By: H. Iacobacci-Miller

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

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.
a less feminine master bedroom, take away the flowered
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.

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.
