This Victorian House is all about simplicity. Many times when we start to decorate our houses, we forget about simplicity and we often go a little too far. I love the rooms of this older Victorian house located in London because the owners kept every single room very simple. All rooms feel really welcoming, really bright and comfortable.
I think we should feel inspired by the beauty of this Victorian house.
The family room, which is also used as a library, offers some comfort and lots of natural light. I adore the flea market coffee table.
Love For Home
This place is very charming.
One of my favorite place of the house. This eating area is so inviting and I love the fact you can open the doors to the garden, actually English gardens always take my breath away.
White walls and floors can make room feel serene.
An old leather club chair add some character to the space.
This is such a cozy and sunny master bedroom.
This Victorian house is filled with love. I can see that the furniture and accessories were collected over time and it feels beautiful for that reason. It’s not simply a house, but a home. I really think we should focus more on that. We often just think about what’s trendy at the moment, what everyone is buying for their homes, what color should our cabinets be. But, instead of it, we should put more of our energy towards building a home where we display only things we love, and not because a magazine said it looks great. We should make our beds using the linens that “hug” us during the night and not because they’re from this or that brand. We really should embrace our love for our home because they’re not only walls, but because that’s where we’re sharing our lives and growing with the most important people to us, our family.
Wishing you a day filled with simple, yet markable memories.

The Northern Europeans have a lot in common! Look at all that white and the light floors and the lack of clutter! I like it!
Love to you my friend.
P.S One of my best blog buddies in moving to Brazil she just told me on the phone! I hope to see her in NY this spring before she moves. I mentioned you to her. I need to put you together!
I love the dining room with the view of the back porch and yard. Lovely.
Where is the ‘Victorian” in this Victorian House? They whitewashed the walls, the furniture is that generic rustic style that’s in right now, and they hid all the details of the home until all the character was gone. Very plain and not at all in line with the spirit of the house. Thumbs down on this one.
I’m sorry this is not the “Victorian” we usually see. I agree with you, they changed it a lot and gave it a new look and much more rustic one, but that’s one of the reason I wanted to share this post; not because I don’t like the “usual” Victorians, I actually love them, but I wanted to share this one because it shows the identity of its owner and their vision for their home and I respect and admire the fact they “thought outside-the-box” and transformed it into what they love, not what the majority of us would expect.
Thank you for your comment. Have a great week!

I was a tad leery about this post since I don’t care for Victorian design but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. This home is light and lovely not the heavy style I was expecting. Thank you for the surprise.
Enjoy your Sunday Evening!
i almost moved on with my pre-conceived bias against most victorian architecture. what a surprise! this is a lovely home with surprises in each room.
crazy for that kitchen/garden…….ahhhh, to live in london!
have a great week
A house filled with pretty rooms is always fun to see (for me) Victorian or not. Thanks!
Yes, many of the classic Victorian elements are “missing” but a lovely place none the less. I do prefer color, but I love the simplicity of this place. Thanks for sharing.
I love the light, bright, and zen feeling about this Victorian. It’s so simple and is a true testament to the power of simplicity!
oh wow, so tranquil and breezy! I love it!!! Esp love all the quirky little details. Makes all the white and bright seem alot more interesting!
What is wrong with color. All white all the time would make me feel institutionalized. A few rooms, fine. But all of them?
