Yesterday we showed you an assortment of all-white interiors, and today we're headed in the opposite direction, towards all things dark and moody. If you love black walls and velvet and intricate textures and the perfect place to curl up with a book on a cold winter afternoon — have we got a treat for you.

Above: this space from Milk Magazine takes black very seriously: black walls, black ceiling, black floor, black rug. It's the perfect backdrop for assorted textures and luscious velvets. Lots of light coming into the room makes everything glow.

This is Abigail Ahern's London home, from The Selby. It confirms what we saw above: that the way to make black on black on black seem wonderfully moody and not cavernous is to ensure that your space gets plenty of natural light.

All these dark things create a wonderful texture, and a dramatic backdrop for those few white pieces. From Anthology.

Black and white (but mostly black): dark and moody but also dynamic. Spotted on Nordic Design.
