As a girl who enjoys flowers, candles, and beautiful throws a part of me has always been drawn to the romantic look of Victorian decor. So, I thought it might be fun to take a look at some fresh ways to add a Victorian touch here and there without having to fill our homes with velvet, lace, and flowered wallpaper.
I use doilies throughout my home. A bit of lace humors my feminine side. In the photo above the lace throw, doilies on the coffee table, fresh flowers, and floral pillows . . . all add a touch of romance without overpowering the room. Here Victorian meets Country Living and that suits me just fine!
I found this fall tablescape at Victoria Magazine. You’ll love their variety of topics that include favorite things, decorating tips, and even places to visit.
And I absolutely could not resist this beautiful placecard holder, perfect for your Thanksgiving table or with different flowers any time at all.
My searches led me to discover that a dining room sideboard decorated with fresh flowers is typical of Victorian decor. This dining room is a mix of Victorian and traditional design that is perfect to provide elegance to any gathering.
