Victorian Colors

Also known as Queen Anne.

Lyndhurst America's finest Gothic Revival mansion, Lyndhurst was built in 1838 in Tarrytown, NY, and overlooks the sweeping beauty of the Hudson River Valley.

Distinctly romantic, Victorian architecture marks a unique departure from the symmetry of early American architecture. Asymmetrical shapes, roof ornamentation and heavy, ornate trim throughout defined hallmarks of the Victorian era. Queen Anne homes often feature decorative shingles, trim and spindle work. Though the most recognizable exterior of Queen Anne houses is clapboard siding or shingles, a mixture of materials is also very common. The vibrancy and excitement of the paint colors often match the intricacy of details.
