Dark Versus Light
Color palettes are a significant aspect of creating an atmosphere and vibe of a room. If you are looking to create a “haunted castle on the hill” vibe, you are probably going to want to stay away from pastel and vibrant colors.
While it is a good idea to have some light colors to balance out your home and improve daylight reflection because light is important for wellbeing, focusing on neutral colors will not take away from the style you are going for. Light browns, beiges, magnolia, and even pure white can provide a brilliant contrast against dark blues, reds, and blacks and help the space feel more open.
Accessories Are Essential
Gothic interior design styles are not known for their subtly or minimalism, and this can be one of the reasons it harbors such a strong love from people. In a world awash with crushed velvet, grey accents, and a serious obsession with minimalism, gothic inspiration asks you not to take a leaf out of this book but burn it entirely.
An abundance of candles, books, skulls, taxidermy, ornaments, paintings, and art will truly transform every room into a vampire’s dream. The useful thing about accessories as well is that you can switch them up whenever you want to.

Get the Lighting Right
While gothic styles are not exactly known for their bright lights and beaming fluorescents, you will need some light in your home to go about your daily activities. However, there are so many different light options that you can use to create an atmosphere that is true to your interior overhaul. Soft, warm lighting is usually the preference for scenes such as these, and the style of the light fixings will make a massive difference to the overall cohesion of the look too.
