Idea 5 - As far as furniture goes, the most affordable type that goes with the authenticity of your Victorian interiors would be wicker. If you can't afford new furniture, you can always cover tables with skirt covers made of rich or embroidered fabrics such as brocades and velvet.

Keep your eyes open for deals, and don't be afraid to purchase items at thrift and consignment stores, because it is often there where you will find a variety of the authentic looking items you need to create the look.
