Be Brave - Dark Walls

If you have been contemplating painting a wall in your house a dark colour tone, then you have come to the right place. We have sourced some fabulous inspiration to give you courage to take the plunge. I am sure you have heard the old cat call 'dark walls create confined spaces' but this is simply not true... (at least not all the time!)

Dark walls work perfectly with wooden floors or an organic natural carpet or rug. And can be easily made to feel bright with artwork, maps and wall hangings. If the painted walls are in the same room as large windows or exposed brick walls you can easily create a feeling of the industrial style.

 

Adding lightness and colour to a dark wall is the key to making the most of the darker tones. White or colour can sometimes become toned down when placed on white walls, however when they appear on dark walls they instantly become highlighted and their impact is much more dominant.

  

Yellow and natural wooden tones work so well here with the dark wall. The mix of colours is ironically bright and warm. 

 

 

In the bedroom a dark wall can create a dramatic and intense feature when combined with light bedding and colourful artwork

You can really make the most of a mixed media and multi frame wall when they are combined with a dark wall. Mix and match frames, colours and textures to get this style to work.

Stop it! I'm Floored!

Have you ever looked at a room in your house and wondered why its not working? Quite often we get the rustic furniture, vintage posters, colourful cushions and beautiful trinkets and still the "wow" factor is missing. We may have the secret and it is the way you dress your floors! Sometimes it can be as simple as a black and white rug to ground your things, or a colourful woolen rug to bring it all together. A natural woven rug can give you that organic feel or a rectangular, or cicular rug can shape your things perfectly.

We have been inspired by some pics we found online and on interior design blogs and honestly, its not hard to have that "you complete me" moment in your house. Check them out below.
