Victorian floors are usually high patterned. They use tiles that really show some lavish designs and patterns. You can do this but just make sure that the furniture and the wall will complement with your floor. If you used a heavy patterned floor, then opt for a lighter wall and a lighter carpet so that your room will not look too heavy and bulky.
Most Victorian furniture has ornate wooden carved embellishments with rich fabrics. You can also use seating pieces that are upholstered in brocade, velvet and embroidered. Add some throw pillows with attractive covers. Choose furniture with exposed wood in some parts like on the arm rest, legs and along the upper back of the chair. Use a table that is carved, marble topped, spindled or faux bamboo. You can accent it with traditional-style lamps and porcelain jars with crocheted doilies under it. For a more classical look, place a bookcase that can fill from floor to ceiling.
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.
