Louvers and Weathervanes

There’s nowhere quite like New England in the fall. Trees bursting with bright oranges, reds, and yellows provide a painterly backdrop for historic structures — colonial churches, neoclassical town halls, and ornate Victorian homes. All this beauty combined with the crisp fall air keeps New England on the top of our list of places to visit this autumn.

But for those of us who can’t make the trip east this season, we can draw inspiration from the timeless Victorian style and perhaps add a little East Coast to our own homes.

Some of the most distinct features of Victorian houses are their louvers and weathervanes. What better way to add some charm to your home than with a copper rooster or reindeer on your roof?

 

Here are some of our favorite New England homes and weathervanes:

While many Victorian homes maintain a dark, neutral palette, some have a more whimsical look, painted in bright colors or pastels.

Even the more traditional farmhouse-style home can look timeless with the help of a weathervane.
