Craftsman and Victorian? Can it be?

My husband and I just bought our very own Old House. I'm so excited to go in and make it ours, but I want to remain as historically accurate as possible. The house was built in 1910. To me, the outside looks like Folk Victorian and the inside has touches of craftsman with its built ins and the unpainted wood (almost) everywhere. I'm hoping for more style opinions.

Not sure on design details but I would be excited about heating it as well. How fun! What a treasure! Enjoy your new place.

Looks like a simplified Victorian style to me, more so than Craftsman. But you mentioned built ins...can you post some pics of that?

Is that panel door original?

I don't have pictures of the built-ins, they are mostly in the bathrooms...we haven't moved into the house yet.

I believe that the panel door is original because all the rooms in the house have these doors with the old door knobs. The same kind of doors (just taller versions) were in the basement but were removed and are now sitting in the garage. I have also attached a picture of the 'carving' that is at the corner of every door on the 1st and 2nd floor.
