Victorian design styles are often used by people who love the feel of the nineteenth century and are yet implemented with modern conveniences. Common woods often used in cabinets are oak, cherry or sometimes mahogany and traditional colors are preferred. For such designs, contemporary hardware can work but should have a vintage feel for example iron or antique pseudo pewter. On the other hand, Southern and ocean-side area styles favor stucco as it endures well. This design style will typically have accented windows like the bay type windows or will have narrow, long encased or boxed windows. Often the doors are accented with shutters of wood or slate and painted over with vibrant colors. Clay pots and ceramic statues would complement the ceramic tile flooring, which is often seen in Mediterranean design. This design style will often have big open living areas that make good use of the outside weather and the use of brighter colors in fabrics like drapes would accentuate the design.
I get many decorating ideas from reading home magazines or from visiting the websites of professional interior designers that show portfolios of their design projects. These are a couple of the places I look to for inspiration to decorate my home. I notice how furniture is arranged in living room spaces, the color palettes being used and take note of the accent furnishings that complete the décor.
Mirrors: Aside from being decorative mirrors are very functional. They come in various sizes, shapes and designs. A mirror creates an illusion of a larger room. It should reflect an interesting home décor, for example a vase or the garden outside. You simply need a little creativity and experimenting on where to hang it.
