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.
Hang ancestral portraits and paintings in the wall with wooden frames. Also install a crystal chandelier overhead your living room. Use free standing lamps with decorative shades and brass stands. For added look, hang Victorian-style plates or silver wares, place candle sconces and mirrors with elaborate gold or wood carved frames. You can even add a grandfather's clock for a more classic look.
Use lavish designs of fabric anywhere you could. You can even use it as wallpaper if you want. Light fabric will look good for your wall paper although it would really cost a lot but using such will surely create a grandeur look for your living room. Using these two will add a Victorian touch to your living room. Using stained glass windows or stained glass accents add a bright mood in the area. The fireplace made with stone or polished marble can make your living room look classic.
