Product Description

The Victorian Home (Shire Library) by Kathryn Ferry

The nineteenth century saw huge changes in design and technology, with middle-class homes seeing drastic changes from the time of Queen Victorias accesion in 1837 to her death in 1901.

This book looks at the social history of rooms in the Victorian home and at how, thanks to industrialized mass production, people were empowered to make choices about how to decorate their homes. Numerous exterior and interior styles were available as Victorian architects and designers grappled towards a new decorative language by testing the best from the past. This meant that families could choose to live in an Italianate villa, a semi-detached Gothic or a Queen Anne terraced home. The changes implemented during the Victorian era resulted in a brand of interior design and asthetic still relevant and appreciated today.
