How to Achieve a Modern Victorian Look with Florals

We recently wrote about how you can get the Victorian look in your home, giving you plenty of tips from using bold colours & utilising patterns to browsing porcelain wall tiles online to envisage your ideal design. Hopefully, these tips will have given you a good place to start if you’re looking to give your home a Victorian touch. However, today we’ll be talking about how you can specifically use florals to give achieve a modern Victorian look which will bring an element of sophistication and luxury to your home.


Floral styles have a particularly Victorian vibe, so you don’t have to work too hard to achieve this look when you are using florals in your interiors.


For Subtle Styles


Floral doesn’t always have to mean bright colours and complicated designs with delicate floral patterns. If you want to modernise the Victorian look, keeping the patterns subtle is a good choice.


In the example below, you can see that there is a floral pattern with swirling leaves etched into the tile. However, the lack of colour and distinct flower imagery gives it a subtle look that modernises the style. The neutral colour and design of this tile make it perfect for pretty much any room as you needn’t worry about it looking too busy.

For Bold Styles


While you can achieve a subtle look with floral tiles, some of us prefer a bolder look which is a little more distinctive. Tiles such as the ones featured below provide a floral look but use broad strokes and lines to achieve that floral appearance.


These bold tiles can give a distinctive look to a room such as a kitchen or a bathroom. If you’re not quite ready to use such bold designs throughout a whole room, you can create a feature wall to show off your tiles.

Sometimes, less is more. While this is not something that the Victorians were great believers in, you can update the Victorian look by only using it sparingly.


The tile featured below has a pretty floral design but offers a simple sophistication. The small flowers effortlessly achieve the Victorian style whilst maintaining simplicity. This is a perfect tile for those who are looking for a way to add a touch of the Victorian style without letting it become the sole focus of the room.
