05 Apr Dark Academia | An Uprising Moody Trend
A Bit of History
A Touch of Dark
Make sure to fill your spaces with pieces that have a history. Antiques that have been aged through generations and books that have told the same stories for decades will add layers of depth to your room’s story.
Maximalism is also crucial for Dark Academia. A chandelier, globes, candlesticks, ornate frames and mirrors, Grecian busts, and books – lots and lots of books. Incorporate books onto mantles, coffee tables, consoles – wherever there is space. Heavy, room darkening curtains hung above the top of windows create visual interest and the illusion of higher ceilings for a feeling of elegance and grandeur.
