Jo Leevers mixes historical and cultural context with practical tips and plenty of visual inspiration drawn from projects by top interior designers, with chapters organized according to how we use our homes: living, dining, cooking, sleeping, bathing, and working. Sprinkled throughout are practical decorating tips and information on the origins of the architectural features of the period.

Victorian Modern reveals how the history and design of nineteenth- century homes and ways of life can help to inform our present lifestyles and home décor in fresh and interesting ways.
