Richly designed Victorian home interior decorating ideas

Victorian home interior decorations are designs of a bygone era that still holds sway over modern designs because of the ostentatious way it was done. The decorations are of Gothic designs with a combination of highly colored patterns and designs that depict large and small flowers that are so feminine. Furniture comes in heavy proportions and elaborate ornamentation and carving are the order of the day. These designs may be too elaborate in the modern setting but they do look fabulous when done right. They exude an air of richness and sophistication and sometimes decadence that would always attract a following. Here are some of the Victorian home decoration ideas that we think best represents that era.

2. Doors

The tall double doors with the circular design in the middle are typical door designs during the Victorian era. Reproduced in this modern door it still has a magic of its own that made the entryway fantastic.

Chandeliers that were used during the Victorian era were rich in embellishments or design and always crystal clear to create a dazzling jeweled look. The chandeliers could also be combined with black and create a gothic look.

 8. Pendant Chandeliers

Pendant chandeliers became the other design for lights during the Victorian era. They were called this because they looked like pendants on a necklace and the crystal clear design makes it look like a piece of jewelry.

 9. Pedestal Sink

This bathroom looks so Victorian from the pedestal sink, tiles and mirror. The focal point though is the toilet seat that is so richly embellished in heavy ornamentation.
