Master bedrooms are personal spaces, decorated solely for the comfort of the occupant. The Victorian master bedroom has always been a dream come true. The occupant of a Victorian master bedroom finds comfort in excess, rich colours, a profusion of pattern, and romantic overtones. The fabrics were frilly and lacy. The woods were dark and ornate and the room was filled with memories, collectibles and knick-knacks of friends, family and faraway places. If you want to create a Victorian master bedroom, you can use canopy bed that be made of woods, cast iron or brass. The woods tended to be darker, such as maple, though oak works well too if you want to add a little “brightness” to the room. The bedding needs to be elaborate, with lots of flounces and trims. It’s tough to go over the top in terms of ornate and elaborate when it comes to Victorian bedding.
Hang a wallpaper. Adorn the walls with realistic oil paintings or prints in ornate gilded frames, preferably with at least one in the shape of an oval. Use area rugs such as Orientals, straw-type mats, hooked rugs and machine-loomed rugs with floral or swirly abstract patterns. Choose mirrors for Victorian master bedroom in elaborate golden or stained-wood frames. Display collectibles around the room. Ceramic figurines, framed photographs, jewelled boxes and silver plated hairbrushes and mirrors set a Victorian tone.
