Modern Victorian may not be an avant-garde concept anymore, but it is still very unusual – especially when the styles you see rampant are either modern or contemporary. In a sea of conventional styles, Victorian is quite a new face, and it can be extremely challenging to accomplish in a tasteful way. So further, we’ll be featuring stunning Victorian with a modern twist!
1. Bring on the city-scape
This beautiful living room has been artfully styled with subtle classical touches, but the thing that stands out the most is the cityscape of the Singapore skyline in the background. It features a stunning view of the outside that emphasizes the modernity of the space as compared to the Victorian embellishments that make up the majority of the living area.
2. Bunkers with a twist
Typical HDB bedrooms are compact to a fault, but this one takes it up a notch by featuring two unusual bunk styles in a single small space. One of the bunks is tall with a closet/wardrobe underneath. The other bed is a platform with a tall storage space underneath. The formation is very clever and it leaves a lot of room for circulation as well. However, it is the tiny Victorian embellishments that make up the highlight of the design.
3. Tiny nooks
This small sitting nook with a beautiful accent chair and accessories in the image of Victorian furniture look absolutely stunning. But it is the view that they look over that defines the character of the space. Surrounded on all sides by a glass wall, the overall impact of this indoor viewing deck is positively breathtaking.
4. The grand bedroom
Blue is a distinctly modern color, but it does have a very royal appeal. On the other hand, the down bedcovers and tufted headboard are of a completely Victorian descent. So the combination of both these aesthetics is a definite winner when it comes to presenting a wholesome design. This bedroom looks beautiful with a royal Victorian edge.
5. Wall beading and statement art
There are some distinct Victorian design elements that you can use in any modern setting to get a wonderfully decadent effect. Wall beading and statement art are two of those. But if you put the Oriental rug in the mix, it becomes even more relevant and visually appealing. This is why this living room interior design has such an instant and automatic impact.
