To some, the idea of Gothic culture MAY seem a little strange. But it is one of the longest standing subcultures to date. Generating visions of the post-punk horror scene, to many it may not seem the best option for decorating a nursery.
Usually seen in hard-core black dress and white make-up, the true Goth does not conjure up the traditional, stereotypical vision of family. But there is a richness and conviction in Gothic style that holds real beauty. And at Juvenile Hall Design, we celebrate individuality and creative expression.
Since it is the week of Halloween, a favorite of Gothic Culture, it’s the perfect time to try it on for size.
In recent decades, gothic culture has evolved into many different types and styles. These subcultures have humor, as portrayed in the Addams Family or the art of Edward Gorey.
There is the element of elegance and mystique as seen in both Victorian Romances and the current Vampire trend of the “Twilight” saga. It's storytelling, rich and filled with detail.
Do you have a love of Gothic culture? Have you experimented with its style in your kid’s room? Please share. We would love to see.
