Give yourself over to nineteenth-century flair with Victorian-inspired bedding fit for a duchess. Sink into a four-post bed ensconced in gauzy curtains, and let an antique floral print comforter fill your space with plum-colored blooms. Or, embrace porcelain shades with blush pink bedding, like a quilted faux fur bedspread. A whitewashed room divider tucked in the corner provides interest and authenticity to a look modeled after this romantic era.

There are so many ways to approach this elegant style, none of which require you to decorate with dark damask wallpaper or a clunky wardrobe. Instead, work in some contemporary elements for a modern take that still employs all the luxury and attention-to-detail that characterized the Victorian period. Ruffle bedding, for example, lends a feminine flourish to your surroundings. With its tailored fit and cotton fabric, however, this bedspread is also both compact and breathable. Place a slender candlestick lamp on a wrought iron table at your bedside; slim tripod legs bring an unexpectedly current accent to a historical space.

What if your room is filled mostly with matte finishes: a brass bed frame painted a creamy off-white, perhaps? Or a set of wall plaques arrayed in chalk pastel flowers? You can create a bit of contrast with glossy satin bedding. Light gently bouncing off their meticulously-quilted designs, these bedspreads grant intrigue to an otherwise flat room. How about a daybed cover in amethyst purple? Or light pink bedding in rose quartz topped with lustrous pearl pillows?

Although the word "Victorian" usually brings darker shades to mind, you don't have to adhere strictly to the color palettes of yesteryear. Warm up your surroundings with a flax yellow quilt featuring vintage rose patterns. Shades of crimson and pink found in the petals can then be transferred to the stylized cherry blossoms in an abstract print hanging over the bed. Or, go for dusty rose bedding you can pair with sateen sheets in a soft ivory or light cream. An off-white hue with an aged look is also perfect for a pouf at the foot of a nearby accent chair.

Layer your ensemble for a cozy, dimensional quality that will captivate you. Pink ruffle bedding features tier-upon-tier of dusty mauve fabric, which you can then top with pintuck pillows. Or, pick out a crochet pillow or two evocative of handmade doilies, and perk up a plain coverlet. Crochet bedskirts are also a gorgeous solution, if your bed covering doesn't quite touch the floor.

Finally, if you love the look of a canopy bed but not so much all the added bulk, you can create this same cascading effect with a bed crown. Also known as a teester, this decoration is mounted to the wall over your bed. A removable rod hidden behind details like scrolls or florals will hold your curtain panels, allowing them to drape sumptuously behind each corner of the headboard.

With this modern approach to Victorian decorating, you don't have to sacrifice function for form. Make your bedroom as beautiful as you'd like without all the fussiness!
