Dark Walls, Cozy Rooms

A dark wall will enhance everything in the room, it’s a dark background that will set off your art, and make your accessories and your window treatments POP. The key to playing with dark walls is contrast, use lights and brights or try a fun metallic!

Choosing lighter shades of accessories and window treatments will help balance the room. Plus, adding texture to your accessories or treatments will ensure that the walls don’t fall flat.

Many believe that dark walls will make the room appear smaller, but quite the contrary – dark walls can help attract the light coming in from the windows. The walls act like a blank canvass allowing you to play with colors and fabrics. Painting the ceiling and trim white will frame the wall for more impact. Feeling adventurous? Go for a dramatic, cohesive look and paint it all dark!

Frank’s Five Design Tips

HGTV Designer Frank Fontana has put together a list of his most essential decorating tips for anyone looking to spruce up their home. Here are five things to start thinking about before you get started:

  1. Feel- The first question to ask yourself with any great design is, “what do I want this space to feel like?”
  2. Function- Great design without purpose is wasted space and dollars. Always pair style with need, but sometimes let your style take a slight lead.
  3. Ambiance- Ambiance is achieved when feel, lighting, and color hit the mark and come together in a great design.
  4. Balance- Too much of anything is never a good thing, especially when it comes to decorating the home. Know “when to say when” for accessories, themes, and other elements of a design.
  5. The eyes of the home- Remember, once the walls are painted, the furniture in place, and you are settled, the windows allow the soul of the home to shine. To craft the appropriate window treatments is not only imperative, but the cherry on top of every great design. Choose them as if they’re the perfect necklace to pair with the priceless gown.
