When you hear the terms gothic and medieval as they relate to home decor, it can be very easy to conjure up dark foreboding images that may not seem relevant in an interior design you are trying to “cheer up”. However medieval and gothic decor is not nearly as creepy as it sounds, and today we are going to talk about how simple elements like strategically placed gothic tables can add an element of regality to your home without creating a haunted house look.
Decor from the medieval era is gaining popularity as a result of the British Royal Family gaining popularity again in the modern world. The medieval era took place between the 5th and 15th centuries and was marked by castles, weapons, and gothic art. The art in this era mixed both Roman and German motifs with gothic figurines and symbols adding religious elements to art decor and interior design.
Today, these symbols can be cleverly implemented into even the most contemporary setting. If you have a fireplace in your home, the simple addition of knight statues such as our fireplace ensemble can be all you need to add an element of medieval times to your home.
When it comes to recreating the royal look of the medieval era, you can do so without going overboard. The simple addition of a table, figurine, or statue is all you need to implement medieval times without becoming a part of the Adams Family.
