Country Victorian Style
The Country Victorian style hearkens back to the decor of the Victorians'
cottages and vacation homes out of the city. The style is characterized by an interesting variety
of pastel colors such as mauve, pinks, pale greens, peaches and blues in
floral or fruit patterned fabrics. Materials such as wood, brass and iron are key elements in a Country Victorian
room. Use a dark oak chest, an old chest with hand grained wood finishes, or plain wall bookcases to display family
heirlooms. Painted wicker, cottage flowers and herbs, lightly covered windows draped with gauzy fabrics and
laces add to the Country Victorian look. Place handmade rugs on the floors, and drape blankets or embroidered rugs over armchairs. Accessorize with
dried flower arrangements.
