Dramatic Dark Walls

As much as I love light and bright spaces, I’m always drawn to intensely deep hues on walls.  When balanced with plenty of white, dark walls add sophistication and elegance.  Here are five favorite shades to inspire you if you’re feeling the need for drama to your home by darkening the walls of any of your spaces. 

Mocha.  Chocolate brown is warm and enveloping in bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, or offices.  It can lean masculine when mixed with dark wood, but is also kept contemporary when balanced with plenty of white or paired with pops of citrus like lime green and lemon zest.

Slate.   Mid tone gray is chic choice for bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms too.  Mix in muted or shiny metallics, mirrored finishes, or glamorous accents to heighten the sophistication.
