I know the round has finished, but I want to share anyway It has nothing on everyone else's last minute entries, but I'm proud of it. Due to the rushed nature of, well, everything, you are saved too much of a lecture on Victorian housing :P
Editish: Well, I had to sign up for imageshack because of photobucket limiting me, but apparently imageshack won't let me link images, so I apologise for the urls (and I dislike imageshack more than photobucket, something I wouldn't have thought possible). The internet officially hates me.
Second edit: figured it out, way more complicated than needs me, but pictures in thread!
Upgraded for the modern resident (though many of the upgrades are now outdated), Victoriana still retains its heritage air. While wired now for electricity, the older light fittings from gas days have been kept. The house was originally built before bathrooms (as we know them), but a few rooms have been converted (again, long ago converted). More info against each picture.
Note: obviously due to Sims constraints I couldn't build an entirely accurate Victorian house. The rooms are too big, I only have fires in two rather than all, etc. I also made some aesthetic choices that don't quite fit and slipped across the era a little, as there were multiple building influences over the time.
The garden has not had the loving care the house has had, but perhaps one day in future.
From this angle you can see the old coal chute to the coal cellar.
A closer view of the herb garden.
Apologies; I realised the rugs were missing after the overview picture. They have been added to the rooms pictures.
The kitchen is in the cellar. Remnants of coal still exist in the coal cellar, but also wood for modern burning habits. The table that would previously have been used for food preparation still exists, but a counter has been added for the modern Sim. The cranny behind the stairs is used for storage. The scullery remains separate and has had additional laundry needs added. Down the short hall are the wine cellar, and two bedrooms for servants (both the same).
Upon entering, you are greeted with the ornate balustrade, the staircase a focal point of the entry hall (shh... Sims restrictions, pretend!). A mahogony table awaits caller's cards, a coatrack and umbrella stand (empty) beside it.
The parlour demonstrates the wealth of the family, with futher mahogany furnishings and oriental knick knacks. While the house belongs to a upper class family, they are not wealthy enough for a separate music room with a grand piano.
The drawing room is a little more subdued. As it is only for friends and family, some pine furnishings are accepted there. The desk is for the lady of the house, and from there she runs the household.
The dining room is done in darker tones than the more feminine drawing room and parlour. The side table is used for a buffet during meal times. The archway leads to the butler's pantry, where the silverware is kept (though the butler will have to sleep on the floor if he sleeps there), and the stairs to the kitchen.
The study, with the library, is both the man's room and a public room like the parlour, so its opulence is in full force.
The upstairs landing is plainer. Visitors don't see the railing, so it is allowed to be more understated. The hall, not pictured, is very similar.
The master bedroom (which clashes a bit, but shh), still with washstand in the corner, has the more modern dressing table included.
The bedroom for the nanny/governess is attached to the nursey and it is not overly decorated.
The nursey, currently with a crib, but easily transferred to a bed. A few toys have made their in way in from the interconnected day nursery, where the children play with dolls and horses, take their lessons, and often have meals.
The bathroom off the main bedroom. The second bathroom is similar, but with a shower instead of a tub.
