Victorian Cottage Home Decor


Victorian Home Decor.  Girl in the Garage

This weekend we traveled a couple hours to visit my in-laws for a few days.  We always have a great time with them; one big happy family just hanging out, eating good food, putting together puzzles, and playing cards.  And the boys LOVE seeing their grandparents, aunts and uncle, and their cousins whom they don’t get to play with very often.  Another reason why I like visiting (although I have to keep an extra eye on my boys so they don’t get too rambunctious) is looking at all of my mother-in-law’s Victorian cottage-style decor.  Step inside their house and you’re practically transported to a bygone era of simpler times; treasures are abundant wherever you look.  She has amassed a collection worthy of any antique gallery.  With her permission I’m sharing a few photos of some of her decor with you today; I hope you find it as lovely as I do!  (Please forgive me for the picture quality- I left my camera at home so I had to use my cell phone.)Victorian Home Decor.

Spring has decided to show up earlier there than where I live; I just love the color of this tree in their front yard.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my in-law’s Victorian home decor as much as I do, every time I visit!

    Okay – I LOVE that yellow towel rack that she has in the kitchen (that’s the kitchen, right?). And the busts of the women? Those are awesome!

    Your mother-in-law has great style. It must be so much fun to visit! Although, I can understand why you’d have to reign in your boys. I’d be nervous with my little ones there as well! So many things to touch (and potentially break)!

      Yes, the towel rack is attached to the side of her kitchen island- and those aren’t even all of the busts! It really is a great collection!

      Thanks Adrianne! I love that bathroom too, they just redid it within the last year or so. Definitely dreamy. 🙂

    LOVE her style! Gorgeous! I love that it’s been put together over time, not just thrown together all at once. You can tell each piece was chosen with care. Thanks for sharing!
