Horror Vacui

The Victorians often ascribed to a design idea that is  sometimes  unfairly described as “horror vacui” (fear of the empty.) The smart owner of this property is perhaps playing with that idea in their use of a generous amount of embellishments. Regardless, the result is a personal and effective expression of a design concept. Walla Walla, WA, USA. Queen Anne, 1895
