No one could doubt the influence of Queen Victoria during her reign for it even changed the homes of the people in her era. People who belonged to the middle class decorated their homes with grandeur pride showing their status in the society. This brought people to redesign their homes with revisions of Gothic, rococo and Oriental styles. You can see eclectic mixture of style, heavily upholstered furniture, excessive ornamentation, realistic portrays of flowers, birds and animals, wooden carvings, with silver, brass and golden accents.
Your living room will be more dramatic if you place an accent wall. Modify the color to match the color of your living room. If you used cool tones, you may opt for bright teal or green for the wall accent. You may use yellow or orange if your living room has warm colors. You can use red, orange or calming dark gray for a contemporary look and burgundy, green tones and brown tones for a traditional look.
If you have observed that trash has accumulated in the living room, it might be time for you to place a wastebasket to trim down clutter. This is applicable especially if you have kids in the house who would be throwing their trash anywhere. Be smart in choosing a wastebasket and in placing it in the living room. Make sure that it would fit in the room's decor. Always deodorise your trash bags to avoid foul smell. Also, use one that has a cover or a lid so that it would not be ugly to look at.
