Relive the era of elegance and beauty by decorating your room in the Victorian style. The Elizabethans, classical Greek and traditional Georgian patterns used broadly during Victorian reign, enhance bedroom dĂ©cor in a very stylish yet classy way. If youâ€™re looking forward to transform your bedroom to this classy era, then we have created basic guidelines to help you with Victorian dĂ©cor.
To recreate the grandeur of Victorian age, select your furniture in deep wooden finishes. Chairs and table with carved legs and bed with showy wooden affairs fit best for Victorian dĂ©cor. Moreover, you can accent the furniture with throws and pillows, which possess intricate and feminine details, such as beads, ribbon trims and lace. Choosing embroidered and velvet spreadsheets for your bed also add Victorian appeal to your room.
Choosing brocade or velvet drapery to treat the windows is a stylish way to enhance the dĂ©cor in Victorian style. If you donâ€™t want to indulge your bedroom in heavy or too bulky drapery, then you can opt for lighter fabrics, such as lace, silk or madras. In addition, you can pick draperies in embroidered design or floral accents.
Use floral-patterned wallpaper to your bedroom in shades of blue, green and red. Along with bright wallpapers, incorporate cream or ivory colored crown moldings to balance out the color scheme. If you decide not to use wallpapers, then you can pick one common color of the Victorian era, such as purple, red, burgundy and deep green. Also, go for paint finishing techniques like spattering or sponging, as textures happen to be one of the most important attributes of this age.
Adding Victorian 'hanging' paintings captured in a wooden or gold colored frame can take this dĂ©cor to a completely new level. You can also place doilies, candle holders or crystal lamps on the table to create more realistic effect.
Go for hardwood floors or cover the floor space with intricate carpets. The Wilton or Brussels are two historical type carpets used mostly for Victorian dĂ©cor. The former is a cut pile and costly, whereas the latter is a loop-pile type and serves as a cheaper option.
