Spotlight on: Gothic interior design

When it comes to perfecting a beautiful, Gothic interior design, it’s all about dramatic elegance. Forget thoughts of dark, cluttered rooms, modern Gothic is rich, opulent, and comfortable.

Bear in mind the traditional methods of bold curves, rich colours, and ornate artwork. But bring the look up to date by working to a specific colour palette, with highlights and splashes of lighter décor.

Read on for our top tips for creating a modern Gothic inspired room.

Jewelled colours

From the walls to the cushions, key to a deliciously Gothic interior design is a rich colour palette.

Go bold with dark, matt paint for the walls, or choose ivory, with one dark feature wall if you’re not feeling quite that brave. Colours such as burgundy, emerald, aubergine, and burnt orange work especially well.

 

The same thought can be applied to wallpaper with dramatic effect, whether you opt for a feature wall, or fully papered room. Large swirls and metallic patterns add drama and create a focal point.

If your room has open beams, quirky doorways, patterned ceilings, or picture rails, make the most of them by picking them out in lighter colours. With Gothic interiors, highlighting what’s different, and adding a touch of elegance is important.

Rich fabrics

We’re talking crushed velvet, brocade curtains, and intricate Ottoman rugs. Large rooms can cope with contrasting fabrics, but be wary of piling too many patterns, fabrics, and colours in small rooms. Gothic interiors toe the line between opulent and oppressive.

 

Flagstones or wooden floorboards give a point of difference from the soft fabrics above, while wooden wall panelling can be used well in imposing dining rooms and bathrooms. Opt for floor-length curtains with tassels to complete the look.

Moody lighting

When it comes to lighting, flexibility will really aid the look and feel of your room. During the daytime, the option of bright light is important, while the evenings want to be cosily lit by warm shades.

 

Tall gothic ceilings can be crying out for an ornate chandelier, and opting for dimmable bulbs will give you that versatility. When it comes to the evening, light plenty of thick church candles.

Ornate furniture

When picking your furniture, try to complement your colours. If you’ve gone for a jewel tone on the walls, perhaps opt for a neutral sofa, but decorate with oversized cushions that contrast the walls.

Colours that are on opposite sides of the colour wheel go especially well together: blue and orange, purple and yellow, green and pink.

 

Dot wingback armchairs and chesterfield sofas in living rooms, and choose oak for interior or wrought iron tables and chairs for outside dining settings.

Bold artwork

 

For the piece de resistance of your Gothic interior design, ornate picture frames, and even tapestries if you’re feeling very bold, can really complete the look. Large mirrors can add an extra dimension to the space, while ordering custom-made stained glass for small windows can give a fabulous effect.
