The Victorian style is quite loyal: it can be kept unchanged, and can be customized to meet the needs of modern people. Main trends: feminine forms, gradation of shades of color range from walls to the ceiling with the dominance of some.
The overall atmosphere of the house, decorated in a Victorian style, is very comfortable and hospitable. This emphasis on the wealth and taste of the owners of the house.
Once the middle-class living room was small and combined several functions. For example, the hallway, the reception room and the living room itself. Therefore, even now this room is focused on the individual needs of home owners.
Consider an example of such an adaptation: the living room is a long narrow hallway, combined with a room for rest with a fireplace. Such a transformation preserves a single space, combining several functions.
If the cosiness and intimacy is more important for the owners than the openness of the space, then the living room can be made very small, the chamber sound. Pale neutral colors and a beautiful large mirror contribute to a visual increase in space.
The huge winged windows were one of the main elements of the Victorian living rooms. Therefore, it is not worth replacing them with modern double-glazed windows. The window frame must necessarily be made of hardwood.
If these windows are not available in your room, then you can drape the walls with a curtain cloth. And the fabric is better to choose in one color palette with painting of walls. Because the absence of contrasts increases space.
Many houses in the Victorian style have three-side bay windows. In this cozy space look great dining or writing desks.
French windows were not an obligatory part of the Victorian style, but their availability gives additional bonuses. It can be access to the winter garden or to the terrace. In addition, these windows are an excellent source of natural light.
Living rooms of a large size can be equipped with additional functional loads. Putting a grand piano, we will make a music salon. Having equipped the room with a lot of bookshelves, turn the living room into a library.
A few huge windows in the chic living room add to the atmosphere of the room a feeling of fresh spring air and warm sun rays.
In a small room with the help of wallpaper with a library shelf print adds a stunning effect of depth and volume.
Decorating the living room with a dark wood gives the room an extra strict chic.
Pastel pink-peach and sky-blue shades perfectly match with each other. A tender feeling of femininity and touching naivety.
Decorating the room with a tree in combination with the blue color of the walls, very much emphasizes the home comfort and warmth of this living room.
