I think I actually like the second one even more, they're both right sized, but this lounge in the second one is dream home material for me

It looks like a high end New Orleans bordello. How do you keep a place like that clean?

The first one is terrific. Originally an unassuming, even dumpy house of no aspirations, the current owners transformed it with am pretty solid knowledge of Victorian period architecture and its rich nuances. They emphasized a highly decorated style of interior architecture that draws from Aesthetic Movement and English Arts & Crafts traditions, with some American specific touches as well, and they did it as a synthesis and conscious exaggeration rather than attempting the usual borrowing of details and references in which the spirit if the plan gets lost in excessive misinterpretation (of which the second house, despite it's better architectural beginnings, is guilty.)

It's highly personal, most people will hate it, but it's smart and for that reason it succeeds for me, both it what it did and what it didn't do. The exterior alterations/embellishments show the same knowledge paired with judgment in selection. Of all of the full-blown high Victorian restorations and decoration schemes, this one on a more than modest canvas is really impressive, I think.

Thanks, OP.

R7, yes I think its absolutely stunning. And I love the second place despite its excessive misinterpretation, its fun and joyfully excessive, in a way you just dont see on HGTV or in any interior design mags, at least not in the last 100 years
