Wood furniture will usually have a mix of straight and curved lines. There may be light carving details as well. While wood pieces will often be finished with darker stains, a traditional room might also use lighter woods as long as the lines of each piece are classic.
Use on pillows, tablecloths, curtains, or upholstery for small occasional chairs. Victorian homes tended to be overly decorated, and this included placing doilies and lace over nearly every surface. This helped reflect the rich status of the homeowner and showed off their style and taste.
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.
Don't just look at baby items. You might see a great chest of drawers or an antique rocking chair that would be perfect for the nursery. Look at the basic structure and stability of the piece. You can always refinish or paint it to go in your particular space.
