  • Your favourite eras

    My obsession with the Victorian era is at an all time high.
    After reading Jekyl and Hyde last week, visiting the Jack the Ripper exhibition and finding out theres a new series coming on tv about Queen Victoria I am giddy with crinolines and the macabre.

    What are your favourite eras?

    I loved the 80's all the bright electric colours sounds and smells... frills in all sorts of places. but then it was my teens so its where I discovered things and made choices for myself so I owned the 80's

        Ooh I could do with picking your brains, we've recently bought a Victorian house and, eventually, would like to incprporate'Victorian' colours in the decor. Did they use rich colours? Reds, purples, greens?

          I am a bit of an 80s girl but I really love art deco and my new bedroom is going to have this style.

            Mine would have to be the 50's in America, all of those cool teddy boys, hot rods, prom dresses and rock'n'roll music

            Unfortunately, I was born in the wrong continent and a couple of decades too late.

              Oh dear I'm afraid my mild obsession is the Tudor Period..from Henry VII right through to Elizabeth I. Obviously I don't think I would have liked to live then even if I had been rich as lives for Women then were pretty awful. Can't help being interested though!

                Eeek, now your asking.Wish Id paid attention to all the victorian films Ive watched.
                Erm, I have to say when I picture their rooms dark colours with huge prints on them pops into my mind.
                There are still some existing building that have old victorian tiles on them, really deep emerald green,looks beautiful.
                Sorry thats not much help.

                  Im a huge fan of history from tudor to the 80's. I love costume dramas, my particular faves are 1920's/30's and the 50's especially postwar fashion and the 'New Look.

                  But I also love elizabethan and georgian.... ok so I love it all

                    Thanks Seahorse, you've kind of described the types of things that I'd imagined. We don't want to go 'all out' Victorian but just try to have things that are in keeping with era in which the house was built. We're going to see if we can find some Victorian places to look round & get some books for inspiration.

                      Me too - for costume, music and dance: anything from Henry VII to mid-Victorian, especially the baroque period and for architecture and design: medieval, Georgian and Art Nouveau.
                      Bit of everything really.

                        Yep im a sucker for history by oh thinks im a sad act


                        If anyone likes 30's/40's I recommend a black and white film called 'The Women' its fanstastic with a great section in the middle of the film in full colour, the clothes are fantastic.
