Victorian Style Bedroom Décor Design
The majority of people consider that the Victorian style of bedroom has a vintage but traditionally an elegant feel to it. The Victorian era ranges from around the 1830’s up until the year 1900 duringwhich time Queen Victoria was on the throne in England. There are many variations and fashions of the true style of a Victorian bedroom design but the following factors will enable you to come up with your own Victorian style bedroom décor design.
The Victorian bed is typically a flamboyant wooden affair although they were also manufactured from either cast-iron, brass or in certain cases, a combination of both of these metals. You can probably find a skilled woodworker to reproduce or modify a full size bed to a queen size or combining twin beds to create a king size. But if you are working with a limited budget, you’ll find there are a large choice of modern reproduction Victorian style beds available without spending a fortune.
The Victorian bed should be ornately fitted with canopies, drapes, showy pillows, flounces, ribbons and various trims. You should check out your local fabric stores to find out if they stock period type quilts.
It is vital that you include in your Victorian style bedroom décor design either a marble-topped cabinet or table or maybe a wicker or bamboo table, with round or skirted tables as nightstands. It is worth having a look around some antique shops to see if you can find any carved wooden tables to complement your Victorian design.
It is important that you have the correct lighting when decorating a Victorian bedroom. The classic ginger-jar style is an ideal choice, or light fittings made from porcelain, crystal or brass. A great idea is to use old candlestick holders that have been converted to table lamps. A crocheted doily under each table lamp will give you the authentic Victorian period look.
Dressers or a chest of drawers should be manufactured from dark oak (stained), mahogany or walnut and typically be decorated with carvings, with either elaborate brass or carved wooden drawer pulls. You might just be lucky enough to find one with a candle stand, possibly a tilting mirror and a marble top fitted to it.
To achieve that beautifully genuine Victorian look to your bedroom the flooring should include Oriental area rugs or maybe straw type mats. You can if you wish use machine loomed rugs with a floral or an abstract pattern on them.
When you are giving thought to the accessories to include in your Victorian bedroom décor, you should include period pictures (botanicals, children, maidens or animals). Also a gold painted or stained wood framed elaborately carved mirror will look good in your design. Fresh flowers in period style vases along with some Victorian collectibles which you can find in old antique shops, will also add to the period feel.
Dress your windows with full curtains or drapes decorated with either ruffles, valances, braids, laces, bows and tassels. The materials for your curtains or drapes should include either velvet, brocade or delicate florals. So deciding on your Victorian style bedroom décor design should be quite easy if you do a little research. Once you’ve made your plans you will be able to create the bedroom of your dreams.
