Light and airy is not the only way to go. Sometimes it’s all about dark and dramatic. Dark walls can provide a strong background that pulls together all the different elements in the room.
This midnight blue wall makes everything in front of it pop. Imagine that artwork and sofa against a white wall ……. so much less interesting.
Dark walls can also work wonderfully when you want to frame a fabulous outside view. These dark stained plywood walls and ceiling lead your eye to the beautiful Australian bush landscape.
Dining rooms can also benefit from dark walls. Imagine this dining table aglow with candles for a dinner party. How gorgeous would all your guests look??
And, of course, the bedroom is also the perfect candidate. Like sleeping in a comfy dark cocoon (with block-out blinds or curtains as well). Great for a Sunday lie-in.
Are there rooms in your home that could be transformed by some dark tones of paint or wallpaper?
