Victorian

Queen Victoria ruled from 1837 to 1901 and the home and family were of the utmost importance during this time. The home was sacrosanct

Eclectic is the word that springs to mind. It's as if those Victorians decided they could have a little bit of everything they fancied and so they did. They combined Elizabethan and Gothic and Rococo and whatever. And it worked.

The secret seemed to be, get as much stuff in as possible and have it luxurious where possible. Lush upholstery, lush curtains with lace and blinds as well.

Large patterned carpets with the wooden border edge sometimes marbled or painted or stained. The most popular wood was mahogany with walnut and satinwood gaining popularity a bit later.

Papier mache began to come in more. Black lacquered with mother of pearl inlay. Big brass bedsteads and huge sideboards and mass produced silverware and porcelain figurines .
