When we are talking about decorating a Gothic bedroom, it’s difficult not to associate it with something creepy, gloomy, and even spooky. It’s pretty understandable that decorating such a theme can be a challenge, especially since we are talking about darker hues and shades which are responsible for the gloomy vibe.
Although you are still probably using black as the main color, the room doesn’t have to be scary or gloomy. It doesn’t even have to be dark and all pitch-black! If you can plan the whole scheme smartly in a creative way, the Gothic bedroom can look stylish and even chic with very minimal black hues. Remember, Gothic style dated back to the Medieval era with its own unique style, so choosing classic pieces of furniture with intricate details will also help. If we can combine both the furniture and colors, the result will be breathtaking.
Modern Gothic Bedroom
The bedroom doesn’t always represent the Medieval or ancient decor inspiration, especially if you are more into a modern look. With the right color combo and several matching accents, you can create a modern and glam Gothic bedroom that is visually pleasant. In this picture, as an example, the walls are light lilac combined with black and white combo in the bedding section. Add black chandelier and damask prints, and you have yourself a subtle Gothic atmosphere. Of course, if you want a more dramatic sensation or stronger Gothic vibe, we can always have a more dramatic headboard. Or add Gothic-related accessories and room decorations (especially for the wall), and you are good to go! In short, Gothic style doesn’t have to be too much that it becomes cheaply cheesy.
Gothic Bedroom Sets
Another thing that sets apart the Gothic bedroom decor from other bedroom decor styles is the options for the furniture. You need to think about the architectural elements that speak volumes of the Gothic influence. In this example image, look at the bed and how it exudes Gothic presence and feel. From the design and look, the bed alone has become an important focal point of the room. And look how it matches the bedside table, which also looks beautiful. Both of them alone are enough to create Gothic ambiance even without you having to incorporate another piece of furniture.
Victorian Purple Ideas
Although black and purple is generally identical with dark Gothic style, you don’t actually have to turn your bedroom into a very dark and gloomy space. Purple itself is a dark shade, so when you combine it with black, it would make the room even darker. However, if you want to create a stylish Gothic bedroom, the hues don’t have to be all dark and gloomy.
You can always go with pale or light purple, especially if you prefer pastel hues. Pastel purple will look great as the main color of the room. Simply match it up with the classic furniture pieces in Victorian styles, and you have yourself the elegant Gothic vibe. And the furniture doesn’t even have to be in black! In this example, you see that there is no black in the room and yet you can still feel the Gothic influence – from the bedding. If you want to create light Gothic bedroom feel, balance the colors.
Black and White Goth Room Decor
Black and white is a versatile combination. You can use the color combo for the modern or contemporary look. But we also use them to create appealing bedroom. Remember, Gothic style is about incorporating Gothic-themed items into the decor. So, if you want to create Gothic black and white bedroom, you need to include the right Gothic piece into the decor. In this example, the bed becomes the main focal point that exudes Gothic vibe. With the unique bed frame, we can create Gothic atmosphere right away. The bedroom itself is simple with white wall and black floor. Just by adding the bed, the atmosphere instantly changes. You even don’t have to add Gothic bedside tables – a regular one will do. But if you want to add another Gothic item, that’s okay. Just be careful not to overdo it.
Black and Orange Goth Room Ideas
Whether you choose for a subtle orange or a stronger tinge of orange, keep in mind that you can still deliver Gothic feel through the accents and the pieces of furniture. Just like purple, orange create a regal and elegant effect. With the main palette of soft orange all over the room, we still feel the Gothic vibe through the black bed. It looks ancient and somewhat beautifully creepy in some sorts of way. This bedroom looks elegant in subtle elegantly creepy manner – which is a good thing!
Black and Purple Gothic Style Bedroom Ideas
Again, you need to remember that black is enough to represent the Gothic vibe. If it’s too much, then it would be a blah. Another way to turn your bedroom into a stylish Gothic bedroom is to combine black with other palettes, such as purple. In this example image, you can see that such a color combination is creating an elegant and somewhat regal atmosphere in the bedroom. With black as the main palette, having light purple (on the sofa) and hot pink-purple combination (on the bookshelf) lights up the room so it won’t be too dark. A word of advice: If you are going to have dark color combination in the room, make sure that you have plenty of natural lights. The room should have enough big windows or skylight to allow natural lights to enter. Otherwise, it would be too dark and depressing.
In the end, it’s about room decor, the right pieces of furniture, and the colors – if you want to create an on-point style. Gothic isn’t about being scary or creepy – it’s more about focusing on the details and the elegant classic vibe you can get from the decor. As we can see from several examples above, Gothic bedroom doesn’t have to incorporate black hues, as long as you have the right pieces of furniture.
