On this cold and snowy day in West Texas, I find myself dreaming of a dark, moody room to snuggle into by a roaring fire. In addition, I don’t think there is anything sexier in interior design than a dark room.
Dark Moody Rooms – Paint them Dark
Nothing can make a small room feel larger than painting the walls a dark color. For instance, painting with a dark, mysterious color disintegrates the edges and makes the room feel larger. In addition, the dark paint is a magic potion for small rooms, creating mystery and the allure of the unknown.
Above all, I love how the dark walls in the picture above provide a neutral backdrop for the gorgeous blue pop of color from the chairs. Similarly, they create a dark, moody room which gives a hint of mystery to the room.
For instance, the dark walls in the photo above instantly give this room a regal, luxurious feel with a hint of mystery. Similarly, the dark walls are the perfect canvas to highlight the fabulous artwork and create a mysterious feeling.
In addition, what about this blue room? I love how the deep blue gives the perception of depth and the lacquered walls add light and interesting shadows. Pairing the dark blue walls with the white ceiling adds a certain crispness to the room.
Sometimes moody, dark walls are the perfect backdrop for texture for a dark room. Little color is used and drama and dimension are added by varying textures of wood, velvet, brass and glass.
Are you ready for a dark moody room? Which one is your favorite?
