Fabrics, fabrics are plentiful and mixed, from upholstered sofas to table skirts. Ruffled pillows and lace window treatments soften rooms throughout the home. Chintz, floral patterns and damasks are common choices, and all can be placed together in the same room.
In place of silk, velvet, or satin, choose synthetic, washable fabrics for window treatments. Formally dressed windows usually have draperies to the floor with contrasting trim topped by a valance or cornice box of perfect proportions. Lighting fixtures of crystal or brass with delicate silk shades create a formal look. An inexpensive chandelier can be spray-painted to get the metallic look that's desired. Chandeliers look elegant and formal in a large living room, formal dining room, bedroom, or small powder room.
Linens. Among the most important "ingredients" in Victorian decor are linens. Use anything with lace, ribbon, embroidery,and ribbons in white or natural. Older or vintage linens can be picked up at thrift stores and yard sales. Discount stores are a good source of inexpensive machine embroidered items as well.
Ornate, rich, and expensive, these are adjectives which usually apply to Victorian home decor. While it can still be ornate and rich, it doesn't have to be expensive. Shopping at thrift stores, and using things that you already possess, you can decorate a Victorian room for less and I can show you how.
