No one could doubt the influence of Queen Victoria during her reign for it even changed the homes of the people in her era. People who belonged to the middle class decorated their homes with grandeur pride showing their status in the society. This brought people to redesign their homes with revisions of Gothic, rococo and Oriental styles. You can see eclectic mixture of style, heavily upholstered furniture, excessive ornamentation, realistic portrays of flowers, birds and animals, wooden carvings, with silver, brass and golden accents.
It is important for your living room to be well-lighted. You can use overhead spots like track lighting to highlight some areas. You may also use pin lights and some recessed lighting. You could also place a table lamp which can also be an added decoration and even some floor lamps. Do not place light near the television for it already emits light.
Toys can be seen in the living room especially when the kids stay there during the day. You can do away with this by having a playroom. All their toys will be placed inside the room and they do not need to carry it anywhere for everything is already there. Inside the playroom, have a children's table, a bookcase and some storage places for their toys to make sure that it will also look organized.
