While it’s popular nowadays to have a minimalist, clean and predominately white home with safe, complimentary furnishings, there’s nothing stopping you from being a little edgier and bolder with your colour choices.
Creating a dark space in your home gives warmth and personality to that area, and you can easily achieve a moody look by combining dark paint colours together.
To balance this interior decor out, all you need to do is add splashes of metallic, bright colours, neon and white with lighting, accessories and soft furnishings.
Read on to see how you can add Dark Interior Design to your home.
When designing for a moody minimalistic interior, opt for furnishings and fixtures that also make a bold statement. One of the most beautiful (and ironic) things about interior design is that what often contradicts each other, can often compliment one another.
If you’re a little apprehensive about transforming an entire space – let alone your entire home – why not add a dark accent wall or opt for darker flooring? While black is certainly a colour you can choose when creating a ‘moody’ interior space, you don’t need to rely on it. Below are some great examples that show off darker flooring and walls that aren’t black, but rather shades of brown, navy and dark grey.
