To properly arrange an apartment in a Victorian style, its owner must have at least an idea of the elements of those interior styles that he would like to see in his apartment. Using elements of exotic styles, it is necessary not to make them prevail, otherwise it will be not Victorian style. he Victorian style is different from the rest of the interior styles in part of the decoration of the walls. It provides only fabrics or wallpaper for finishing of walls. At the same time, they must have a certain pattern: stripes, realistic images of flowers, birds, animals. Volumetric ornaments in the form of bas-relief are much less commonly used. Wood panels made of fine, decorated with all sorts of ornaments, are in use here. These panels should be no more than one third of the wall height. Such an element of the Gothic style as the multi-colored stained-glass windows in the form of arches are often guests of the interior. Stained-glass windows are the most striking and easily recognizable Gothic element in the Victorian style.
Convey the feel of a French Polynesian bungalow with furniture made from teak, bamboo or banana leaf. Furniture made from rattan, wicker or water hyacinth also imparts a tropical feel. Include layers of organic texture with items made from woven seagrass such as area rugs, baskets, chairs and headboards. Provide an extra layer of privacy when needed with matchstick blinds on windows. Plantation-style shutters work well with wood paneling. Grasscloth wallpaper is another option for adding texture and color to walls. Bring in a touch of Tahitian culture with colorful, hand printed pareus. Pareus are brightly colored sheets of fabric that can be wrapped around one's body and worn as a simple dress or draped across a bed, the back of a sofa or the arm of a chair for a splash of color and pattern. Hang a collection of authentic wood Polynesian tiki masks or display carved tiki sculptures on a table or shelf. Hang a framed Polynesian tapa on the wall. Tapas are paintings on fabric, traditionally used as celebration dance dresses depicting tattooed heiva dancers, Marquesan women, aquatic animals and traditional Marquesan tattoo motifs. In lieu of traveling to French Polynesia to acquire these tribal treasures, look for them online.
