Before and After: A Victorian Transformation

Sunset magazine recently featured the 154-year-old Victorian home of a Napa Valley couple that had great bones, but was bogged down with layers of wallpaper and colored with garish blue paint. The home had been neglected for 30 years, but a lot of hard work combined with the couple's pared-down aesthetic transformed it into a welcoming, light, and airy space that any of you would swoon over. To see the transformation,

Beautiful, right? It amazes me how someone could ignore such a coveted crib for so long! I'm glad this Victorian's new owners were able to see through the mess and awful color choice.

I'm not much on beige unless you use it as a backdrop for brighter colors, which they didn't do. I think I would see to see maybe a pale aqua...something like that! Too vanilla for me!

They painted the woodwork?! What the heck is wrong with those people?!?In another 5 years when this "white trim with colored walls" trend is done, some poor person is going to have to try to scrape all that off every little groove on the balusters- and they'll never get the original finish back.154 years of pretty wood, and they paint it black and white. :(The whole point of a Victorian is tall ceilings and lovely ornate woodwork.. and they ruin it with the aesthetic of press-board tract-home detailing they sell at Lowes.Bah!/rant

Love the transformation, but it is a bit boring. Couldn't they have spiced it up a bit? Put in some color? It's very...beige!

Definitely an improvement, but I would've liked to see the result w/ more color, whether from a different wall paint or some splashes from rugs or pictures, etc
