Gothic Decor For Spooky Season And Beyond
Spooky season might have you thinking gothic decor consists only of skeletons, ravens, and things that go bump in the night, but the aesthetic goes beyond the month of Halloween. In fact, the dark and moody decor can create a surprisingly romantic setting, often borrowing inspiration from the Victorian era — and painting those references all black. Embrace the eerily enchanting style with these scary-beautiful decor picks.

This Victorian inspired-mirror will have extra impact thanks to the gorgeous, glossy black finish.
Ruffled bedding becomes surprisingly romantic in the darkest shade.
When you're ready for some serious drama, tuck this regal chair into a corner of your home.
While living flowers won't exactly fit into the morbid mood, the deep colors of this beautiful dried bunch are a better complement to the setting.
Hang above your vanity or bed for a glamorous and ghoulish touch.
You can choose from a variety of prints in this style — from roses to skeletons and nocturnal animals — to suit your personal interpretation of goth.
