Two ornately decorated coffee tables are the centerpiece of this contemporary Victorian sitting room. Neutral colors offset the highly decorative room, filled with bouquets of flowers and carved candle holders, to offer a more contemporary take on Victorian design.
A special resting place was created in a second floor hallway that leads to an outdoor balcony overlooking this Houston estate. Oversized chairs, a wood pedestal center table, brass side tables and abstract artwork complement the antique wool area rug and custom draperies in a pink Ikat print.
Pink Striped Victorian Sitting Room With Floral Accents
This pale pink Victorian sitting room is a hub of floral furniture and curtains in front of the pink and gray striped wallpaper. A camelback sofa has throw pillows with a matching pattern from the upholstered wing chair and sits around the round, tufted ottoman with a fringed bottom. The tasseled pillows mirror the tasseled floor-length curtains for a fully patterned room.
Much of the home's main living quarters have an open concept design broken up by a charming red brick chimney with fireplaces on either side. Here, that's demonstrated with a sitting room and the kitchen.
Crown molding and a large fireplace instantly make this Victorian sitting room seem grand and elegant. An ornate area rug and plush champagne-colored sofas help balance the space, while a striped ottoman completes the lavish look.
The main entry shows off another of the interesting chimneys that both divide and add lots of visual interest and texture to the room. Beautiful Oriental rugs further mark off the space for different purposes.
Golden light fixtures hover like ethereal globes in the sky of this elegant sitting room, one of many living areas in the mansion. Dark walls, ceiling and floor majestically set them off as well as the room's gold trim.
