An American family decided to “move” to the Victorian era. They left all the benefits of civilization in the 21st century, taking with them only a computer.
Today, Sarah and Gabriel Chrisman live in an old mansion built in 1888 and wear Victorian era clothes.
Their love for this period was not limited to reading books, but smoothly moved into everyday life.
The couple gradually furnished their house in Port Townsend, which was built in 1888, with antique furniture.
They tried to avoid the use of modern technology as much as possible and decided to radically change their lifestyle, completely imitating people who lived at the end of the 19th century.
The changes also affected their clothes: the couple decided to completely change their wardrobe, buying outfits from that period. Sarah began to sew her own clothes, and the seamstress for Gabriel.
By purchasing another vintage item, the couple learned a lot of interesting things about Victorian-style outfits. The clothes made them more aware of their surroundings.
Modern household appliances, such as a landline telephone, internet and computer, are turned on only when necessary.
Instead, the house is furnished with antique appliances such as a wood-burning stove, a freezer, and a kerosene heater. The Chrisman family also does not use electric light bulbs.
The lack of music or TV in the house is not a problem for a couple who spend most of their time reading.
Sara devotes a lot of time to writing books. For these purposes, the woman uses a fountain pen, which she fills with liquid ink.
The woman bakes fresh bread, washes clothes by hand, and sews her own outfits. Even though it’s extra work, she doesn’t get tired of it.
