As one wise man once said, "be brave - do not be afraid to paint the interior in dark colors, it does not mean that as a result you will find yourself in a hellish darkness." If the room lacks natural light, no bright colors will replace it. Instead of them, choose the deep blue or saturated blood-red tones. As a result, you get the interior cozy, soft, enveloping. The same method will benefit both the dreary rooms, in which there is nothing to stop the eye: a well-chosen dark shade will transform such a room beyond recognition. We have selected for you examples of masterful use of dark colors in the interior. Do not be afraid of the dark ...
In this drawing room, a linear graphic pattern, created with the help of wall decoration with ceramic tiles, sets the ultramodern style in the interior.
LIVING ROOM IN MODERN STYLE WITH WALL BATH
In the spacious living room, three large, rough-looking wooden panels, painted with an elegant floral pattern based on the picture of Botticelli's "Spring", are set at the dinner table. The interior of the room is made in cool colors, creating a relaxing mood, and it seems completely different from Paris, where it is. The flooring of wide wooden boards is complemented by natural fabrics in muted tones and stylish, sometimes somewhat eccentric furniture.
The walls, painted in a deep blood-red shade, represent a luxurious backdrop for the painting of the authorship of the Spanish-Cuban artist Jose Segura Eskerro and for the lampshade made of an old sari.
To design the interior of this house, designer Robert Moore chose: velvet upholstery for a sofa of a rich yellow shade, paint for walls of deep dark blue and white carpet with a geometric pattern.
HISTORY FOR A NEW LAD
This apartment is located in a house built two hundred years ago. Its new owners decided to give it a modern look - and they did it, with the help of impressive color solutions, elegant furniture and wisely organized useful space. In the living room, which you see in the picture, shades were used, which in a special way "play" after sunset (at this time of day the room is used most often). Corrugated curtains were chosen specifically to emphasize the magnificent architecture of the room, and also to cast a soft, pleasant shadow.
IN RED TONES
In this apartment, the walls and wooden panels, painted in deep red, create an incredibly luxurious impression. Easy surface finish with varnish reflects the soft light emanating from the magnificent Art Nouveau suspended chandelier.
PANELS OVER THE HEAD
Designer Adam Bray turned the design of this apartment in the style of the eighties into something that, in his words, simultaneously seems "dark, impressive and sexy," using a combination of a deep blood-red shade and olive-green.
A corridor or a landing is an excellent place for a bookcase full-length. According to designer Emma Burns, do not be afraid of large scales: the interior can look pretentious and cozy at the same time.
A rich color scheme in the design of this library was set by a painting of the sixteenth century by Francesco Morandini. The redish wood of the bookcase is combined with warm brown shades and creates an excellent background for antique art objects.
SUCH WARM BLUE COLOR
The combination of noble blue and cream-white shades gives the interior of this bedroom from designer Paolo Moschino marine motifs.
The decoration of this bedroom is incredibly impressive, and yet restrained. Beautiful symmetry, no congestion in details, elegant decor elements that do not conflict with the dark shade of the walls. Light colorful strokes are added using pictures and a table lamp.
Designer Keith Kemp skillfully combines bright shades and patterns with refinement, which never seems superfluous. In this room at Ham Yard, the blue walls emphasize the bright upholstery of the bed head and the same curtains. The upholstery of the seats in the polka dots overlaps with the cushion covers, and the striped ottoman at the foot of the bed creates a balance in the decoration.
Roman curtains in the bedroom of designer Mark Smith are made from the same dark green wool that covers the walls. Even the frames for the paintings were painted in the same shade.
A DARK ROOM
This enchanting bathroom with a chandelier in a neo-modernist style really exudes a sense of elegant luxury.
BEAUTY OF ART
In this bathroom, the coal-dark walls represent a spectacular backdrop for original paintings depicting volcanoes, and for socle shelves decorated with coral branches.
