How to Decorate a Bedroom in the Gothic Style
The bedroom is our small refuge, where each of us should express through decoration we like and what better makes us feel. A place totally our we can decorate to our liking, colors, furniture and fixtures that best identify with our personality and to help us create the environment in which we want to rest and relax.
A style somewhat controversial, and that speaks much long time, is the Gothic style, many associate it with something dark, especially for the color that represents the black, though combined with red or white. True it is that there is relationship between the Gothic and ghosts, death, the vampiros… but associated with the Gothic term we need to distinguish between literature, architecture, fashion… and particularly Gothic architecture has nothing of gloomy. When decoration comes only is recreate the color style and some ornaments on that each one can choose to arrive.
The colors that predominate in the Gothic style are black, grey and red. Black is a color with which we must be careful, since it remains light and makes spaces appear smaller, if we go with the black in the walls, the environment can be depressing, so it is good to combine with grey or silver and contrast with white or red to provide some brightness and energy.
On furniture, obviously trying to a bedroom we need a bed and a wardrobe, bedside tables, we can add a tocador… Normal in any room, the style is achieved with forms and materials, recommended especially wood solid or perhaps metals, perhaps something of wrought iron. The upholstery should be dark colors. Regarding Forms arches at peak are typical of the Gothic style, it would be great to include any.
To decorate a little bedroom, again we must think in Gothic, we are not going to leave the room without any details, but if we want to keep the Gothic environment we can not put anything. All is well known that there are symbols and typical figures associated with Gothic, fairies, crosses or dragones… We put on walls or on a shelf, not to exceed US isn’t good recharge.
But the Gothic style is not at odds with all conventional ornaments, some consider as candles or plants. Both one and the others, well chosen to fit almost any style of candle, we will choose the same colors that for the rest of the decoration if they are drawn or even decorated with black, red, plateadas… will be less gloomiest. A dark flowering plant is also a good choice. In addition both the velas, if they are aromatic, as plants also decorate to smell and providing pleasant odors and thus helping to create a good it environment.
We have already commented that the upholstery should be, if any, in dark colors, of course the same is true with bed linen and textile accessories-general. In addition there are tissues that are especially suitable to decorate in Gothic style, brilliant silk, velvet, the raso… Although typical choose black, grey, white and red, the more daring can try also the purple or cobalt blue, which combined with black and silver, are ideal.
On the bed as well as in any bedroom a pile of cushions, this is another of those things that serve almost for any style cushions to choose with different colors and shapes to make them fit in with the environment in question, in this case are black or dark, but they can be decorated, e.g. embroidered with gold and silver.
We talked about the possibility of including candles as part of the decoration, our question is decide if we placed or not about chandeliers, since then well chosen they are ideal for our purpose to get really Gothic but candles will not be enough for the bedroom light, we need to also include any other lighting system.
With Gothic style not associated with too much clarity, maybe is good incorporating lamps choose a regulator of intensity so that we can make it all Dim we want. On the other hand to control natural light they are used very bushy curtains, Velvet can serve so that the Windows are hidden almost altogether, leaving enter only light that we want to allow.
In addition to all that we have already discussed, we can also consider some other elements, mirrors you can use to produce a wonderful effect, an ideal way for a mirror in a Gothic bedroom Castle window. On the other hand if we wear the soil dark carpets are perfect for a Gothic room.
There are many details that we can help make the room look more Gothic, e.g. simulating irregular brick walls or a canopy in bed with a glossy dark cloth. Although it is a style that my to my room I would not want, however always called much attention and if in a room with others and is well made, I love to see it, I guess that he reminds me of legends and films.
