There’s nothing as beautiful as standing out in the crowd. That also applies to interior designs and home renovations too. When people walk into your home and all they can say is, “this can’t be real”. Yes, it is unreal, not because it isn’t possible, but because it is rare. It is a one in a million home interior decoration. Something you may never find in another home in Singapore.
Let me introduce you to something rare, unique, and daring for your home. It is a new trend modern aesthetic black interior. With dark walls, dark curtains, dark-coloured furniture that has a touch of selected bright colours, this interior design is a product of magical creativity.
Going dark may require a lot of boldness, but it has a lot of benefits, so it’s worth it. Aside from the fact that dark interiors are eye-catching, they can also serve as a terrific backdrop for furniture, pictures, and art. It also makes the home feel cozier, especially during the cold period of the year.
If you are already imagining redesigning and renovating your home immediately to this awesome style, let me take you through 5 things you need to consider while thinking of dark interior decoration.
For the monochrome dark home interiors to stand out beautifully, they must be complemented with modern bright lightings. The lighting will add warmth to the dark furnishing; giving it a homely tone that enhances what would have ordinarily been, a dull colour.
Although most of the pieces of furniture will blend with the main interior design colour (black), there will be a need to spice it up with a few bright-coloured pieces of furniture. Notice in the picture above, how despite being a sharp contrast, the orange-coloured sofa brings the room to life. The bright colour creates a similar impact in the dining as it stands faithfully in a corner, radiating the brightness emanating from the chandelier just above the dining table. Using a single colour for the floorboards, ceiling, windows, kitchen, bathroom, and doors might make the home appear spooky. Do well to add pieces of bright colours to provide aesthetic appeal.
Ceilings have always been underrated in terms of colour and style. In millions of homes, ceilings are painted with light neutral colours that go unnoticed. But, it is interesting that ceiling design ideas are now gaining attention with paintings and wallpaper and it adds so much beauty to the home. Although many people are afraid of painting the ceiling the same colour as the walls, it is, however, the most game-changing thing you can do, especially if you use inky mid-tone colours.

If you want to experiment with the dark interior, whether in the parlor or just adding a feature wall to a living room, be very cautious about the shade you choose. Note that many black paints have a blue undertone, which comes out great if you envisioned a slightly cooler colour, but ensure you for blacks with a brown undertone for a warmer, softer look. In the image above, the shade of black has a brown undertone; different from previous black shades.
Black seats beautifully on every wall and corner of the home. However, you can defy typical interior design stereotypes like not painting small rooms in a dark shade and avoiding colder hues in spaces facing north. Dark interiors are best suited on places where you want to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere, such as bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways. As shown in the picture, the dark furnishing gives the kitchen a unique sense of its own.
