Edwardian architecture is an architectural style popular during the reign of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom (1901 to 1910). Architecture from up to the year 1914 may also be included in this style.
- 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."
