Inexpensive Alternative: Pre-Fab Bookcases. A less-expensive alternative to built-in cabinetry is standard, pre-fab bookcases, such as IKEA's Billy Bookcase. The key to making these plain pieces look great is all in the installation.
Trims and UpholsteryOne of the best sources for trims and upholstery for a Victorian bedroom is the thrift store. Old damask or velvet drapes can be used to make rich upholstered chairs or pillows. (Even a dress - remember Scarlet O'Hara?) And lace doilies or remnants from projects will trim pillows or lampshades. You can even find hand embroidered pillow cases that will add to the nostalgic feel of your room.
An ottoman is essential for comfort. Add a large wooden or rattan tray to convert it to a coffee table. Light woods are often used for furniture pieces and wood flooring. Oak and pine are the most popular, either painted or finished with a flat, low luster varnish to protect the grain.
Don't Forget the Accessories and Special Touches. Many formal interiors have carved mirrors hanging in matched pairs. They help to define a space and enlarge the visual feeling of the space. Instead of gold-leafing, highlight details with shiny gold paint.
