It’s a long-held belief in the interior-décor world that white or light-colored walls are best for the home as they conduct the important task of making a space bright and inviting. However, emerging home trends are dictating a new direction towards moodier, more regal rooms.
If you’re considering an interior upgrade, dark walls may just be the update you’re looking for. Plus, there are hundreds of ways to increase the depth and darkness of a room without sacrificing light, including doing a single dark accent wall, offsetting dark walls with pastel furniture, or complementing darker tones with metallic decorative pieces.
If you’re brave, you could do floor-to-ceiling solid hues of navy, forest green, maroon, or even black. Alternatively, you could dip a toe into the trend by trying a serious hue in a smaller space, like the guest bathroom. There are so many ways to turn your living spaces into opulently appointed backdrops, and you’ll find plenty of inspiration in the gallery below.
