A richly decorative era of Timeless grace and charm
Victorian rooms were usually full of pattern in rich colors on carpet, walls and curtains. Embossed paper with dark woodworking, windows heavily draped with lace curtains.
A typical room of the period would be crammed full of furniture. Pictures and miniatures covered the walls, and every available surface would be filled with trophies, souveniers, lamps, vases, pottery figures, flowers and bric-a-brac and leafy green plants.
An important piece of hall furniture was the stand to take coats, hats and umbrellas. Upholstered pieces included the ottoman, chaise lounge. Oriental rugs are ideal for a Victorian room, reflecting an interest in exotic places. Paisleys, too give an authentic touch. In the 1860s white and gold designs became popular for drawing rooms furnished in the "louis" style.

VICTORIAN HOME: Grandeur of the Victorian Era
Tastefully transform any room into an elegant and comfortable Victorian style iving space. The Victorian Home is not only a beautifully written design guide to reviving rooms from this era, it's also a fascinating history lesson on the culture of the mid- to late-19th-century society in Britain.

Therefore, every chair, ornament, and light fixture was carefully chosen and exquisitely arranged to create a look of maximum opulence. Today, the reasons to "go Victorian" are much simpler. Some rooms merely capture the essence of the period in the style of the fireplace or the choice of wallpaper. Other rooms duplicate the era in every minute detail, right down to the arrangement of dishes and cutlery .
