Be playful with your storage when decorating your bedroom with inspiration from Victorian interiors. We turn to formandbalance that shows us how to add character with built in wardrobes. 

The traditional style alcove draws the eye to the centre of the room for a statement look. Furthermore, this allows the bedroom to feel bigger with added space for a dresser. The mix of neutral greens and browns allows the space to feel Vintage and bespoke to give that time old look and feel.

Accessorise your home with bold floral prints inspired by Edwardian art that is rich in colour and detailed to create your desired look. In a modern Victorian bedroom, the trick is to not over complicate your textures and patterns.

Did you know that purple was one of the most fashionable colours of the Victorian era? If you’re deciding which moody colour to paint your walls, we recommend Victorian Parlour by Valspar Paint which is what @hayley_and_stes_house have coloured their room in.

We love this deep purple colour that transforms the bedroom with warmth and coziness.

The majority of periodic homes had wall panelling, which adds character to the walls by adding depth through 3D grooves added onto the wall.

Break up your bedroom walls by adding half wall panelling that separates your wall colours to create contrast, just like this gorgeous design by @mynortheastterrace. We love this modern take on a Victorian style bedroom using pastels that bring a delicate side to periodic interiors.
