So, if you’re ready to add some flair to your home décor, here’s what you need to know.
1. Color Palette
Floral patterns won’t cut it. Damask, paisley, or brocade patterns are symbols of the Victorian era and give an elegant feel to a room. If you want a richer look on your walls, opt for something with a velvety, raised texture.
For those of you who don’t want the hassle of wallpaper, go for raised wainscoting, preferably with a dark stain that fits the style.
Use them everywhere: from upholstering furniture and bedding to have deep, richly colored velvet curtains and robes. Even the embellishments on your bedding or pillows can add a Gothic feel to your interiors, like fringes and tassels.
You can also look for stone pieces and pottery to add a hint of flair to the walls and shelves. With flooring, go for richly colored Persian rugs, rather than anything plain or modern.
