Victorian style, typically referred to as English aristocratic style, doesn’t imply demonstrating the luxury of materials and accessories used in the interior; yet it is certainly about accentuating particular details and elements. Building a Victorian-style interior demands pretty much space, so the regular apartment will hardly fit for global experiments. Thus, nothing but a spacious house would be a perfect zone for marvelous metamorphoses.
Mentioned below is a breakdown of characteristic features:
- A combination of several styles in one interior. For example, Gothic style windows, antique-style furniture, eastern origin accessories and wall decoration in the Baroque style; but what is even more important, all the components fit the entire picture perfectly.
- Expensive furniture made of natural materials. The preference is given to valuable species of wood, e.g. oak. The furniture can also be decorated with gilding and costly fabrics.
- Massive wooden doors and windows frames.
- The Victorian style color palette is represented by dark brown, green, burgundy, beige and lilac tones.
- Parquet floors with expensive carpets on top; plastered ceiling made of stucco and wooden modules.
- Fireplaces, mirrors, various boxes, ashtrays, lamps in the eastern finish, as well as curtains made of expensive fabrics are the accessories decorating the Victorian-style rooms.
Seasoned designers go even further beyond the concept of Victorian-style interior design, extending the grotesque to exterior components. Therefore, in aspiration to create an absolutely special atmosphere, Victorian street lighting elements may be applied in light design projects. As an option, non-strongly marked Victorian projects may feature heritage street lighting fixtures.
