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.
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.
The Living Room gives the next impression for the whole house design after looking at its exterior. It is where visitors are received and most of the time becomes the venue for long talks. This part of the house must give relaxation apart from the bedroom and this is where several designs come out. Designers or home owners would either want it colorful in style or minimal. Our first post for today will tour you into different living rooms we have gathered from the web.
