Go back in time with the dark Victorian decor trend

With searches for Victorian decor rising by 850% in the last month alone, it is safe to say that Victoriana is having a bit of a moment. But while Victorian clothing with its high lace collars and puffy shoulders is widely known, the era’s decor style not so much. So what is the Victorian home decor trend? 

If you’re a diehard minimalist then Victorian decor is probably not going to be to your liking. The era spanning the years 1837 to 1901 is defined by a dark and moody aesthetic. It is a maximalist style of bold (but still dark) florals, patterns and colours. It might also be tied to the grandmillennial interiors trend that’s all about nostalgia and looking to our grandparents’ traditional houses for home decor ideas.
