Make your home a Victorian creation!!

Victorian style is known for its ornamentation and orderliness. This style of interior designing emerged in the age between1837-1901 and was a sign of economic prosperity which came to the middle class people under the rule of Queen Victoria. Therefore, this style was named after the queen. To showcase both cultural interests and fashionable beliefs, the houses of those times were cramped with furniture, fabrics and accessories as bareness was a sure sign of poor taste. We give you some suggestions to make your place a Victorian piece.

The right colour-Rich dark colours with a warm and subdued look are the perfect choice for a Victorian design. Shades of teal, plum, mustardy yellows and gold, deep rich walnut and mahogany woods add a classic look to your interior. Wood work should be of dark tones so that it goes well with other room colours. You can also give your rooms different colours because in Victorian style one room has nothing to do with the other.

Victorian Furniture- Choose a furniture with exposed wooden legs and arms to add to the eclectic look. Ornately carved wooden chair can be placed in a corner of your living room set to give it a Victorian look. Also windows and mirrors carved with beautiful designs can be added. To get a more classical look traditionally designed lamps and tables can also be added.
