The curtains of the Victorian era were heavy and covered from ceiling to the floor, for their full length. You can do the same, and match the color of the curtains with that of the walls, to make the room appear bigger than it is. Also, decorate your house with a plethora of embroidery laden pillows and rugs that are placed at a number of places, to provide a true Victorian look.

In your discordant room, try painting the trim a matte or eggshell and the walls high gloss―this works especially well when there is extensive trim work like wainscoting, picture rails, and chair rails. Another great discordance is the pairing of a high-gloss ceiling with a matte floor―for this effect to work, the floor can't be carpeted, which is normally matte anyway. Try unpolished marble or distressed wood instead.

This design is very refreshing, and adds a touch of glamor to the house, if used wisely. Decorating a house needs a good eye for design, and one should be good with color combinations and balancing contrasts. If you end up making a mistake, don't worry; you could always undo it by neutralizing it with solid colors. Wherever polka dots, stripes, or any other designs are concerned, always remember to have at least one or two elements that are in solid, one-tone, neutral shades.

Use fabrics with unique patterns and texture. Opt for all-weather fabrics for curtains in case of an open porch. For screened porch, use see-through bamboo blinds or dark-colored fabric curtains. Make sure that the fabric is sun-resistant, or else it will fade over time. Using matchstick roll-ups or rattan roller blinds is a great idea to protect the furnishings from rain and sun. Moreover, these give a natural touch to the porch.
