T’is the Season to be Scary!
You know what time it is! October is firmly Halloween season, a time to release your inner freak and indulge your inner goth. This time of year, Simmers are likely looking to transform their homes into haunted houses, which means mastering the dark Victorian, or Gothic, look. Here are some helpful tips courtesy of Farhana, Felisha, and Shweta! ￼
Gothic homes are often of the dark Victorian variety. This look is all about opulence, extravagance, and decadence.
To snag this look for your home:
👻 Drench your home’s interior and exterior in black.
👻Use heavy materials for the walls like stone or brick
👻 Create a sense of decadence for your home with gold accents
👻Use old, classic light fixtures like extravagant chandeliers and candelabras.
👻Drape all windows in heavy looking curtains
👻Adorn table surfaces with candles and old books
👻Dominate the room with large, dark statement pieces like grandfather clocks or coffins
👻 Accent the color black with a similarly rich color like deep red, hunter green, sumptuous purple, or glittering gold. Steer away from lighter pastels like pink, yellow, or blue.
👻Choose rich, patterned wallpaper and carpeting
👻Choose intricately carved furniture pieces; stay away from clean, crisp lines.
