“Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths”
As I was perusing my newest edition of Traditional Home, I was intrigued with a Victorian cottage painted coral to stand out among its neighboring Southern brick and white-framed mansions. When I see Victorian architecture, I immediately think dark-stained wood interiors with heavy ornamentation, but as you will see, the interiors are light and airy with period appropriate antiques mixed with modern pieces and contemporary artwork. It is a perfect juxtaposition! Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and enjoy this Georgia home, sometimes referred to as the Barbie cottage!
The front parlor is painted “black bean soup” by Benjamin Moore, which accentuates the beautiful molding. I love the juxtaposition of period antiques with the modern Lucite coffee table resting on a zebra rug.
I love the warm and cozy feel of the kitchen with its original brick fireplace…the homeowners added the painted wood plank walls and beamed ceiling. The stainless steel top on the island adds a touch of modern to an otherwise rustic space.
As always, thank you for reading and I always love your comments!
