Cozy Drama


Step aside crisp white because bold black is about to steal the show. This dark color trend has been growing subtly from accents to furniture to walls and it certainly has not peaked yet. Now we’re not suggesting you go full on Addams Family and paint your entire home black, but we will dare you to take a walk on the dark side. Flirt with these deep, sultry hues and you will create a whole new level of cozy in your home that is mysterious and intriguing…

Accents || Fearlessly experiment with dark colors by sprinkling them throughout your home in the form of accents. Seek out an oversized piece of artwork, drapes, or a rug in deep tones and style it with the décor you have now. This is a great non-committal way to play around with these bold hues to see if you really like them. If not, then they are easy and less costly to remove.

Contrast || If you inherently like dark colors, but your walls are lighter try painting an accent wall to start. Pull the look together with a sofa or side chair in a shade that is a little lighter than the accent wall to create dimension and cohesiveness.

Immerse || Imagine dimming the lights and curling up in a plush throw blanket… that’s the feeling you get when you walk into a room with four dark walls. This daring design trend is great for the bedroom, as dark colors have been known to promote a healthy sleep environment, or in any room that is flooded with natural light.
