Use elaborate window treatments like swags, valances and tiebacks. Use fabrics that are silk, brocade and damask. Trim these with tassels, cords, braid and crystals to add more embellishments. You can also have a stained glass window if you are willing to spend money for it. To get that Victorian look, use decorative mouldings, ornaments, plasterwork and arches for your walls. Arches can create a grand look while plasters and mouldings give that look of authenticity. These things may cost a lot but would certainly give you the look you want. But if you want to save money, you can opt for walls with deep rich colors like red. You may also apply unique wallpapers with metallic or ornate prints.
To do away with clutter, have enough storage spaces. Create smart storage areas in the living room that will make your room look neat and organized. Think of a way that it can add beauty to the area. If you notice that there is still some clutter, maybe it is time for you to add some storage space. You can have magazine racks for your reading materials. The key to having a neat storage space it to place only the number of items that can be accommodated in your storage area. Place the excess in other storage spaces.
If you have plants in your home, don't place it just anywhere. You would not want your living room to look like a jungle. You can have a plant stand that has a design that suits your style. You can also use decorative pots. When placing it in your living room, make sure that it would not look distracting. Organize your plants well to avoid a crowded look. The living rooms you have seen above had great ways of keeping all their belongings by having smart storage spaces.
