The Victorian era seems to consistently conjure up images of romance and a time when things were simple and less rushed.
Don't make the mistake of thinking that if your house does not have a wood exterior or have wood-look vinyl siding that Victorian trim won't work.
Other creative uses for Victorian trim include adding a "skirt" around the edge of an outdoor table, beverage cart or plant stand, topping a wood fence or trellis – you can even trim Fido’s domicile with the same trim for a coordinated look.
Queen Anne designs were also extremely popular during the Victorian period, and wonderful examples can be found on the East and West coast and nearly every place in between. With the emergence of the Victorian era came a forceful goodbye to the Greek Revival-style stark white house.
On the other hand, you can create a subtle contrast by painting the trim in a color that compliments your house color.
Add the flavor of old Dixie by trimming the veranda, the gazebo or the framed areas of a screened in porch.
