Regal Lighting One of the most notable features of a Victorian-style dining room is an elegant and often over-the-top chandelier above the table. A stunning ceiling medallion in this dining room further accentuates the most eye-catching fixture in the space. Design by Lori Dennis Touches of Modernity This elegant and traditional dining room features several Victorian elements: an eye-catching chandelier, ceiling medallion, Oriental-inspired area rug and light, feminine walls. The built-in shelves, accent lighting and colorful, eclectic accessories pull in a touch of fresh, modern style. Design by Barbi Krass Traditional Serenity Rich, warm wood, cocoa-brown walls, floor-to-ceiling draperies and a heavy sideboard create a sophisticated and refined room with traditional details. Victorian style typically features ornate details and patterns, but this dining room from HGTV Dream Home 2004 lets the outside landscape create the room's stunning backdrop. Rich Design One of the most essential pieces of a Victorian-style dining room is a sideboard that provides plenty of room for serving food and displaying flower arrangements. Designer Genoveve Serge created a luxurious space mirroring the key elements of that time period, including an elegant and extra-long sideboard designed for hosting gatherings, creamy wall coverings, ornate gold trim, rich fabrics and crystal lighting. Historic Style Straight from 19-century Charleston, S.C., this charming dining room portrays a view of East Coast history and Victorian style. Rich wood furnishings, heavy window treatments and brass light fixtures ensure this room keeps its classic elements. Design by Jennifer Nilsen Contemporary Elegance With a chic and refined appearance, this dining room pulls in a mostly contemporary look with touches of Victorian design. The luxurious gold and crystal chandelier, floor-to-ceiling window treatments and sideboard mirror represent the defining features of traditional design while using the table, accessories and area rug to deliver a contemporary look. Refined Minimalism Although not typically known for having a minimalistic look, this Victorian-style dining room avoids accessories, patterns and over-the-top fixtures. However, the rich wood furnishings, antique grandfather clock and ornate clawfoot dining set deliver a genuine view of the era with a contemporary edge. Feminine Appeal Luxurious period lighting and rich gold fabric create an ultra-feminine dining room ready for entertaining. An open floor plan and built-in bar extend the dining room amenities to the next room for extra space. Rope lighting around the ceiling may not resemble the Victorian era, but it certainly complements the crystal fixtures. Design by Lina Khatib


Little details like bedding, pillows and the fabric you use in your bedroom can alter its vibe completely, and a hint of gold along with white is ideal for the modern-Victorian bedroom. Wallpaper is another great way of trying out a hint of this classic style, and if you are not happy with the result, changing the backdrop becomes a whole lot easier. There are times when a secretary desk or a cool, Victorian-era bench seem sufficient in a shabby chic or eclectic bedroom to give it a predominantly Victorian feel. Modest or grandiose or somewhere in between – it is your personality that defines this choice!


Finding that right balance between Victorian elegance and modern aesthetics can be a tricky task, and often a blend of both elements gravitates more towards contemporary tendencies. Since bedroom décor choices have remained more or less constant across decades even though their styles and finishes have vastly varied, it is pretty easy to mix and match. A modern bed frame coupled with a vintage nightstand, a Victorian-era wardrobe, an antique room divider and elegant lighting can paint a picture of serenity draped in Victorian beauty.


You might not really be fond of Victorian style, but there definitely is one thing that every modern bedroom can learn from this era – the way that it turns the bed into the showstopper of the room. Many contemporary bedroom designs forget this, as they focus too much on décor and accessories that surround the bed. If four-poster beds are not your thing, then adding some drapery to give the bedroom Victorian overtones is a fine alternative. It does add a hint of majestic beauty and is perfect to bring out the princess in you!


While there are occasions when the bedroom needs to embrace a single style, on other occasions, Victorian décor fits in perfectly with a soothing modern backdrop. What you need can vary from something as simple as a chair, dressing table and mirror with Victorian panache to a room where every furniture choice draws from that era gone by. What works in some rooms might simply fail to translate to other settings. So, try out different permutations before you find this elusive balance that works for your bedroom.


One thing you cannot say about Victorian-era design and its inimitable style is that it is mundane. Nothing is ever understated in these settings, with ornate patterns, decorative ceilings and intricate designs becoming very much the staple of the style. Of course, Victorian style is neither constant nor is it a homogenous, standardized style across the globe. Different regions of the world, architects and local eccentricities have shaped its various versions over time. And in the modern world, it still finds a place alongside the sleek, contemporary styles as it adapts and evolves.


As the name reveals, this style features the splendor of the English Queen Victoria. And today also this style is characterized by massive furniture, mostly of mahogany wood and motives of decoration are always flowers and animals. Ornaments like chandeliers and sumptuous carpets, paintings and mirrors with frames rich are always welcome. This is the right style for your bedroom. Make it lovely and charming using Victorian themed details.


Imagine large four poster beds, lace, velvets and brocades everywhere you look, oriental carpets, and romantic touches of roses and lace. Is this the kind of bedroom you dream of? If you do and your dreams have been crushed by your budget, take heart! You can have your romantic Victorian bedroom with a little creativity and a lot of recycled charm.

3. AccessoriesAccessories can make or break your room. For Victorian rooms, lace trims, roses, crochet, and vintage or reproduction vases can be arranged on tables and bureaus. Buying reproduction pieces at yard sales or thrift stores can help with the budget, but adding a little do-it yourself project like the rose print lampshade. But be sure to follow principles that will ensure that your accessories successfully walk that fine line between design and clutter.
