Dark gray is lovely in a light-filled room from Skona Hem. Painting the cabinet the same color as the wall is a nice touch.

So many things to love about this room. The dark charcoal on the ceiling and walls and the rich jewel tones in the furnishings make for a rich, lush feel. Studio Ko via The D Pages.

And finally, the darkest of the dark: this cool interior from Est Magazine. I love how the different gray tones layered on top of each other create texture, while the light-colored ceiling (and those lovely windows) keep the room from feeling too somber.
