Sweetly Stunning Dark Walls!

I’m on a permanent Spain high, and this space above in Barcleona is a perfect example of the design sensibility of total design giants, as evinced by the super slick, velvety dark walls that almost feel like they are covered in silk.

Dark walls are not for everyone.  But let me tell you, when they work, they are utter magic.  Sweet & stunning design inspiration of the day might move you to go darker with your own walls.

Mysterious yet softly textured.



When juxtaposed wth a pink celining you have a disarming duo.

Whe its well done, chalkboard paint just doesn’t get old to me.

It might not be black noir, but this dark grey does a sophisticated job!

And this, well, is the ultimate in richly fantastic fantasy and lusciousness in a bedroom.  Everything about this room sings with personality to warm the otherwise metallic grey walls to soft and calming.

Don’t be afraid of the dark… in fact, a little more dark even in smaller spaces (a darker throw, darker bedding) can bring the depth that you are missing to any room that feels a tiny bit flat.  Dark is as important as light!  xoxo Dana
