16 Ways To Make Your Room As Dark As Your Soul

My aesthetic is dead flowers and rust.

1. Paint your walls, shelves, and furniture the color of your black heart.

2. Hang an old portrait with eyes that follow you everywhere.

3. Make your furniture look like you've had it for *ages*.

4. And rust all of your metal fixtures.

5. Lend a helping hand wherever you can.

6. Get blackout velvet curtains for your vampire tendencies.

7. Find some less-than-welcoming candles to set the mood.

8. Or use candle sticks to create a ~Phantom of the Opera~ vibe.

9. Hang bare Edison bulbs from your ceiling if reading by candlelight seems a bit much.

10. Paper your walls in dark floral if you're dead inside but also like pretty things.

11. Or just dry out flowers and spread them around your home.

12. Choose wrought iron hardware that's as cold as your disposition.

13. Turn books that don't have black or white covers page-side-out.

14. Make concrete skulls out of halloween decorations after the ~holidays~ are over. 😭

15. Distress your mirrors to make them look a bit more haunted.

16. Leave a smudge stick burning in the corner.

Mood, always.
