Cook Construction
This four-story Victorian revival was amazing to see unfold; from replacing the foundation, building out the 1st floor, hoisting structural steel into place, and upgrading to in-floor radiant heat. This gorgeous “Old Lady” got all the bells and whistles. This quintessential Victorian presented itself with all the complications imaginable when bringing an early 1900’s home back to life. Our favorite task? The Custom woodwork: hand carving and installing over 200 florets to match historical home details. Anyone would be hard-pressed to see the transitions from existing to new, but we invite you to come and try for yourselves!

Drummonds Bathrooms
Classically elegant, light-reflecting pieces and tiles in bold Mediterranean hues create a truly unique scheme. Set in south-west London this stunning 5 bedroom Victorian terrace features a Mediterranean-inspired family bathroom creating a relaxing, calming haven in which the family can completely relax and was published in the October 2015 issue of Homes & Gardens, Dream Bathrooms. When the property was purchased 5 years ago, the owners wanted to redesign the master ensuite and create more space so that all the family members could use. The owners were able to double the size of the room and created sufficient space to include a walk-in shower that features Drummond’s elegant Dalby Shower with curved pipe and a 300mm rose in Nickel finish “We chose these classic-style fittings from Drummonds because they are so glamorous. They are luxurious, beautiful made and built to last” says the owner. The striking Tay bath tub with its gleaming polished finish and a plunger waste is set against a wall paneled in antique mirror from Rupert Bevan Furniture & Interiors, all of which helps to reflect the light that streams in through the windows in the roof making the room feel even bigger. The double Crake basin with its chunky storage shelf and the beautiful Atlantic Grey marble comes in complete contrast with the beautiful Mediterranean floor tiles in sea blues and greens from Rustico Tile & Stone. The Brora high level WC suite along with the wall mounted towel rail and the bathroom accessories add even more unique touches to the bathroom. Photography by Darren Chung

Victorian homes rose in popularity in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria, from the mid to late 19th century. The ornate style quickly spread worldwide and gained traction in the United States from 1860 to 1900. Victorian architecture is a broad category that encompasses several well-known styles, including Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire and Romanesque. A Victorian-style house has very distinct exterior traits — an asymmetrical two- or three-story shape, elaborate trim and moulding, vibrant color schemes, steep roofs, wraparound porches, and stained glass. On the inside, Victorian decor is just as regal, with floral patterns, intricate wallpaper, hand-carved furniture, velvet and lace details, luxurious chandeliers, dark woods, and warm, rich color schemes.
