On Sunday I visited the Victoria Room in Darlinghurst, Sydney, a bar and restuarant decorated in British-Raj (British Indian) style.
I love the over-the-top oppulance combined with a sultry Indian vibe. Think rich damask wallpapers and velvet lounges mixed with bamboo curtains and palm fronds, and sparkling chandeliers veiled in muslin coupled with slowly spinning wooden ceiling fans.
It's worth taking a virtual tour on the Victoria Room website to take a look at the gorgeous decore, or better still, visit in person if you can.
I think it is the perfect style to complement a Victorian terrace in Sydney. Now I am torn, do I decorate my room in forest girl style, or British Raj style?
