Going Goth

In case you haven't noticed, gothic motifs abound in my world. And why not? Surely something that has been around for almost a thousand years has withstood the test of time.

To go goth in your interiors, try any of these relics: the quatrefoil, the gothic arch or the groin vault.

Groin Vault

I love groin vaults as a ceiling detail to create focus and drama. Emulating a cloister, groin vaults are dramatic in a foyer. Also over a freestanding tub in a master bathroom. The interior below features a groin vault in a library designed by McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors.

See? In interiors, going goth is not only the tried and true, but the elegant way to go.
