Dark and bright shades with rich colors are used to get a Victorian look. Woodwork should be of dark tones also so that it can go along the other shades in the room. The use of red, burgundy, violet, yellow and blue is very common in a Victorian room. But white can still be used as long as you use Victorian furniture.
A formal living room gives relaxation to a business-busy person. Chandeliers add elegance to one's living room along with a lamp or two. Furnitures in a living room makes a difference. The use of contrast of colors in the choice of furnitures is a good idea too. Minimalistically designed living rooms also becomes a cool choice for those who are into it. Modernity doesn't have to always look colorful.
Shapes are important for whatever you will place in your living room. Usually, rectangles are used for sofas, windows, rugs, and others. But you can still balance that by using other shapes for some items like round throw pillows, free form sculpture, oval coffee table and others. Having a huge window will allow natural light to enter the living room. It is an advantage for you can have enough light during the day. Use blinds or curtains so that you can cover the window during the night.
