The living room is the place where you entertain your guests and where you entertain yourself as well. Usually, the living room is the first part that people could see which is the reason why it is the most well-decorated area. There are times when this area is turned into a home theatre and sometimes, it is a study area. Most of the time, family and friends are gathered in the living room. Bonding time would indeed be great especially if you are sitting and lounging in a well-designed area.
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.
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.
