Vic­to­rian gothic

In­te­ri­ors are mov­ing over to the dark side

Living Etc - - CONTENTS / ETC -

This au­tumn, it’s not just the weather tak­ing a dark turn. De­sign­ers are adding a lit­tle Gothic noir to their col­lec­tions. On the cat­walk, Tem­per­ley Lon­don rein­vented gov­erness chic – send­ing strong and sexy maid­ens down the runway. Back at the haunted man­sion, House of Hack­ney’s new fab­ric prints have some­thing of the night gar­den about them, while ev­ery day is Hal­loween as a host of macabre in­sects and an­i­mals creep on to home­ware. Rory Dob­ner un­earths bee­tles, while Sains­bury’s takes the crow road. Sounds too scary? Shoot flecks of old gold through a scheme to boost the glam fac­tor or add some black lace – more for funk than frills.
