Spring is a great time to enjoy a walk outdoors and when you can stroll through a neighborhood with a Victorian house or two, it’s all the better! Here’s a collection of homes with major curb appeal that I think you’ll enjoy.
Victorian architecture is a style that lets you play with color and get away with bold choices. Like this purple house located in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Here’s a front view of the home – and now I want a big blooming hydrangea bush in front of my house!
You can probably guess where this charming Victorian house is located. Martha’s Vineyard!
If purple or blue isn’t your thing, how about pink? My Victorian farmhouse was pink when I bought it, but the color started to fade and I changed it to a butter yellow exterior.
This smaller Victorian cottage in the city wears a similar color palette.
A more subdued color combination is just as appealing. It’s fun to choose which colors you want to accentuate details like cornices, window trim, dental molding, fish scales, and so on. That’s what I enjoy most when it’s time to paint my own house with its gingerbread trim.
Of course, you can also go with a more monochromatic vibe like this pretty white Victorian farmhouse located in Hancock, Michigan.
Can you imagine the views from this gorgeous home’s porches and balconies?
Although they don’t make ’em like they used to, you can still find pleasing Victorian influences in some of today’s more contemporary construction, like the arched porch with its pair of round columns on either side.
And here’s my own humble Victorian house painted in Butter Up by Sherwin Williams. The dark blue is Downpour and the aqua color is Rivulet.
