Moody Dark Bloom Style Guide For your home

Embrace Victorian gothic décor with our Dark Blooms theme, this look is all about drama and elegance – it’s about making a statement!
This lavish look is draped with patterned fabrics, ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.


If the high-end drama is a little too much for you, consider just adding a small selection of this dramatic style, it can be as simple as adding a few bold colours and combining with a chandelier.


Highly patterned floral fabrics such as the Christy range of bedding in ‘Rose Bouquet’ or ‘Romany’ create a lavish look, especially when teamed with a ‘rouched velvet throw’ in ruby red or rich purple.


For the bathroom try introducing rich, jewel tones in the ‘supreme’ range of towels from Christy, we’ve used ‘Damson’, ‘Plum’ and  ‘Midnight’ pictured below.


Choose a feature piece of furniture to inject interest, the glass fronted display unit from the ‘Provence’ range, is perfect for towels and bedding.  Or go for ultimate opulent extravagance with this claw footed, ‘Canterbury’ roll topped bath (available in white and black), which makes a spectacular centrepiece!
