Lately every individual you meet on the street just loves the color black, even on their nails. Incorporating a black color theme in homes is a growing trend and something you may be interested in for yourself.
If you look up the word Goth in the dictionary it gives the following definition: a style of rock and punk with a mash up of the colors white, silver and black plus metal accessories. Black is a versatile piece that goes with virtually any color and makes any room elegant. Simply mix it up with music and metal and you get Goth. This theme is perfect for your teen’s room, a basement bar, music room, or even in your own living room if that’s your style.
So what fabrics and upholstery give off the feel of Goth? A simple black leather couch with metal embellishments could scream Goth but it doesn’t just end with the furniture. A complete décor includes the rug, window embellishments, floor, walls up to the smallest details such as the lamp, lamp shade, vase and even the ash tray.
Incorporate Goth decor in a bar and use lighting that elicits a rock and roll stage – think spotlights and colored bulbs. Get posters of your favorite band and try to mix it up with a touch of elegance, such as black mixed with silver rather than white. The possibilities are endless.
Black leather is another great choice for Goth inspired upholstery and offers resistance to spills and stains and some can even be sunlight resistant. The same pointers apply to home decor when purchasing new items or updating the look of a room. It would be inappropriate if you placed a Gothic-looking couch in a preppy inspired pink and blue pastel colored room which is why it is important to stick to one theme in designing or updating a room.
As mentioned, black doesn’t have to be the sole color of the decoration used. The colors may range from silver to white to gray as long as the colors blend, match, and mesh well with the color black to give the correct feel.
For those of you who wish to be different or are already different in the way you dress, speak or act, then try making even your home unique and quite different than the rest. Your house gives detailed information about the person living in it. Gothic inspired looks for a house scream out the characteristics of a person who wishes to be different but makes sure that their styles still speak classic and elegance.
