What You Need to Know About Gothic Styles
To give your Gothic interior designs an edge, you must understand the things that make Gothic designs more stunning in a dark and ancient way.
These characteristics will give you the right ideas and design choices that will make your current interior decor just the antique accent that it truly needs.
We will go over the types of things that make Gothic designs and styles stunning and beautiful and why these types of designs and decor pieces are so highly sought after. Their antiquity is rarely understood and their origin even less so.
However, that does not deter people from falling in love with the dark yet beautiful designs and the truly unique aspects of the Gothic arts.
Gothic Style Influences Origin
The Gothic cathedrals were made with the highest Gothic art and architecture. These cathedrals were incredibly popular when they were first designed and built, but they are still just as popular today for their dark beauty.
However, these Gothic designs find their revival in the 19th century due to the Victorians. The new age cathedrals meant the initiation of new methods of architecture and new designs in this art style.
Gothic design was and still is more of an ecclesiastical style and was symbolic of the victory of the Roman Catholic cathedral over paganism in the European Regions.
Because of this you can now envision the Victorian Gothic style that resembles complicated beautified Roman churches rather than dreary and grim style rooms. Envision yourself in a haven with stately recolored glass windows with complex plans of trefoils or roses.
The uncovered wooden rafters and shafts, as shuddering flame light finishes the supernaturally propelled look.
Since Gothic design also loves to use stone, most of the cathedrals and other forms of architecture still stand to this day. W
ith the metal decor that was also typically used, there are still plenty of original artifacts of that time that still stand today, mostly in museums but some that are actually still available on the market.
Distinct Gothic Design
Just think of the old and ornate churches that were completely decked out in the beautiful yet dark decor. Think about how this type of design will put your interior on the track to antiquity greatness.
Indicated arches and stained cup complex trefoil or rose designs were the main themes used in Gothic art and architecture.
Large and exposed, wooden beams, with imposing fireplaces, and emulated candle lighting completed the ecclesiastical style that Gothic art was trying to portray.
There was a strong vertical impact supported by the high arches and peaks of the architecture with door arch ways that come to a higher tip in the middle are all typical indicators of the Gothic design.
Light was also incredibly important to the ecclesiastical style. As these Gothic windows grew increasingly more expansive and tall, light and air bombarded into the once ominous churches of the Roman period.
Gothic Color Combination
Colors were gloomy and dark with hints of bold color. They have a distinct resemblance of the Victorian era. Crimson, ruby, black, ochre, deep wood greens and gold added complemented the heavy furniture and rich and aristocratic type design.
Wallpaper was decorative and greatly patterned in natural plants and foliage such as the incredibly popular fleur de lis.
Also popular was trompe design’s features or the increasingly popular stencils. Wall spaces were painted in smooth colors, to depict rocks and bricks when the building couldn’t be made from rock and brick itself. Then, it would often be covered in intricate wall decoration.
Stenciled plans, heraldic images and the prominent tromp-l’oeil 3D-outline were all essential influences in gothic room designs, not just for homes built in that time but for the gorgeous and rich cathedrals built in that time as well.
The first Gothic designers painted dividers in different hues to reenact a stoney surface and elaborate dividers with embroidered works of intricate art and fabric with different fabric texture hanging.
Recolored glass windows were highlighted with beautifully forged iron, full suits of medieval knight armor, pewter and even large, intricate candle holders. Cornices and cut ribbing were regularly found in the outlines of the designs.
Choosing The Right Gothic Furniture
Victorian Gothic furniture was made of overwhelming, solid oak, and enhanced with period outlines. The cabinetry, headboards and seats are swarmed and full of intricate curves, superb hues, a very bright upholstery.
Furniture with legs that have winding and floral design turns were the style at that time and were incredibly beautiful with their carvings and wood work.
For your own Gothic interior design, consider these resigned pieces of art and furniture that is similar to that of the old cathedrals, including their benches, trestle tables and smaller seats.
The antique arts, furniture and other pieces of decor must have comparable themes that will provide even the biggest Gothic style enthusiasts satisfaction for their Gothic decor.
