Nice contemporary house, no? On my dog walk today this house was unique with its half tower bay window, porch, and dormer above the garage. This photo looks west, so the rising sun would lighten the front of the house. #swanseama , #architecture , #newenglandhomes , #victorianhouses , #porches , #landscapeswithtrees
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
San Francisco - Alamo Square. As belas casas vitorianas construidas entre 1837 - 1901. Patrimônio histórico da cidade. #alamosquare #victorianhouses
Tom and I have had the most successful weekend to date in this house. 2x fireplaces polished and 427x holes filled ✅ Feet are now firmly up and TV on. Asleep in the next 15 minutes for sure. #victorianhouses #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #homerenovation #renovation #interior123 #interiordesign #victoriandesign #interior4you1 #interiorforyou #castiron #mygaff #myhomevibe #homevibes #tile #tiled #tiles #polish #polished #myhousebeautiful #beforeandafter #tranformation #sundayvibes #sundayfunday
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.

Рівно 3 роки в Штатах🤗🎉⁣ ⁣ Часто питають як я опинилась в Штатах, розказую😉⁣ Спочатку вирішила поступати в коледж. Знайшла коледж, заповнила анкети, зі мною сконтактувались- провели співбесіду по Skype. Після співбесіди одобрили мою заявку і захотіли поспілкуватись з мамою... Все пройшло гладко, потім мені надіслали документи на поступлення 🤗⁣ Поступила в коледж вивчати арт 😅фотографію і тд.⁣ ⁣ Але вивчивши питання повністю зрозуміла, що грошей на навчання треба дуже багато, їх немає, а опції з кредитуванням я не розглядала на той час, через особисті причини. І вирішила шукати інші опції.⁣ Мені дуже повезло!⁣ Знайома поїхала в Штати по програмі Au Pair, і розказала як це зробити. Дякую Таня😌⁣ ⁣ Au Pair- міжнародна програма культурного обміну. Суть програми- їдеш за кордон, працюєш в сім‘ї, в якості помічника для дітей. За цю програму читала ще в школі і мріяла поїхати в Німеччину! Але лінива я німецької так і не вивчила🤷‍♀️вчила я її по піснях RAMMSTEIN і думала що це найчудесніша мова в світі😍 А тут виявляється Au Pair є і в Штатах! І англійською я можу говорити, не як німецькою!⁣ ⁣ Зібрала мед. документи, докази того що є досвід роботи з дітьми (так як моя мама няня, і я їй іноді допомагала, а також моя педагогічна освіта- дані докумeнти не були проблемою)⁣ ⁣ І я почала шукати сімю, а через деякий час мій літак вже приземлився в Сан-Франциско. Місто яке я буду любити завжди❤️⁣ ⁣ Це все загальна інформація, завтра напишу детальніше про Au Pair. Вірю що це може допомогти багатьом здобути новий досвід і відкрити для себе нові країни🏙
Miss getting lost in the heart of San Francisco.
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
There's nothing like getting stuck in and getting a job done! We moved in last week and this morning the sun was shining and I felt motivated to tackle the front path... An hour and half later and one full brown wheelie bin... It was clear!! Yes you heard me right! It's not been cleared for so long that the bottom layers of leaves had formed a kind of thick mud!! There were worms bigger than snakes I tell you, which in manner of Disney Princess I obviously relocated to a nice new home 🤷🏼‍♀️👸🏼. I didn't sing. We've only lived here 5 days, can't be scaring the neighbours just yet!! The gate has clearly seen better days and is on the ever growing list to sort out. I'd like one with our number in the iron, which will match our neighbours! It's such a good feeling, standing back and thinking yes I worked hard and it's made a difference! Even if it is just a path!! · · · · · · · · #houserenovation #womeninbusiness #victorian #entrepreneurlife #femaleentrepreneur #femaleentrepreneurmovement #renovationideas #victorianhome #renovations #renovationlife #interiordesign #womensupportingwomen #diy #girlboss #home #interiors #victorianhouses #bosslady #house #mompreneur #renovationproject #femaleentrepreneurs #homedecor #femaleentrepreneurship #victorianhouserenovation #bossbabe #homerenovation #renovation #victorianhouse #womeninbiz
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
It maaay be almost Winter here in New Jersey, and contrary to popular opinion, it maaay be my favorite time of the year to visit the beach. No crowds, no sunburn...just peace and quiet 👌#youfeelme ? #capemaynj
Nice chimneys on the top of Greencross Vet in White Hills.
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
We are so lucky to have a photo of the original house to reference to for restoring it! #oldhouses #victorianhouses #victorianhomes #thisoldhouse #homerestoration
The old charm of Notting Hill is 👌☺️ ...and the pastel colors make no harm either ☝️🌸
These roman blinds are ready for fitting tomorrow in a Victorian house bay window. We've covered the battens in the matching fabric for a neater finish. Fabric is Sanderson Maelee in Celadon. #mystylelibrary #stylelibrary #sandersonfabrics #romanblind #romanblinds #interiors #interiordesign #victorianstyle #victorianhouse #victorianhouses #fabric #softfurnishings #interiorfabrics
A palm tree stretching out to the sky in front of some of the many Victorian houses in SF. Always such a cool thing to see! #sf #sanfrancisco #palmtrees #minimalism #victorianhouses #california #blackandwhite
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
I know its after Halloween but I have to share more incredible Victorian house close-ups by my 5th graders! Obviously in rainbow order...🌈 This idea was inspired by @deepspacesparkle and someone on #tpt named "The Creative Corner." . . . . . . . . #victorianhouses #victorianarchitecture #housedrawing #valuepainting #blackpaper #silversharpie @sharpie #spooky #halloweenart #spookysunset #thespookyartroom #5thgradeart #collage #elementaryart #elementaryartteacher #elementaryartroom #artroom #iteachart #kidart #teachersfollowteachers #artclass #childrensart
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
I wish the reasons why I came to Nevada would be better ones then escaping the fire and smokey air in Butte County, but you sometimes have to try and focus on the positive things.. Just minutes from Carson City, historic Virginia City offers a unique look into the past... Hoping at least this hilarious doormat cheers up whoever reads this post and swipes through all the pictures I‘ve taken #nevada #virginiacity #westernstyle #victorianhouses #hauntedmansion #saloon
Next to the doctors car park, next door’s chimneys.
Just love the old victorian terraced houses.. #londona #london #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianhouses
Internal shot of today’s #houseoftheday_ie the beautifully detailed extension to a Victorian terrace house in Ranelagh, Dublin designed by the brilliantly talented @scullionarchitects #scullionarchitects . The project is detailed in the following excerpt from the architect's website http://scullion.ie/ from where you can check out more of their stunning work. . An Antiquarian asked Scullion Architects to extend and reconfigure his Victorian terraced house in Ranelagh, Dublin 6 to best display his eclectic antique collection. Using a palette of natural materials (lime, copper and terracotta) drawn from the older house, we arranged a linear sequence of top lit rooms culminating in a view through folding timber doors to the south facing garden. . The new extension features natural materials including copper, lime render and terracotta drawn from the original house. South-facing garden doors fold back to bring sunlight deep into the kitchen. . 📸 by unknown please DM for credit .

Beach by white Victorian houses and mountains nearby 😍🏖⛰
The Walls Come Tumbling Down! So that happened yesterday..... An opening was made for double doors for some borrowed-light from the living room (or the parlour as it would have once been known). Due to the fact our garden is north facing, the dining room is always dark & dingy no matter what time of day, and I could see it becoming a redundant room. So after much deliberation, we decided to open it up. I am still unsure as to whether we have made to the right decision. I don't like deviating from the original property plan and feel we have done the house a disservice, but I'm hoping once the lintel & doorframe goes in, doors hung, walls replastered, mouldings made for the dining room ceiling & rose replicated for living room, both rooms redecorated and new flooring laid, my opinion will change. What doesn't help, is the fact the builders went ahead and knocked through (coz rain prevented them from doing other works yesterday) even though we'd asked them not to just yet! 😤 . . . . #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianhouses #victorianterracehouse #victorianterracedhouse #victorianterracerenovation #littlevictorianterrace #victorianterracerescue #victorianterracedrenovation #victorianterracerestoration #victorianrenovation #victorianhouserenovation #victorianhouseplans #victorianhouserestoration #restoration #restorationproject #oldhousetonewhouse #ohnh #periodproperty #periodproperties #periodfeatures #victorianwindows #victorianparlour #sashwindow #sashwindows #upvcwindows #openingup #borrowedlight #buildingworks

Funny story...we are doing research on this house's history and we were in the basement trying to figure out what was the original footprint of the house. I got my phone flashlight out and was telling my husband, "you gotta keep your eyes open, you never know what you are going to find"...and then, outnof the corner of my eye I saw these...neither one of us had registered them before as they look like ordinary pieces of wood...but I sent him under the cobwebs and when he flipped them over...ta-da! Look at these doors! They are definitely cabinet doors, based on size...but I don't have any cabinets anywhere missing their doors...or at least I haven't found it yet...so now the question is, what to do with them?! . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

Windows are a pane! Can't wait to replace these bad boys with white UPVC sash look windows so they're more in keeping with the property! Last night my OCD decided to clean the living room windows... The night before the builders come back in! WTF! First time I have cleaned them since moving in; they was rotten! Washed the left behind manky net & heavy curtains, cleaned the windows and put some windowlene up to stop prying eyes looking in! 👀 Tonight they're full of dust! 😱😂 It's worth it though....watch this space.... Photos to follow.... In other news, the Windowlene has masked "that smell" we can't seem to eradicate! 😂 #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianhouses #victorianterracehouse #victorianterracedhouse #victorianterracerenovation #littlevictorianterrace #victorianterracerescue #victorianterracedrenovation #victorianterracerestoration #victorianrenovation #victorianhouserenovation #victorianhouseplans #victorianhouserestoration #restoration #restorationproject #oldhousetonewhouse #ohnh #periodproperty #periodproperties #periodfeatures #victorianparlour victorianwindows #sashwindow #sashwindows #upvcwindows #windowlene #cleaning #ocd
I tried to come up with a neat story for this...I got nothing. Zilch. Nada. Here's what we know: the previous owner liked the sconces on each side of the mantel, but she did not want to see the switch to turn them on/off because...reasons? So she asked her husband to hide it inside the fireplace. Yes, you can actually hide it. See that black border? It has a bit of a lip on the inside so that you can actually rest the switch on it. Otherwise it looks like what you see in the picture....So now, every time I want to turn my beautiful sconces on, I have to jump inside the fireplace like I am going to Narnia, find the switch and turn it on (provided that the on/off switch for the switch itself hasn't been turned off, because then I have to turn that on before I can turn the actual lights on...why?!?!?!) I cannot wait for my lovely husband (hi, hun! 👋) to fix this for me because I cannot live with this insanity...
Fall seemed to happen overnight at The Beckurt House. I’m obsessed with our beautiful home and all the yellow that surrounds it. 🍂
PAINTED LADIES & VICTORIAN HOUSES Америка - это либо высотки, либо более-менее понятные нам многоэтажки, либо (самый красивый вариант) - дома в викторианском стиле. Дома частные, принадлежат семьям. Иногда в чем-то похожем размещают кафе (недавно были во вьетнамском). У Painted Ladies большая известность в городе. Похожих домов тут очень много. И действительно, они делают Сан Франциско очень красивым. Больше всего мне нравятся лестницы на крыльце и отделка. Но жизнь в доме обязывает к большему вниманию к своему жилищу, чем в квартире. Зато при покупке дом будет ваш. Насколько я знаю, купить квартиру в нашем понимании в Америке сложно, так как земля кому-то принадлежит. Цена на такие домики примерно стартует от 1 млн, если верить Гуглу. #paintedladies #victorianhouses #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscocalifornia #californiasanfrancisco #americanoxygen #lifeinamerica #белорусывамерике #californication #жизньвамерике #unitedstates #usa #usa 🇺🇸 #викторианскиедома #домаввикторианскомстиле
