A room painted dark can be overwhelming. We tend to gravitate towards lighter color choices for our walls, but there is something incredibly appealing about the dark interiors beautifully photographed by Ludger Paffrath. Sufficient amount of windows, natural light, or a large open space make it possible for the interiors to still feel open and inviting. We love how the furniture and artwork pop against the dark walls and floor.
The closest we ever got to dark colors in our home is a mid-tone brown that has a lot of gray in it on one of our walls. It creates a wonderful contrast with a birch plywood bookshelf that is on that wall. Have you tried darker colors for your walls? Would you ever paint any of your rooms black?
