The Ultimate Victorian Home Decor - Original Fine Art

What is Victorian Home Decor?

Victorian home decor, an exquisite style that emerged during the reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901, encapsulates the grandeur and opulence of the Victorian era. This decor style is characterized by its intricate attention to detail and an embrace of ornate, elaborate designs. Victorian interiors typically feature rich, deep color palettes, combining dark reds, greens, blues, and purples, often used in lush fabrics like velvet and silk. The furniture in Victorian homes is heavy and made from dark, carved wood, often featuring intricate floral patterns and elaborate ornamentation. Walls are frequently adorned with ornamental wallpapers, often floral or damask patterns, and the floors are covered with Persian or Oriental rugs. Accessories play a crucial role in Victorian decor, with rooms often decorated with an abundance of antiques, candle holders, embroidered pillows, and paintings. The overall aesthetic of Victorian home decor is one of abundance and sensory richness, reflecting the complex social and cultural attitudes of the time.

Victorian Home Decor

Victorian home decor refers to the style of interior design popular during the Victorian timeframe of 1837 to 1901.  In her book “The Victorian Home”, author Ellen M. Plante states: “Victorians carefully designed their homes to create a look of comfort and opulence.

Victorian Bedroom Ideas

In her book titled “The Victorian Home”, Ellen M. Plante states: “Private spaces devoted to rest and relaxation, Victorian bedrooms are today viewed as unabashedly romantic retreats.  In appraising the subtle charm of the old-fashioned boudoir, we treasure the cozy fireplaces, large inviting beds, massive dressers with elegant mirrors and marble-tops, sundry grooming items, sentimental photographs, and other cherished possessions. 

Living Room Ideas Victorian Painting

Stunning.  Gorgeous.  Luxurious.  Today’s living room was yesteryears legendary parlor.  Plante writes: “The Victorian parlor – the design masterpiece of the nineteenth-century home – conveyed social standing and an appreciation of culture. 

Decorate Victorian House With Art

The late Victorian period (around 1870 to 1900) was a time of great excitement, social change, and material wealth.  New heights and experiences to decorate a Victorian house were achieved.  No corner of the Victorian house was left bare and no wall was unadorned.  When describing the late period Victorian house, Plante states: “Personal mementos and favorite keepsakes were on display; “homeyness” was paramount in each and every room, and artistic liberties created breathtaking settings.”
