We can thank Twi-hards (The Twilight Saga Fans) the world over for the trend towards all things vampire and the return to the romantic mystery of gothic style. Despite the current trendiness of the gothic or vampire genre, this style of décor is certainly not reserved for teens! Instead gothic features in fabric and furnishings can offer a mature, sensual style perfect for a beguiling boudoir.

Décor of this style often features brocade or damask patterns in velvet or jacquard fabrics.  These gothic-style upholstery fabrics are rich in texture, often featuring silky, sheer and draped details, which combine to create a lavish and sensual mood.

This style favours rich colours including, black, red, purple and brown but can be transferred to any colour palette for a unique take on the trend. Sophisticated metallic accents are often used to offset the dark tones common in this style, in addition to providing a contemporary edge to often antique-themed styling.

The gothic revival trend can be executed in either a minimalist style, with beguiling accents or a lavish centrepiece as well as combined to create a distinct style of splendour and extravagance.

Design Ideas:

Run with this extravagant style, adding trimmings such as: decorative nails for a more gothic finish or gimp braid, trimming or tassels for a more romantic luxurious design.

Complete the look with furniture legs in rich dark woods that heighten the colour palette or choose contemporary chrome legs to give a harder style finish and create a unique style contrast.
