It’s fall and it’s the best time to embrace dark colors! Dark colors don’t always mean gloomy shades, they can be refined, chic and very relaxing if you pull them off right. Today we are going to have a look at the coolest dark living rooms.
How To Decorate Your Living Room In Dark Shades
First of all, choose your style. Dark colors can fit almost any décor style: modern, minimalist, vintage and they are traditional for masculine spaces. Second, choose the colors. Dark and moody spaces don’t always mean black, it can be grey, dark green, purple or blue. Molding on the walls looks very good, especially in graphite grey or black. Accent walls aren’t necessary because they there will be many more other accents in the room.
Now consider your style and choose furniture according to it. To make your living room more eye-catching, you can take bold upholstery and unique shapes to make your moody living room pop. A single sunny yellow sofa in a dark graphite living room looks stunning and makes a statement. Emerald or indigo upholstery will add a refined, decadent and soft look to the room.
What can add to your living room décor? First of all, a fireplace. It may be non-working or a real one, with candles or logs inside, decorated with molding or stone around, and it will definitely add more coziness to your living room.
Lamps and lights can be used for accentuating a space. Bold brass chandeliers, unique mid-century modern floor lamps or geometric pendant ones taken in various colors will pop up in the interior besides giving some light.
How To Make Your Dark Living Room Stand Out
Dark colors can be too gloomy and depressing if you choose only one shade. Then you can play with textures and try brick, stone, wood, marble, metal and other materials to make your living room stand out keeping this monochromatic décor.
Another idea is rocking different shades of one color. If choosing bold upholstery and brass isn’t your choice, then take different shades of one color, for example, grey, and stick to it.
One more idea is rocking various accessories and decorations. Candle holders, copper details, oversized artwork, lanterns and various decorations of your choice will help your living room to look good and stylish.
Keep light in mind if you don’t want your stylish dark living room look too boring or moody. Opt for big windows and hidden lights for creating an ambience. Also consider making several layers of light to make it more functional and to have an opportunity to illuminate the whole room.
