The Winner

About this design:

With a balance of orderliness and ornamentation, homes during the Victorian Era reflected a prim and proper lifestyle while also celebrating excess. The rise of wallpaper, including elaborate patterns paired with bold prints throughout an entire room, proved that “less is more” was not the motto during this period of time. Note: The use of public domain designs will not be accepted.


This August we’re stepping back in time for our weekly design challenges. We knew you might get hungry along the way so we’re starting with a tasty treat before your adventure takes off. To sweeten the deal, August will be the first month the entire top 50, previously top 25, will be made available for sale in the Marketplace. Don’t forget to verify your Spoonflower account so your designs are ready to go if you find yourself in the winner’s circle.
