The Dark Side

Simply You Living - - In Association With Lamont & Co -

Darker shades can work well, but stick to neu­trals such as blacks, char­coals, navy blues, choco­late browns and plums.

Go darker in a room for a co­coon­ing and moody vibe and add some brighter and hap­pier colours as ac­cents. De­tails like blan­kets, art­work, rugs and couches can all be in sim­i­lar tones but with tex­tu­ral di er­ences, and then use cush­ions, lamps and can­dles for pops of bright colour. Al­ter­na­tively, in­tro­duce a dark fea­ture wall in a room with two lighter shades for an airy but an­chored look.

Be­ware of reds, greens and mid-tone blues, which can at­tract too much at­ten­tion to walls, mak­ing a room feel smaller. Bold colours work best as ac­cents.
