Can You Handle This: A Little On The Dark Side

Mysterious, moody, elegant – these are the terms that come to mind when you’re thinking about interior designs that feature a dark palate. Well, they’re all of that and more. Dark hued interior designs are all about emulating a rich sophistication that is equal parts decadent and elegant. Their use in modern and contemporary interior designs has turned out to be quite austere, simple and graceful. Let’s take a look at 5 interiors that are designed to represent the best of this dark side.

This interior design uses grey to bring out its inherent sophistication, but in a unique way. Grey is a color that is usually used in understated textures, but the designers here have taken a twist on the conventional by using actual prints on their preferred slate grey. As a result, the ambience of this space has become infinitely more trendy, chic and distinctive.

A darker take on interior designs always ends with a moody ambience. However, you can definitely make them stylish by mixing and matching textures and patterns. Take a look at this interior design; it uses various shades of grey in distinctly different textures to create an interesting combination. Moreover, the woody, chocolate hued furniture provides excellent contrast with the overall formation of this nook.




3. Framing always works

When all else doesn’t appeal to you, dark framing can always bring out the best in your space. Just like a perfectly winged eye-liner can make your eyes pop, similarly, some clever framing can give your space more depth. Its black, bold linearity adds an attractive quality that can be enhanced by other dark hued materials.



4. With accessories
