There is something magical and alluring about a dark, daring interior. As if colours are drawn to the darker shades of an interior wall, a home comes to life in bright shades that pop against a dark, neutral backdrop. Today’s home gets it right with beautiful finishes and bright accents that add daring contrast to the intensity of dark walls.
Charcoal interiors make for one of the most dashing interior colour trends of the season. In today’s lavish retreat, the use of bold charcoal in the living room creates a sultry, moody backdrop for the gorgeous choice of furniture to become the stand-out pieces in this space. A striking occasional chair, paired with a detailed runner and intricate prints evident in a lampshade, ornate framed mirror and bespoke wooden cabinet installation – the details merge together beautifully to bring style and contrast to this innovative area of the home.
The walls also become a showpiece for the owner’s collectables of art and vintage gold frames with prints. Rustic holders are also mounted to the wall and act as nifty storage solutions for decor and art – creating an eclectic and playful ambience in this space. Bright aquamarine furniture brings boldness and brightness to this space and we love the incorporation of tiny bursts of colour here – from balls of colourful paper chandeliers to polka-dot installations above the windows.
This whimsical and daring colour palette adds life and colour to the eclectic bedroom with beautiful brass poster bed and vintage floral bedding in bright shades of yellow and cerise. This space becomes a mix of old and new; modern finishes with vintage decor and furniture that’s reminiscent of an era long gone. If you’re unafraid of colour then this home is for you – it’s bold, bright and certainly not a shy space!
An unconventional pink cabinet is used in the bathroom – although a vintage find, it is updated in this modern shade of pastel pink to infuse the room with a newfound energy that is also picked up in the colourful shower curtain. Wooden walls, paired with modern white subway tiles complete this eclectic room. The overall feel is playful and inviting, far from serious or traditional, this room packs a colourful punch with a few quirky details including a pink flamingo mounted on the tiled walls!
The dining room is beautiful and on trend with black feature wall and rustic wooden furniture. A mix of modern decor accessories fill the wall, boasting an array of numbers and letters in this monochromatic palette that defines this space.
