Modern Victorian Bedroom

By: H. Iacobacci-Miller


Do your decorating tastes run towards the elegant Victorian style? Why not try a more modern version of the Victorian decor style with a bedding set like this one from Spiegel. This set proves that Victorian elegance does not have to mean over the top frills. Using this set as a base for your room design, you take this bedroom from ultra feminine to a couple's retreat.


For a true feminine, Victorian feel, add in the flowered toss pillows and miniature urns filled with roses in soft shades of pinks. Add soft lace curtains to your windows and use delicate lace doilies on your vanity or nightstands. Fill the room with fragrant, pale colored candles and antique style lamps for soft lighting. Decorate the walls with floral prints in pale colors with gilt framing. Accessorize your vanity or chest of drawers with antique family photos and delicate atomizers that can be found at flea markets and antique stores.

For a less feminine master bedroom, take away the flowered throw pillows and lace curtains . Hang heavier drapes with sheers. Instead of flower filled urns, try miniature statues or sculptures. Replace frilly scented candles with more neutral fragrances. Frame your prints in heavier, deeper stained woods like mahogany or cherry.

With this type of bedding, it's easy to a djust your decorating tastes. As with any bedroom design, comfort is the key. A bedroom should be treated as a special place to retreat. Make it your personal space and customize it to your personal style. Mix and match bedding sets, pillows and linens. You never have to settle for what the bedding set presents.

By taking pieces and matching them to your style, you will create the bedroom of your dreams whether it is a true Victorian, Modern Victorian or even an ultra contemporary.
