Victorian as a design and architectural style is broad and is filled with influences of different time periods. Add to this the variation brought in by local architectural elements being combined with this elegant style, and you have many different versions of Victorian. The current trend is to combine modern aesthetics with Victorian touches to create a seamless fusion of different eras. As much as we love this approach, the idea of stepping back in time and entering a Victorian dining room full of color and personality does seem like an appealing prospect. Today‘s visual treat is for those who love Victorian style at its unabashed best!
A contrasting approach is to add a smart navy blue or bright red hutch to a dining room that is draped in neutral hues. Since most dining room hutches can also be easily used in the kitchen or even in a shabby chic living room, you can always move it out when you want to alter the ambiance of the room. Distressed decor is making a huge comeback in 2016, with styles such as Bohemian and shabby chic allowing homeowners to embrace upcycled and rejuvenated furniture pieces. A lovely hutch with a distressed finish is a classic that never fails, and if you are willing to go down the route of a whitewashed hutch, then you can integrate it into even a contemporary and minimal dining room as well. If you cannot find a truly distressed china hutch, then give the modern piece that you own a custom distressed finish.
