Victorian house blog??

Imhappy&Iknowit IOWA zone 6bOctober 25, 2012

Does anyone know of a Victorian house blog like the Retro Renovation blog? I read Pam's blog all the time but I'm really into a bit older stuff than that. Still admire those bathrooms and love the bright colored kitchens! The dark Victorian colors don't do anything for me but I like the furniture style and prefer wood to steel cabinets. My house is old enough that I can use almost any era although I can't imagine a granite counter, pendant lights and an island with bar stools.

Check the old house forum here on GW. A few of those folks keep blogs and they'll probably know a few more.

I don't know if there's anything out there like retrorenovation though!

Here's a pretty good one that I belong to.

Here is a link that might be useful: Old House blog / forum

I'm on oldhouseforum but it's not very active. Our Victorian House. Did you hear that they ended up loosing the house? One of the kids got lead posioning. I don't know all the details. I agree, nothing like retrorenovation.com

I'll be checking on blogs from folks on here, checked Old House forum/blog - looks promising, lots to look at yet. If My Old House On line was busy, it would be enought, but there isn't much traffic there. I'll go back to the GW old house and look for blogs. Thanks, everyone.
