Gothic D'cor - Enter The Dark Realm - Articles Surfing
Gothic d'cor is often associated with medieval designs, which is not surprising considering the two are quite similar.
However the major difference between gothic and medieval, is that gothic d'cor is usually much darker, and perhaps in a modern sense, a little more "stereotypical".
When it comes to gothic d'cor you need to think dark. Everything considered gothic is void of bright colors. The major gothic colors include black, deep purples such as eggplant or violet, black, deep greens such as forest green, black, royal blue, black, crimson reds, black, silver, and black-you get the idea.
Gothic d'cor themes will vary depending on what tastes your child has. There are two basic gothic types that will be taken into consideration here:
The traditional gothic theme is one that consists of dark colors, and is lightly based on the period that existed in Northern Europe between the 12th and 15th century. A room fashioned in this type of gothic d'cor often resembles that of a medieval dungeon or bedroom. The following is only an example of what such a room could consist of:
* Dark paint or wallpaper on the walls
As for the modern gothic theme, this type of gothic d'cor is far less medieval, and much more 'punk'. This is because modern Goths associate themselves with current dark imagery that is found within heavy metal/rock music and horror/cult movie classics. Here is an example of a room that could appeal to the modern goth:
* Black painted walls
Although the above two examples are extreme, you should have a better idea of what to look for, and expect, if your child is interested in gothic d'cor.
Something else you may wish to look into, if your child would like a gothic d'cor theme, is a wall mural. You don't have to be an artist, or even hire a professional to accomplish this task. All you require is a simple image, which your child can choose from the internet or elsewhere, and transfer it to transparency film.
Use a projector to display the image on the wall, and then copy and paint to create the perfect gothic d'cor wall design that your child can take joy in.
Don't be afraid to explore the dark mysteries of gothic d'cor that interest your child. Encourage their imagination; indulge their desires for their room, even if it makes you cringe slightly to do so. Remember, as long as you approve, there is no reason why you both can't be happy.
