While we might think of a Victorian room as "crowded" or "busy," the Victorians were believers in the adage, "If you've got it, flaunt it." This meant that every photograph, every painting, every decorative gift, every pipe, pipe rack, throw, occasional chair, occasional table and occasional pillow was displayed for all the world to see. Decorating in the Victorian manner can be as posh as you please or strike a balance between the historically correct and modern tastes.
