Victorian window treatments are consistent with era’s total energy, taste in material and fondness for middle class to live like rich. Victorian decor is perhaps most lavish and spectacular of all those that emerged from 19th century culture. Although style namesake died in 1901, there would be a time for before this inner gaze would lose its popularity.
Ornate Victorian window treatments styles are a component of a larger stylistic and cultural character that defined reign of Britain’s Queen Victoria. Ruling between 1837 and 1901, Victoria oversaw a major expansion in Britain’s global wealth and influence, a highlight of imperial power worldwide. This fact is amply demonstrated by sumptuous features of Victorian window curtains, as well as in other decor that surrounded and complemented them.
No Victorian window curtains will appear just right, if surrounding furniture and decorations are inconsistent. Because of abundance projected by Victorian window treatments, should chairs, sofas, sideboards and displays reflect same period? Imperial style chairs covered in plush velor is an option. You can equip lighting elements throughout room with silk shades, hanging antique paintings and discard Victorian rugs on floor. Remember that this era had an affinity for trinkets and baubles that cluttered shelves.
