The color schemes used for the main rooms such as living, bedroom, library, etc., are all formed by using pastel shades, such as light purple, pink, light green, light blue, and peach. These can be combined with darker shades of the same color for added effect.
All the wooden things have to be painted in darker shades such as purple brown and hunter's green. From the period 1880 to 1890, the wooden windows, doors, and stairs were painted in white color, to provide the houses, an airy and relaxed feel.
Victorian homes are known for their excessive use of accessories. Some of the popularly used ones, which you can include in your home are antique items, Victorian era prints, dried flowers, seashells and pebbles, porcelain dogs, and painted plates. Victorian style houses are incomplete without the beautiful brass lighting fixtures.
These ideas are not easy to implement, as you need a substantial budget to get the right look. Also, Victorian style decoration is meant only for larger homes, and smaller houses may look cluttered with heavy fabric and accessories. Only if both these things are in place, you should consider this style of home decoration.
