BACK TO BLACK.

January 31st, 2013

What is more chic than BRIGHT walls? DARK walls. Bright tones on your walls are so last year. My latest obsessions are BLACK, GRAY and NAVY BLUE walls. Dark walls are a great way to create a sophisticated, beautiful oasis in a space. Black, navy, and gray are staple neutrals in everyone’s closet, and these colors transfer from fashion to interiors seamlessly.

There is a reason why black is considered timeless: Think the “little black dress”.

GRAY is the perfect color to compliment any décor. Save the bright colors for your fabric and go with a bold dark gray on the walls.

Color combo: Emerald and Gray.    Gray is the perfect color for traditional rooms with a mod twist.

OR, if dark colors scare you, try an accent wall.

Dark doesn’t mean dreary. Elevate any space with a dark color. Black is back
