Description:
Edwardian architecture is the style popular when King Edward VII of the United Kingdom was in power; he reigned from 1901 to 1910, but the architecture style is generally considered to be indicative of the years 1901 to 1914.

Edwardian architecture is generally less ornate than high or late Victorian architecture , apart from a subset used for major buildings known as Edwardian Baroque architecture.

Characteristics

  • Colour: lighter colours were used; the use of gas and later electric lights caused designers to be less concerned about the need to disguise soot buildup on walls compared to Victorian era architecture.
  • Patterns: "Decorative patterns were less complex; both wallpaper and curtain designs were more plain."
  • Clutter: "There was less clutter than in the Victorian era . Ornaments were perhaps grouped rather than everywhere."
