This bedroom features a perfectly blended modern and Victorian counterparts. All the design elements have been combined so expertly that you can barely tell where one style begins and the other one ends. However, it’s clearly the headboard tufting and the wainscot style wall beading on the feature wall that add a true Victorian edge to the whole design.



 2. Light fixtures

The modern Victorian aesthetic can be quite challenging to imbue in a largely contemporary design – especially when you’re working with a small space. Take the example of this closet. There are limited ways in which you can add classical touches to it, but the light fixture in the center makes for the perfect design element to do so. The beautiful drop chandelier hanging from the cage is such a great and impressive Victorian addition to the otherwise modern space.


 3.  Area rug patterns

Many homeowners underestimate the impact of a beautifully patterned area rug. These especially come in handy when you’re trying to evoke a Victorian style aesthetic in a largely modern space. You can choose one in the relevant color scheme with the right geometric or arabesque patterns to add beauty and classic panache to your rooms.


 4. Where accessories matter

Sometimes, all you need is a combination of small and large accessories to add a nice touch to your interior designs. This dressing-come bathroom is an excellent example of it. The plush, tufted dresser chair, the classically timeless light fixtures and the stylish mirror are all an ode to the Victorian style that are adding beautiful touches to the otherwise modern design.


5. Breezy and vogue

So as far as some major design and décor elements are concerned, it’s better to be understated.
