1987 Victorian Home Ideas
The era of Victorian homes coincided with the Industrial age, which afforded for the first time, mass production of ornamental fittings such as brackets and trim. Victorian architecture isn’t one single style; it is instead an era of design that includes many styles, such as Italianate, Queen Anne, Folk Victorian and even Gothic revival. Naturally, the expressions of Victorian architecture also vary and are in some cases rather diverse, making it difficult to pinpoint specific materials or shapes that represent Victorian homes.
For example, low-pitched or flat roofs were characteristic of Italianate homes, which were popular during the start of the Victorian era. On the other hand, Queen Anne homes had towers, turrets and fairly high-pitched roofs. Nevertheless, the essence of Victorian houses lay in their elaborate wooden railings and posts, wood or stone exterior and tall profile.
