owners wanted their kitchen at this level so they could easily enjoy the garden. The solution was to lower the floor level. 1.5 meters below the existing level, a new concrete floor was formed across the full width of the house and extended out into the garden. . A clear open plan kitchen was created. Cross beams transfer the load of the return over head and enable a clear column less space. This space opens onto a terrace which then steps back up to the garden. The garden level has been transformed into a tall, bright space. The remainder of the house was refurbished simply. . 📸 by Marie-Louise Halpenny .

Here is another old timey picture for you! This is J. W. Minnich. He is the one for which the house is named after. I did a lotnof research on this house and, apparently, there was another property here, but when he bought it he did extensive renovations to make the house what it is today. He was a business man (and a very good one apparently as he was one of the richest man in town), and he owned a cigar factory. Apparently, cigar manufacturing was all the rage in Dallastown at the time. He was born 1860, and died in 1940 (or was it 1941?). And according to a newspaper clipping that I found, he once lost his umbrella and it was a very big deal because the whole ordeal was published in the newspaper. Anyway...can I just draw your attention to the cane?? You guys, he has a cane, just for show, like what you see in movies!!! Isn't he dapper? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldPictures #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldphotographs #dapper #handsome #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
This recent project was a newly renovated Victorian so our focus was to highlight the modern updates while maintaining the home’s character.
Corbels have become signature art work decorating Victorian-era facades from the later half of the 19th century. Some made by hand and others mass produced by water mills around 1870 they have lasted the harsh New England weathers and now considered elegant and timeless style in 2018. We uncover many of these Corbels in various stages of neglect and we always chose to save, preserve, and share their history whenever possible. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Restoration isn’t easy when your 4 stories up.

Isn’t it amazing what a lick of paint can do 🎨 We needed a quick fix for the hallway to smarten it up until after the extension work when we can finally get the blue carpet up and decorate properly! But until then the fresh wall is making me happy!

Introducing.. Her Gorgeousness, Lady Blue. This is currently hanging in the room that will eventually become my son's room...I am preeeety sure it will be moved from there, as I don't trust a 5 yr old with making sure nothing happens to it...He is not exactly...careful...and I totally see a ball hitting it or something. So yes, she will be moved to a new location somewhere else in the house. We'll see...Also, can you catch a sneak peek at the hand painted wallpaper border in the background? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldLamps #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #chandelier #wallpaper #vintagewallpaper #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
Day 14 for #myhousethismonth is Vintage Vibes and whilst I love the new revamped office space at the top of our stairs it is so difficult to photograph as very little natural light and walls are dark but here’s an old movie poster that you don’t normally get to see and a £5 Danish charity shop chair I revamped 😁. BTW I’m not blonde either 💁🏻‍♀️ 😘. I’m currently in the process of revamping my grown up daughters room which has become a dumping ground for EVERYTHING!! When she comes home we have to clear a path for her to get to bed 😂. So I’ve ordered a new storage bed and have ‘plans’ which are currently a secret. 🤫. #myaastyle #interiorboom #deliciousdarkdecor #livefabulousandfearless #styleithappy #nohouserules #brightboldhome #banthebeige #spotlightonmyhome #myinteriorstyletoday #myhomestyle #mystylishspace #sorealhomes #crashbangcolour #howvintage #interiorandhome #myhomevibe #myinteriorvibe #myperiodhomestyle #myspaceanddecor #Itsallaboutthehouse #sassyhomestyle #spotlightonmyhome #victorianhomes #pembrokeshireterrace #midterracedhouse @laredoute desk. @louisdepoortere carpet
