If you are going for a Victorian look in a new or newer home, and you have the ability to change out or purchase the woodwork and trim, then go to a reliable home building centre and get wide wood trim, ask the people in millwork (that's their department) to assist you in the choices, tell them what you are doing and let them know what your budget is. If your budget is limited you can go for the primed fiberboard as a cost saving measure. Be prepared to do a fair amount or work if this is your choice. If however you are lucky enough to have moved into a Victorian home, the trim work will be there, you may most likey need to uncover it. Unfortunately over the years most trim work in the old Victorians have acquired any number of coats of paint and those should be stripped off.

Most trim work of the time was natural wood, usually dark, however lots of oak was not uncommon. That said, you can do a faux-wood finish over the painted (or primed if newly purchased) trim. It isn't easy, but it is well worth the effort. Most good books on paint treatments and faux-finishing will have step by step instructions on how to do this. Your local library or reputable paint retailer will have these for you. As a "fast and dirty" solution a dark tone (something picked up from other colours in the room) or a dark-ish brown tone, about the colour of mahogany will pass.

To align with a Victorian theme, you want your decor to be intricate and almost over the top. Floral or twisting patterns work well, and bright colors were very popular in the eighteen hundreds. Hand-crafted items were also popular, so you might consider adding crafted wood shelves or containers.

Theme and decor refer to the way an space is decorated. For instance, a hotel lobby may have Victorian furniture, patterned floral wallpaper, silver framed photographs and Tiffany lamps. The theme can be considered vintage and the decor is Victorian traditional. In contrast to traditional themes and decor, contemporary decor refers to the present time and current cultural attitudes. Expect a hotel lobby with modern art and a contemporary theme to include modern sculptures and geometrical lighting. Flooring and furniture of contemporary rooms will be uncluttered and simple. Expect restraint in color and patterns of contemporary themed rooms.

The theme that you are going to talk about, and why you find this theme important. An identified theme or main idea of the story

User Avatar

The theme of a story is the underlying message.A theme can be a universal truth or a generalization about some aspect of lifeTo determine the theme of a story, ask yourself, "What does the author want me to learn or know?" Your answer should be a "big idea" that can stand on its own away from the story.Many stories have more than one theme. To be valid, a statement of theme should be supported by evidence from the text.
