Lethbridge London Ltd were asked by Ben Pentreath to help restore and transform this historic and rather fun first floor sitting room study. The room was taken back to a shell so that the fine details could be rediscovered and enhanced. The house sits in one of Thomas Cubitts Bloomsbury Squares. It has been lovingly restored by the current owners, saving the house from the fate of many similar properties in the square, which have sadly had the historic interiors torn out, ironically, in the name of education!!

Victorian homes rose in popularity in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria, from the mid to late 19th century. Victorian architecture is a broad category that encompasses several well-known styles, including Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire and Romanesque.

A Victorian-style house has very distinct exterior traits — an asymmetrical two- or three-story shape, elaborate ironwork, vibrant colour schemes, steep roofs, pointed arch windows and door surrounds, and stained glass.

On the inside, Victorian decor is just as regal, with bold patterns, intricate wallpaper, hand-carved and overstuffed furniture, velvet and lace details, luxurious chandeliers, dark woods, and warm, rich colour schemes.
