Ready for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour!?! I love starting each weekend with fabulous inspiration! I’m in the middle of personalizing my new-to-me traditional home and these tours give me such great ideas. Erin from House of Earnest is showing us around her beautiful late 19th century Victorian home today — she loves soothing neutrals, natural textures, and lots of light. She finds, mixing in gold elements adds a little interest to a mostly neutral palette and you will see in her home, the slightest nod toward global is evident. You’re going to love with this Rustic Glam House Tour –
Our home is a late 19th century Victorian, and has been subject to years of renovations and styles. When we moved in, I wanted a style that was a bit modern and rustic with a hint of glam, but combined with the Victorian esthetics, I calmed down my initial design ideas and made them a bit more traditional to mesh well with the era of the home. I’m a minimalist at heart, and there is certainly nothing understated about anything from the Victorian era, so some creative designing was needed.
Entry – The only color I have on my walls is a dark Navy – Naval from Sherwin Williams – and it makes a statement in the home’s entryway. Metallic frames and a gold cane chair really pop off the dark walls. I love this room and have been inspired by it to paint some other rooms dark, albeit still neutral!
