There's something about dark walls. Maybe it's the pinch of mystery they add to a room, or maybe it's just October 28th and I'm feeling very Haloweeny. In any case, color me obsessed with black, dark gray, deep green and almost-black-blue walls. The rooms below simply give me the chills, in the very best way.
Check out these "dark rooms" and the way they ground a room by locking the design in place.
This living room practically screams for you to hunker down with glass of red, but don't spill it on the couch. The gray/black wall behind the couch creates a focal point for the room. Source: Designrulz.com
Could this kitchen BE any lovelier? Sophisticated and inviting. And, those beams! Source: Brit.co.com
Urbane Bronze. Sherwin Williams nailed this dark-room stunner. Even the name sounds polished. This is a color that sometimes looks browny-black and sometimes grayish-black and looks great on doors. Source: Pinterest
This bathroom is done in Calke Green, by Farrow and Ball. What a stunning contrast against the white. I def might have to try this color... Source: bostonglobe.com
Finally, I bring you fine dining, compliments of Dear Lillie. This room is so awesome I'm at a loss for words...but, those charcoal Kendall Charcoal (by Benjamin Moore) walls speak volumes all by themselves. Swoon city. (Hop on over to the very talented Dear Lillie's blog for more information and inspiration.)
Time to make the donuts...errr, leftovers. Until next time... Happy Halloween and don't be afraid of the dark :)
