The Dark Side
I am currently loving high contrast colour use in homes, so I thought I might share some inspiration with you on how to use big blocks of black in your colour scheme.
Whether it be exteriors or interiors, black can be used for dramatic effect without feeling foreboding or claustrophobic. It seems the trick is balance, the colour black needs a partner in crime and wood, metallics or crisp white make the perfect combinations. The contrast of these tones or materials allow breaks in the colour which creates a sense of balance and avoids creating a cave like atmosphere.
Black also works for a multitude of styles, see below just how beautifully it can complement both a contemporary or classic style. A feature wall in black is the perfect colour to give extra depth to a space and also acts as a great backdrop to highlight artworks, photographs or special objects.
So can I tempt you over to the dark side with me?
