Colorful Walls in an English Victorian Townhouse

East Dulwich is one of the finest 19th-century suburbs of London. And in this beautiful area you can find today’s colorful home. Via a stooped porch with Gothic-inspired pilasters and a convex awning, you enter the beautiful home with colorful rooms, period details, and five bedrooms.

The home was built in 1879, and luckily, it has retained many of its original features as it presents intricate cornicing, original fireplaces, and a traditional red brick façade. Originally, Victorian houses had small closed-off rooms, but in this home, the ground floor rooms have been opened up, and from the front room, you can see right to the kitchen in the back.

What strikes me most about this home is the use of color. The owners used deep shades in the living room and lighter color tones in the bedrooms. At the back, the house is also extended so this is, once again, a beautiful example of blending historic and modern styles.
