Give Your Home A Victorian Style Update
Giving your home a Victorian interior update. This means incorporating rich and ornate elements. There are several affordable ways with which you can give your home a Victorian update and add feminine elegance to your interiors.
Linens are one of the most important things to focus on in any luxury home décor. With natural and neutral hues accentuated with frills, laces, ribbons, embroidery, these linens will add charm to any room. They can include tableware, mats, curtains, valances, and even the upholstered fabrics of the sectionals, chairs, and couches. You can choose the ones that match your style and taste.
Greeting cards can be given different shapes to form a nice display on the walls. Another great idea is to make use of pressed flowers to give a frame type structure on the tables or the white walls.
Victorian furniture is heavy and full of carvings, all wrapped up in rich looking upholstery like velvets, silk, and brocades. Though too much of curves in the furniture and detailing can give a cluttered look, so just to balance it out combine such sofa and chairs with some bold and sleek lined tables.
Walls and Wallpapers
Jewel tones like ruby, sapphire, emerald greens come to life with the Victorian walls. These walls look rich and with neutral-hued curtains will look far better. You can also go for patterned walls like floral ones that are a must in Victorian homes.
Any Victorian interior is incomplete without fancy elements. You may get some mirrors full of glitz and glamour. Pillows and throws in feminine colors with frills in the borders, crystal chandeliers in the living and dining area, crystal sconces in the rest of the rooms, and more will look overwhelming.
