Okay, although it is so dark, gloomy, and creepy, undeniably, Gothic interior is really stunning, beautiful, and unique. And if you are a kind of people who love the nuance of classic or the history of medieval era, it seems a good idea to apply this one. So, how can we apply Gothic living room decor simply but also perfectly? Here they are some ideas that you can follow.
It is clear why we should make the living room darker than before. Well, it is since Gothic is so in line with the nuance of darkness. Of course, it doesn’t mean we have to put black color on all over parts of the interior. Just use it on some parts of wall decoration and maybe the furniture. It is cool as well to combine it with other dark and bold colors like maroon, dark red, and also purple. If you think it will look so cramped, just add the neutral or light one as the accents like white, ivory, or beige.
Gothic interior is all about the darkness indeed but it doesn’t mean it will not need any light. Make sure to install good lighting although it is probably still dimly on some parts. Meanwhile, it is good if you still consider installing some windows and ventilation to let the sunshine and air circulate well. Therefore, although it is dark in general, you still find it comfortable and healthy.
It is not a must actually. In fact, there are many Gothic interiors which are combined with contemporary furniture and it still looks great without lessening the nuance of Gothic. But if you want a sort of living room which is really really Gothic, it is like you have to prepare any classic interior like those in Victorian, Italian, or French Country style. Still, it seems you need to choose them which are in darker color like black or dark wooden brown.
Classic Patterned Wallpaper and Curtain
To deepen the look of classic and medieval, it is like you have to try this idea, attaching wallpaper, curtain, upholstery, rug, and other interior fabrics with classic pattern. The pattern itself can be floral, lace, fleur de lis – if you love something like conspiracy theory and want to bring it out in the living room, it just works so well. Still, it should be in black or black and white.
Applying classic engraved wooden as the photo frames, wall decoration, sunshade or window may let you spend more and more money. But if you really want to see your living room is in perfectly Gothic design, it seems you have to sacrifice your money more for this. Moreover, the result can be more satisfying.
