If Halloween has brought out your dark side, it might be time to experiment with Gothic interiors. But that doesn't just mean sticking to boring old black. The latest twist on Gothic includes grey, silver and red.
Glamorous and dramatic, the trend also blends striking skull prints with glitzy accessories to add an edgy touch to homes and make a stylish statement.
Kevin Parkin, head of design for Littlewoods.com, says: "This season, the catwalks are bursting with Gothic-inspired collections with a hint of punk style, so we have updated the Gothic trend to create a clean and fresh look for your home.
"Start with the colour palette: grey and black tones work as the perfect backdrop on walls and furniture, while silver accessories lift the look and a splash of red adds life to a room."
To get the contemporary Gothic look, try mixing high-gloss furniture with baroque-style pieces, such as mirrors and chandeliers, to set the tone.
