Vintage style decor is becoming more and more desirable, possibly due to the rising popularity of period dramas like Downton Abbey. If you want to achieve this traditional eloquent look yourself, lighting is going to be a large aspect of capturing the look and feel of a grand Victorian manor house. This short guide will provide the lighting ideas and inspiration you need to get the Downton Abbey look for your living area.
The most important fixtures in any Victorian style living room are the ceiling lights, which the room arguably revolves around. Traditional decor is renowned for its grand pieces, and the same is true for the main ceiling light, which should be beautiful, elegant and dazzling. Placing a chandelier in your living room will automatically create a grandiose atmosphere, but the choice can be overwhelming, but browsing some of the traditional lighting from Wayfair
will give you an idea of what will suit your room. If you want a simple, yet elegant style then you would do well to go with vaudeville, but if opulent and extravagant is the look you desire, then something like the beautiful Marie Therese five-light chandelier will more than suit your needs.
But it doesn’t end there because a tradition living room is nothing without a range of exquisite lamps. Park Brass style standing and table lamps placed carefully around the room will add a great deal of sophistication, with their traditionally crafted stands. Tradition wall lights, too, are a fantastic addition to any classic living room, as they highlight any artwork you may have hanging on the wall. Polished brass wall lights look luxurious and match the vintage style beautifully.
In short, achieving a vintage style living room with lighting is easy and with a little patience you could be sitting with the family watching Downton Abbey in your very own manor house.
