If you like Harry Potter books, if you are fond of fantasy, and you like European antiquity, my tips for creating a Gothic interior are for you.

Let's figure it out.

From all the theoretical information provided, I have highlighted the main, accessible, which I can explain to you in a simple accessible syllable.

Brief "biography" of the style:

"Birthday" of the Gothic style, second half of the 12th century. - 15th century
The style of architecture originated in France.

This style of a complex psychological state, it became the embodiment of the entire period of the Middle Ages in the understanding of modern man.
Gothic is different from other styles, having its own incomparable face.

Tall, delicate beauty and sophistication. Giant openwork towers. In fragile, thin columns, the verticality of structural elements is emphasized.

In the photo, St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague is one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in Europe.

Gothic was also called "Flaming Gothic", because all the architecture of those times resembled tongues of flame.

Another most important feature of this style is the stained glass windows.
In the photo St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

Thanks to the delightful stained-glass windows made by more than 20 masters (including the famous modernist Alphonse Mucha), transforming and refracting light, the sun's radiance always "lives" in the cathedral. Stained-glass windows depict pictures from the Sacred History, tell about the creation of the world and the life of the saints.

And here is the Holy Chapel - a Gothic reliquary chapel on the territory of the former Royal Palace on the Ile de la Cité in Paris. Her stained glass windows are considered the most beautiful in Paris.

Bright, sonorous colors are a characteristic feature of Gothic stained glass windows. They will transform the windows of a country house, and in a city apartment they will decorate panels on doors and wall niches (they need to be equipped with lights), but not ceilings: this technique began to be used only in modern and art deco.

All interior details should contribute to creating the image of an old abandoned mansion. The color scheme is restrainedly dark, using cherry, dark gray, purple tones. Gilded classic frames with patina, an abundance of velvet combined with satin textiles and elements borrowed from palace interiors.

Boards and tiles - on the floor. A massive dark board with a relief texture is the best option for residential premises. Embossed floor tiles in dark colors - square or hexagonal - are suitable for Gothic interiors.

Wall paintings. From the Gothic times, magnificent tiles and statues have come down, but only experts know about the paintings. Meanwhile, they were used to decorate the walls of temples and dwellings.

Large fireplace. It is best to arrange it in a spacious room. A monumental sandstone portal, a carved wooden frame will decorate both a real firebox and an electric fireplace. Instead of the classical order, the decoration of the "medieval" fireplace should contain Gothic and Celtic ornaments or heraldic emblems.

Chandeliers with wrought-iron cornices, on low suspensions and with stained glass inserts, floor lamps stylized as floor chandeliers (candlesticks) will create a "medieval" atmosphere. Handles and trims made of bronze or brass will give a "lock" look to the door panels.

Solid wood furniture. Chairs with high backs or stools (including folding ones), painted and forged chests, massive wooden wardrobes (with or without decorative carvings) are the main set of Gothic furniture.

Do not forget about the four-poster bed with a dense canopy - this will become the main piece of furniture in the bedroom. But a large dining table in Gothic times had the simplest look, the main thing is that the table top was solid. As an alternative to wooden furniture, chairs and tables on wrought iron (real or stylized forging) frames are suitable. The same goes for stairs.

Set of furniture for the bedroom "Harrison Canopy" in furniture stores "Kingdom of Sleep".

The Gothic style developed characteristic medieval patterns: the so-called trifolium (trefoil), quadrifolium (four-petal pattern), and the Gothic "rose" (a circle in which a stylized flower is inscribed). High pointed arches on columns, fantastic animals can be repeated in the carving.

In the bathroom, you can use the new La Diva collection of Villeroy & Boch ceramic tiles in exquisite and rare shades of pearl and black tulip.

Where the main highlight of the collection is a handmade mosaic panel inlaid with natural gold and very reminiscent of Gothic ornaments.
Don't you think so?

And here are a couple of other interiors that the designers have embodied in the Gothic style.
