Crafting the Mood with Color

I’m going to break down how to recreate that sumptuous, moody 90s goth aesthetic that makes your soul feel like it’s wrapped up in a warm black velvet blanket on a crisp October night.

First up, let’s talk COLOR. To nail that 90s witchy vibe, we’re going deep and dark.

Think rich shades of plum, deep purples that seem to absorb the light, burgundy so dark it’s almost black, and of course, black as the midnight sky.

These colors have a way of making a space feel intimate, introspective, and just a touch mysterious.

But we don’t want to live in a void, do we?

That’s where your accent colors come in. Look no further than your favorite 90s movies for inspo. “The Craft” and anything with our goth queen Winona Ryder are goldmines.

A flash of deep red, a hint of antique silver – those little pops will keep your space from feeling like a black hole (in a bad way).

You can even get a bit playful with a shock of electric blue or acid green, like the neon signs flickering in the background of a seedy vampire club.

The Luxe of Velvet and Beyond

Now, let’s get TACTILE. If there’s one fabric that screams goth luxury, it’s velvet. It’s the fabric of Victorian mourning dresses and of heavy drapes in haunted mansions.

The point is, velvet is the fabric of gothic dreams and I’m a big advocate for using it everywhere – from plush throw pillows to sweeping curtains to a sumptuous bedspread that makes you feel like you’re sleeping in a sea of shadows.

You don’t have to drop major coin to get this look either. Check out some online fabric stores for deals on crushed velvet in those deep, witchy shades we talked about.

And don’t be afraid to branch out to other luxe materials too. Chenille, faux fur, even a bit of antique lace or fishnet can all give off that dark, mysterious air.

It’s all about mixing those textures to create a space that begs to be touched.

Gothic Cinema as Décor Inspiration

If you really want to nail that 90s goth vibe, you need to go straight to the source: the iconic movies that defined the aesthetic.

“The Craft”, “Beetlejuice”, “Edward Scissorhands” – these films are all dark and dreamy masterpieces with interior design inspiration to spare.

Take “The Craft” for instance. The moody wall colors, the antique furniture, the candlelit altars dripping with melted wax – it’s a mood board waiting to happen.

Or look at Lydia’s room in “Beetlejuice” with its lace curtains, Victorian portraits, and striped black and white walls. It’s the perfect blend of whimsy and darkness.

You can translate these cinematic vibes into your own space with a little DIY magic.

 Transform thrift store picture frames with a coat of matte black paint and fill them with old photographs or haunting art prints.

Craft your own celestial garlands with moons and stars cut from metallic paper to drape across your walls or headboard.

A can of spray paint can turn an old brass chandelier into a gothic candleabra straight out of a vampire’s lair. It’s all in the spooky little details, babes.

Celestial Accents for a Mystical Touch

Now, let’s take a moment to look up at the night sky. Is there anything more goth than the endless expanse of the universe, with its twinkling stars and mysterious planets?

I think not. So let’s bring a bit of that celestial magic into your 90s goth haven.

Start with tapestries splotched with silver constellations, like the chart of an ancient astrologer.

Hang mirrors etched with the phases of the moon to create an illusion of depth and mystery.

Scatter candleholders that glimmer like distant planets across your shelves and tabletops.

You could even paint your ceiling a deep midnight blue and add some glow-in-the-dark stars for a dreamy, ethereal effect.

The key is to create a space that feels like a portal to another realm – a place where magic and reality blur together like a hazy dream.

The Charm of Antique and Thrift Finds

One of the best things about the goth aesthetic is that it celebrates the beauty in the old, the forgotten, the slightly worn.

So naturally, some of the best witchy treasures are waiting to be discovered at your local thrift and antique shops.

Keep your eyes peeled for vintage jewelry boxes with delicate, ornate engravings. Snag old tarot card decks with faded, mysterious illustrations.

Scoop up tarnished silver trinkets, like old keys or lockets, that look like they could unlock ancient secrets.

With a bit of creative arranging, these secondhand scores can give your space major apothecary or curiosity shop vibes.

Pile old hardcover books (bonus points if they’re about witchcraft or the occult) in haphazard stacks.

Display your collection of antique bottles and jars on a weathered wooden shelf. Drape a bit of black lace over a thrifted vanity mirror for an instant dose of haunted glamour.

Embracing the Occult with Crystals and Tarot

Now, what’s a goth haven without a touch of the occult? To really channel that witchy energy, stock up on some mystical must-haves like crystals and tarot decks.

Hit up your local metaphysical shop or browse online crystal stores for some enchanting specimens.

A chunk of deep purple amethyst for spiritual protection, a string of hematite stars for grounding energy, a tower of clear quartz points to amplify your intentions – these occult accents not only look hella cool on a velvet draped shelf, but they can also bring a sense of sacred energy to your space.

And of course, no self-respecting witch’s lair is complete without a tarot deck (or seven).

Look for decks with hauntingly beautiful artwork, like the classic Rider-Waite deck or the more modern Vampire Tarot.

Display your favorite cards on an altar or prop them up on your nightstand for a daily dose of divination.

The Beat of the 90s – Music Influences

Finally, let’s talk tunes. Music is SUCH an important part of creating a vibe, and the 90s goth scene was all about those haunting, atmospheric beats.

So let’s weave some of that sonic magic into your décor, shall we?

First up, dig out your old band posters (or snag some reprints online) and frame them in sleek black frames.

Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Bauhaus – these iconic bands are the perfect wall art for your goth sanctuary.

Next, hit up your local record store (or Discogs) and start building a collection of vintage vinyls.

Not only do they sound amazing, but those album covers are works of art in their own right.

Stack them up on a shelf or prop them up on a record stand for an instant dose of retro cool.

And if you really want to go all out, why not make a wall collage out of classic cassette tapes?

You can find old blank tapes for cheap at thrift stores or online, and with a bit of black paint and some gothic label art, you can create a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art that’s equal parts nostalgic and macabre.

Of course, no goth room is complete without some actual music playing. Create the perfect spellbinding atmosphere with a playlist of your favorite 90s goth and alt-rock tunes.

Light some black candles, let the incense smoke curl through the air, and let the haunting melodies of Mazzy Star or the driving beats of Sisters of Mercy transport you to another realm.

With all these elements in place, you’ll be ready to tap into your inner teen witch and create a space that’s equal parts enchanting and edgy.

So go on, light those candles, queue up that playlist, and let your goth flag fly high.

Make Fairuza Balk proud and craft a bedroom that would make Nancy Downs green with envy.

Conclusion 

Now that you’re overflowing with whimsy goth bedroom inspiration, it’s time to make some magic happen!
