Victorian Christmas in Chigwell

Chigwell with its connection with Dickens is a perfect place to create a Victorian Christmas. Coming up locally is an Adults’ Victorian Christmas Wreath Making & Floral Workshop on Thursday 5th December 2019 between 1 pm - 3 pm at The Roding valley hall Station Way, Buckhurst Hill, Essex IG9 6LN.

There are a whole host of wonderful abodes to be decorated in a Victorian style in and around Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford. They include the full range of properties from apartments, period flats, semi-detached homes, terraced houses, and spacious properties inside the grounds of Claybury Hall and other old manors which are among the most desirable opportunities in Chigwell. 

Many homes in and around the area were built after train service was established in 1903, which is when there was a building boom, between 1920 and 1945. Things changed later in 1945 when The Government placed restrictions on large-scale private building projects. Chigwell was designated as an essential part of the Green Belt which is what keeps it so attractive to those wanting to be close to the city but with a feel of the countryside.

For Christmas, it is great to learn how to make a Victorian wreath to take home and or other table arrangements. But there are plenty of other ways you can bring Victorian Interior Design into your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home; plaster coving, ceiling roses and corbels to give proportion and balance to your ceiling and walls. Relief and patterned wallpaper to give those walls a truly Victorian feel, Anaglypta wallpaper is a deeply Victorian decorative tool once used to cover often uneven unsightly walls where plan flat wallpaper would not disguise any imperfections. It is used below the dado rail and painted in a complementary usually darker colour to the wall above the dado.
