You may have fun collecting and displaying family photos and you had it framed. It is okay to have photo frames but it might cause some clutter in the living room when not placed well. Choose photos that you want to place in a frame. The rest should go to your photo album and scrapbooks. Place your photo albums and scrap books in one location. You can also use a digital photo frame for your pictures.
For your living room, choose warm and neutral colors. Give it a unique texture by using faux. Choose colors that will look best as an accent. You can use bright colors for your living room. Just make sure that the colors won't mismatch. It is better to have an open space for your living room. You can arrange your furniture in a central island if you have enough space. In the corner, you can place a tall plant or a sculpture. A more open space can allow better traffic. It could look better and lighter, too.
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.
