Walls
Bedroom Of A Stone House
The walls should ideally be made of stone, similar to the houses of the Gothic era. You can even consider fake stone walls, but only if they look authentic. Otherwise a good option would be to paint them in colors such as blue, purple, or gray.
Furniture and Flooring

The flooring should be either of stone or wood. Place a number of expensive silk rugs on the floor to give the house a rich appeal. Opt for solid wood furniture. It can be painted in colors such as black, silver, brown, or white for added effect.
Fabric
Spacious Master Bedroom With Sitting Area
Use rich, stunning, and costly fabric for decoration. So, when you are selecting the fabric for your bedding, cushions, curtains, and upholstery, make sure that it is very thick and heavy and also of a very high quality. Inexpensive fabrics are a big no.
Accessories
Interior With Blue Sofa
This decor is incomplete if some creative and beautiful artwork is not displayed in the rooms. So invest in a few beautiful paintings and other artwork which depicts people, sceneries, or houses of that era.
Candles Burning And Yellow Fall Flowers
Other accessories, which really go well with this style are candles, which come in different shades like silver, gold, yellow, black, and red. Colored, scented candles in metallic candle holders, can be placed at different places in the house and will look beautiful in a bedroom, lending it a mysterious and romantic appeal.
Wall hangings made from silk with silver or white embroidery on them, cushions in silk cloth with crystal designs on them, metallic chandeliers and plants which have white or red colored flowers, add to the appeal of the house.
