Everything Gothic, Victorian and Edwardian are very close to my heart.
Even though I'm not quite fortunate enough to live in such an old house (My home is a 1950's build) We like to surround ourselves with the furniture
of the eras.
There's something beautiful and comforting in enveloping yourself with things that have seen many lifetimes before you and things made so well that
the Gods willing will last many lifetimes more. If anything the modern technology today becomes an intrusion and it's tricky to blend it in.
If I had my way I'd have a house with the old wash house and boiler and rooms with a full black Victorian range. How handy would they be if our
modern reliant world went tits up?
