Your bedroom decor defines the image you want to portray. A gothic themed bedroom is a very unique space, the interior design very much different to the standard design you see. It is more about personal preferences and what you find appealing.
Gothic bedroom design covers all the normal aspects you consider when designing the bedroom. Generally, the gothic ambiance tends to be a very dark place, with a dark color palette…with gothic colors, a black wall isn’t out of the question!
In a more traditional Victorian gothic bedroom, you tend to see more antique furniture in your room décor. It has a certain gothic flair that many of you will recognize. Imagine your setting to be a medieval castle with a huge crystal chandelier, stained glass, candle holder and a intricate gothic arch. Obviously, this is a very elaborate vision, in most cases, Victorian style will be the starting point for many.
In a more modern gothic bedroom idea, you may not see all the intricate aspects, but the gothic theme will run through it. This will mainly be done through the color scheme…as we discussed above. In gothic interior decors, the color palette has a dark base. In a modern gothic room, the accent color may be the darkest color.
We also need to consider what a gothic bed will look like. In a more traditional gothic style, it may well be a very intricate bed frame style that has been upcycled to look a certain way. In a more modern bedroom setting, a canopy bed is very popular.
So, with that said, let’s take a look at some fantastic examples of gothic bedroom décor.

Intricate surfaces and styling is a key theme in Gothic style. Furniture is usually defined by patterns and moldings that usually feature roses, spirals or pointed arches. However, this can vary quite widely. What is important is the sense and feeling that it delivers.
In terms of the furniture, it is usually very well made, usually of oak. Normally it is adorned by luxurious fabrics on the bed spreads and pillows…think velvet’s, satin’s or silks. One thing that Gothic style does deliver is glamour…in abundance.
You can achieve a Gothic bedroom through color, furniture and accessories. The color tends to be very dark delivering a very moody vibe. This will include blacks of varying tone and grays. The furniture will be aged, avoiding modern styling at all cost. Ideally, it will be intricate with carvings and some personality. In terms of color, you can achieve the color you want through paint. Accessories are the most cost effective way to achieve styling. Much of this, you could do yourself, think prints for the wall, patterns and soft furnishings.
With Gothic design, black is the main color. Ideally your walls and ceiling can be black too. However, there are many shades of black…deep blacks to blacks that almost look grey. The important thing is to add some contrast by choosing a tone of black that offers some separation to the room. Otherwise, you end up with a space that looks flat. You colors should complement and draw out the detail of your furniture and furnishings.
Gothic decor makes use of dark colors and intricate furnishings to deliver a sense of luxury and sensuality. The gothic look is all about your personality and your sense of being.
EMO imagery is very specific…think skulls, roses, hearts, thorns…basically it is very emotive designs. This is something that transfers to the furniture styling as well as soft furnishings.
