The appeal lies in its simplicity. By combining comfortable, worn, loved pieces, a room becomes warm and inviting. There's no attempt at pretense here.
Boxes. Small boxes or tins dressed up with fabric and old ribbon and lace remnants look wonderful displayed in your Victorian room. Beads and rhinestones from old broken jewelry are also a great way to add glamour to your room. Rose china. Mismatched china or hand-painted plates from thrift stores grouped to create a wall display will add a romantic touch to your new Victorian decor. The floral themes bring a nostalgic look.
Buy Used. Garage sales, flea markets, and consignment stores are a great place to buy slightly-used pieces. You'll be able to save a lot of money over new retail and maybe even have higher quality than you'd get otherwise. You can often negotiate prices to fit into your budget. Because most people do buy new baby items, they're often little used and near-new.
Furniture and accessories should look as though they're adorned with hand-carved accents and gold- or silver-leafing. Soft goods such as upholstery, pillows, and window treatments made of sensible fabrics can be adorned with trims. Tassels accent pillow corners and drapery swags, fringe is often used on the bottoms of upholstered pieces, and many patterned fabrics of different textures and weaves are used together. By simply adding a row of 6" fringe to the bottom of a plain colored sofa, you'll have a more formal look.
