Color Inspiration: Dark Wallpaper

While watching the season premiere of Boardwalk Empire this Sunday, I kept focusing on the wallpaper that popped up. Much of it was dark and moody (a la gangsters and illicit trade), but it all had a refined style befitting homeowners with deep pockets. Even if prohibition isn't your thing, perhaps you can get behind some pretty, dark wallpaper.
