Light, airy interiors and practical art are key elements of the European Gothic Style. The style originated as an antithesis to the dark, damp and plain structures and interiors that preceded this style. There are distinct features to this style, such as pointed arches, and bright windows that stream in a lot of light. The European Gothic style can lend quite an air of sophistication to home interiors. Small, authentic touches are quite important in executing this look. Contrary to popular belief, the Gothic style is not synonymous with spooky décor. In fact, it is about a décor profuse with divinity and devotion.
