    Hmmm, I’m puzzled by this one. Hopefully some of you more informed can help me out. Although I love naturally finished woodwork, this one seems a bit overpowering to me. Is all of that beadboard on the walls and ceilings typical of this period? Perhaps it is, but something just seems off to me. While it is a beautiful home (and large), there is just something holding me back. I’m not meaning to be critical at all because it really is quite nice.

      I’m from Santa Barbara, and there you see quite a few Queen Anne Victorians with beadboard interiors like this. My guess is that the reason was at least partly economic. Beadboard was pretty cheap.

    • Randy C, my family home was located in Canada. The entire place (1840) was covered in beadboard. It was dark inside like this. It was the only thing other than the windows that survived updating over the years.

        Thank you and Jeff for your responses. I find this very interesting for sure. At least the beadboard won’t crack like the plaster did in my family home. My folks didn’t have the resources to hire a plasterer so they covered it all up with paneling which was so popular in the late 60’s and early 70’s. After their passing, I sold their home to a couple who owned an antique store. They ripped out all of the paneling, repaired the plaster and added beautiful period wallpapers. I am so glad we didn’t tear out all of the cracked plaster. It’s so sad that old houses fall into disrepair simply because the owners simply don’t have the resources or talents to maintain them as they were built.

    Looks to me that this house had a major interior remodel after the turn of the century. That antique wallpaper in the one bedroom is lovely – so glad they kept it!
