Last but not least, we spoke to Jess, who runs the account @thisvictorianhome who talked us through the purchase of her Victorian home, and how she made it her own by using statement light fixtures, and even a home cinema (not jealous, at all!)
“Back in December 2019, our dreams came true when we became the owners of our very own Victorian Home. Although in need of some TLC, we couldn’t wait to get started designing and renovating the entire house.
Victorian homes are special to us, each containing their own unique and, in some cases, peculiar features. When ours became available, we jumped at the chance to start what some may perceive to be an overwhelming project. I’ve heard the phrase, “bitten off more than you can chew” a couple of times.
Over the past year, we have really discovered our unique, personal taste in decor and how we wanted our home to feel. I would describe our style as classic, yet quirky, with a few little surprises here and there, such as, our enormous ‘Up in the Clouds’ ceiling mural in the cinema room.
In our more contemporary “Home Cinema” room, aka the lounge, we wanted to completely change the game and opt for a more modern-industrial decor style. So, we chose the extremely popular “Sheridan Wall Light”. This light stood out to me instantly, particularly for being a favourite on Instagram, and it’s easy to see why.
