But black interiors do not have to be forlorn and dowdy spaces, they can in fact create a cosy and glamorous area in which to relax.

For a classic Gothic charm, opt for ornate carved designs in silvers or black; Baroque style mirrors work particularly well in this setting as they are both opulent and versatile in their design. For a more quirky and eye-catching focal point you can select more unique carved designs such as mythical characters, cross shapes or looking glass designs (left) to create a wow factor on a feature wall.

Intricate metal and medieval designs work well as they provide a classic and timeless style that suits both modern and traditional homes.
