Inspired by Halloween, let’s explore some dark interiors that bring out the glamour.  Not all dark interiors inspire chills.  These rooms exhibit a chic and dramatic side to darkness.  Rich textiles, dark painted walls and accents that highlight the use of a dark palette give these rooms a distinct appeal.

A black and white dining room is clean, crisp and sleek.  The pattern mix creates interest and depth.  A flowing floral design in the rug anchors the space, while the interlocking structure of the geometric print on the head dining chairs anchor the table.  Damask wallpaper and striped chair backs add even more pattern.

Step into these bedrooms for a peek at the different ways that black can highlight a room.  An all-black palette needs depth and this is added with texture and varying shades of black.  Black walls can dress up a bedroom and make the walls recede, which opens up the space visually.  Adding creamy linens with splashes of warm colors make this room inviting.  Add glamour and sophistication with animal print accents, damask wallpaper and mirrored furniture.

Extend the drama with dark ceilings.  Outfit the room in comfortable furniture in muted gem tones for an old-world charm.  In the industrial space, take advantage of the natural brick and steel elements.

A dark color palette creates drama and impact in a space.  Furniture and textiles become the focus of the room.  Traditional spaces call for dramatic features, such as crystal chandeliers and gilded accessories.  Pattern plays well against dark walls and gives the space interest and depth.
