The Victorian era, named for Queen Victoria, who ruled England from 1837 to 1901. This era was marked by peace and prosperity in England, and inspired a new wave of engineering and design. In fact, the influence was felt far and wide, including the United States. You can still see evidence of Victorian-era architecture in cities like San Francisco, where ornate details and color are key.
Use Paint. It's no secret that paint is the budget decorator's number one tool in transforming a space. With just a few dollars and a little elbow grease a whole room can be given an entirely new look.
In the Victorian era there tended to be a lot of pattern on the walls as well, like wallpaper (especially flocked wallpaper). Advancements in technology allowed for inexpensive decor. Here is a great site to help discover some good color palettes, patterns and designs for a Victorian home.
Inexpensive Alternative: Ready-Made Curtain Panels. Ready-made window treatments have come a long way. Whereas they used to be plain and only available in a few colors and styles, they now come in tons of different varieties. If you want to save money but you still want a custom look, find some ready-made panels and then update them to suit your room. You can sew on trim, add a ribbon detail with double-sided fabric tape, or even alter the size if you're handy with a sewing machine.
