You totally have my ear on this. When I eventually buy my dilapidated Victorian mansion, will you be available to consult on the interior refurbishment?
I was thinking, William Morris prints, French damask silk window dressings with sumptuous tasselled swags and tails, fringed Ottomans in the drawing room, perhaps matching Boulle bas-buffets on each side of the fireplace. Are we on the same page here?
Replace the William Morris prints with more French silk as wall hangings - William Morris, remember, was someone who championed the Aesthetic Movement, a reaction against the historicist revival styles (Baroque Revival, Rococo Revival) - having his wallpaper in a room with silk damask drapes and Boulle bas-buffets would be a clash of styles. If you wanted to lighten the look a bit, replace the Boulle with Loius XVI (or even Louis XV) - matching low commodes at either side of the mantelpiece is always a good look (extra style points if there are chinoiserie panels inset into the furniture, inside the ormolu frames).
