Renovating a period property can be an absolute delight, especially if you have a genuine interest in the period which you are researching. I have a passion for all things period drama, so my ideal project is to immerse myself in a bygone era and re-create a room which might look something like how the real thing must have been.

Obviously no-one wants to be too authentic and get rid of central heating or indoor plumbing, but there is nothing wrong with a bit of nostalgia and a real fire for example looks fantastic whether you need it to heat the room or not. Bedrooms are transformed by using a genuine fireplace into a romantic setting where the bedroom furniture glows. A Victorian themed bedroom is the ideal period for this kind of look and you can really go to town with dark colours and heavy drapes.

Fitted bedrooms have no place in a re-make of a traditional Victorian bedroom, but you have plenty of choice when it comes to decorating styles. Heavily patterned wall coverings are very popular, featuring reds, greens and motifs from nature such as leaves and birds. Ornament is ostentatious in every way, from moulded cornices to the fancy patterns on the teacups – wherever there is a surface it can be decorated! Canopy beds and hugely appealing for this kind of style too: entertain fantasies of grandeur and if your room is large enough then go the whole hog and get a four-poster.

There are a wide range of places to source Victorian furniture and decorative items from, some will supply restored and re-claimed original pieces, whilst other items are reproduction which can be equally as good. Enjoy yourself shopping for your Victorian themed room and why not indulge yourself in some good wholesome dressing up too!
