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!
