Renovate and decorate an old house!

In the United States, there is a large market of affordable old Victorian houses or small cottages just begging for a makeover! This created a movement of people who are hunting down these types of houses to bring them back to life. There is no shortage of historic houses here either and this kind of project is just as attractive to house-flippers. So if you had this opportunity, do you know what design and what architecture you would give to this project?
