An Elegant Victorian Living Room
Victorian style is defined as decorating the same way as people did during the Victorian Era. Living rooms decorated in a Victorian style typically have a lot of ornamentation, and the owner’s interests are reflected strongly throughout the room. The Victorian living room is essentially a formal yet busy room, a living space that in its time was a little-used show room, where a family showed off its finest pieces. The Victorian living room is very orderly and have a lot of embellishment. If you want to create a stunning Victorian living room of your own, you must be very particular about ornate designs to produce dramatic visual effects. The major consideration in designing a Victorian living room is the colors to be used. Colors that can be used can either be light or dark depending on the aura and ambiance the owner of the house wishes to achieve.
If you would opt for vibrant colors, make sure that you use them in dark and rich shades to create a feeling of depth and warm atmosphere. If you prefer lighter colors, make sure that you choose influential shades to recreate a Victorian ambiance. Next, the decorations and decors to be used in the Victorian living room should also be planned carefully. The staple decorations should include huge sweeping pieces that have complex designs, heavy fabrics that bear elaborate patterns, pieces of stained glasses and china pieces, large and deep-colored flowers, and intricate designed laces. And, to complete the mood, make sure that you include pieces of furniture that exude romanticism, drama, and elegant sensuality. Woodcarvings in mahogany that come in velvet adornments are perfect for this.
