Not one, but many different decorating styles fall under the category Victorian. Creating Authentic Victorian Rooms explains the whys and wherefores of Greek, Gothic, Rococo, Renaissance and Colonial Revival, High Victorian Gothic, the Aesthetic Movement, the William Morris tradition, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and other interior decors of the Victorian era, down to the very last doily.Lavishly illustrated with photographs and engravings from vintage catalogues, Creating Authentic Victorian Rooms offers an armchair excursion through Victorian houses from each period, with representative parlors, dining rooms, and bedrooms shown in detail.

Sections on floor coverings, walls, ceilings, mantels, trim, window treatments, lighting, and furnishings show what is authentic to a particular style.The authors explain why modern people cannot perfectly recreate Victorian-period rooms, and probably wouldnt like the results anyway. But lovers of Victoriana can come close, and with the help of this book can learn how to create beautiful rooms that are true to the spirit of the age.
