Your home can still achieve the functional contemporary appeal, combined with the classic lavishness of the Victorian style by using bright, clean colors to create a sense of optimism and calmness. This will bring a balanced contrast to the ornate and cluttered furniture and will add to the dramatic flair. Today’s trend emphasizes on fewer colors. Most modern Victorian homes have two or three colors, as opposed to the usual five paint colors. To add more practicality, wallpapers can have simpler color schemes to allow for a wider range of decoration and for easier upgrading.
