Whether or not you realize it, Gothic motifs are everywhere in contemporary design and furnishings. I guess you could call it a Gothic Re-Revival of sorts. Whenever you see a quatrefoil (super hot right now), pointed arch, or a flying buttress (not likely 🙂 ), that’s Gothic. It can be a little dark and dreary, but it can also lift you up to the heavens. Check out these modern takes on Gothic design.

As a special bonus, I thought I would also share some pictures of one of my favorite homes anywhere. It’s a gorgeous, lovingly restored c. 1852 Gothic Revival home in Williamstown, Massachusetts – adjacent to the Williams College campus (my alma mater). All photos are from Berkshire Living + Home.

Exterior shots. How amazing is the porch??

And the inside…such unique character, but the architectural detail is SIMPLE.
