Victorian floors are usually high patterned. They use tiles that really show some lavish designs and patterns. You can do this but just make sure that the furniture and the wall will complement with your floor. If you used a heavy patterned floor, then opt for a lighter wall and a lighter carpet so that your room will not look too heavy and bulky.
What makes up your living room is the furniture in it. Choose furniture that will make your living room have an exciting look. It would be better if your upholstered pieces are of the same color and fabric. Choose the right sizes, too. Do not use oversized furniture if your space is just small. Also, do not use too small furniture if your space is big. If you think that you will be engaged in rearranging, then you can opt for furniture with wheels.
Most Victorian furniture has ornate wooden carved embellishments with rich fabrics. You can also use seating pieces that are upholstered in brocade, velvet and embroidered. Add some throw pillows with attractive covers. Choose furniture with exposed wood in some parts like on the arm rest, legs and along the upper back of the chair. Use a table that is carved, marble topped, spindled or faux bamboo. You can accent it with traditional-style lamps and porcelain jars with crocheted doilies under it. For a more classical look, place a bookcase that can fill from floor to ceiling.
