There was a time when the Victorian style was the height of elegance. It celebrated craftsmanship in woodworking and design. Furniture became the palette of the artisan. You’ll see ornate carvings and trim that is all but nonexistent today. It embraced formal furnishings. But unlike other decors, the Victorian design developed an image problem.
People associated it with extravagance. Then, there was the Industrial Revolution. The home interior design took a 180 with other radically different styles like modern and steampunk. Craftsmen rejected its decorative features with simpler elements. While architecture still exists, the popularity of Victorian design never recovered. It remains one of the least loved styles today.

Itching to see more of this classic look? Visit our gallery of dining rooms to take a step back in time when opulence and maximalism were the order of the day.

Creating the Victorian Look

If you live in a house built between 1837 and 1901, you’re more than halfway there. That was when said-monarch reigned. Your home probably has the unmistakable details of built-in shelves or decorative woodwork. These features are irreplaceable. Make them stand out for the beautiful pieces that they are as our Victorian dining room design ideas shows.

Colors and Patterns

The style can embody either a masculine or a feminine element. Bold patterns like stripes work with this look and give it energy. You can also opt for more delicate designs to soften the mood. Unlike other styles, neutral colors are out of place. Primary colors like white or dark shades of ruby red or black are excellent choices. Think eggplant and, of course, royal blue.

This decor is all about making a statement. Some of these hues still remain popular. You’ll see black, for example, in about 7 percent of dining rooms. You’ll find that wallpaper appears frequently. Boost points if it has an elaborate pattern.

Furnishings

Dark, richly colored woods are the hallmarks of this style. It adds to the formal mood of these dining rooms. Antique furniture is right at home. That special find can do double duty as a focal point. The decor screams opulence whether it’s in the oversized padding of dining room chairs or a decorative chandelier.

The challenge with this style is to retain its class without appearing dated or cluttered. There exists a fine line between Victorian elegance and looking like you raided grandma’s attic. But her heirloom dining room set is certainly welcome here. It’s all about creating the right balance.
