Chic Living Room With Victorian Touches
A Victorian house gets an interior update by way of this stylish living room. A blue-and-white fireplace surround adds color, built-ins provide storage and display space, and an eye-catching onion pendant light from Design Within Reach serves as a focal point. The colors in this space make it vibrant and interesting.
With hand-painted, tree-covered wallpaper, this traditional parlor becomes an enchanting space for entertaining guests and sharing intellectual conversations. A plush white sofa and gilded, 18th century chairs offer plenty of spaces to sit, while a crystal chandelier, lamps and candelabras provide radiant light for any occasion.
Striped walls, an animal print chair and a vibrant red chandelier ensure the dining room has a striking energy of its own. Luxe draperies and a heavy wooden dining table ground the space with formal elegance.
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.
Gorgeous Gold Desk in Luxurious Parisian Master Bedroom Office Nook With Victorian Design
Even the home office space gets the royal treatment in this luxurious Victorian style master bedroom in Paris. A beautiful gold and black desk suits the gold details used to decorate the room. A green leather tub chair with nailhead trim adds a touch of color to the design without disrupting the sophisticated look.
A sultry game room was created in a bonus space above a garage on this lavish estate. A unique sitting area was formed by pairing a velvet patterned chaise longue, hand-carved pedestal side table and damask upholstered side chair. A hand-painted silk Fortuny floor lamp and mica-shaded tall candelabra provide the soft lighting needed during intimate conversations.
In the world of carpet, explains Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors, we are seeing far fewer shags and friezes and more patterned carpets. By using a technique that combines both loops and cut loops — hence the name "cut-and-loop carpet" — manufacturers can create a carpet with patterns that range from subtle to bold.
Neutral colors and historic details create this romantic, inviting outdoor dining space. An ornate black lantern illuminates the gorgeous dining table. A gray pergola frames the adjacent fireplace to create a focal point.
A leather-textured and metal-studded ceiling, hand-carved ceiling medallion and sumptuous silk drapes with double-layered tassel and bullion fringe create a cozy corner for a hand-crafted game table and leather upholstered side chairs. Gas wall lanterns complement the soft glow of the three-tiered hand-painted silk Fortuny chandelier and help create an ambiance of luxury in this one-of-a-kind room.
