Out of the 916,645, living rooms and 18 styles analyzed, .35 percent (or 3,253) have a Victorian design.

A Closer Look at Victorian Design

When you take a look through our Victorian Design Gallery, you will notice that some design ideas are reflective of traditional Victorian living rooms while other design ideas are a mix of modern styles with traditional Victorian styling.

Traditionally, Victorian living rooms are formal and ornate with dark and rich colors, upholstered furniture, and heavy tapestries. Many of the common features of a Victorian style living room are similar to those found in Traditional design. While some homeowners may love the idea of having a formal living room, others want something a little more comfortable and casual.

Use of Color

Victorian colors are warm and subdued, including deep brown, teal, plum, gold, burgundy, and “dusty” hues. Traditionally, blue, green, and gray were used in Victorian living rooms to mask the soot and other stains from fireplaces and coal dust.

Today, painting your living room with similar colors may be too dark, but you can always use traditional Victorian colors as accents like trim, pillows, or on the upholstery on a chair.

Patterns

The Victorian design incorporates patterns throughout the room. Elaborate floral patterned wallpaper is common as are stained glass windows. While many homeowners aren’t interested in hanging wallpaper, there are ways to bring patterns into your living room through the fabric, paint, and other materials.

If you don’t have stained glass windows in your home, you can find light fixtures or glass pieces to hang in your window, as a modern twist on a traditional and unique Victorian feature.

Furniture

Traditional Victorian furniture is heavy, formal, and upholstered. Although this type of furniture is part of the Victorian design, you don’t have to fill a room with bulky furniture. You can showcase certain pieces, such as a leather ottoman, a velvet couch, or a wall of bookshelves. Choose furniture that is functional and comfortable but still has a formal look and feel.

Like many designs, the Victorian style can be traditional or have a twist of Contemporary. It all depends on what works best for you and your home.
