Design Trend :: Deep Dark Walls

Recently, I have been quite drawn to the darker walled rooms... whether it be a lacquered paint or a very dark wood paneling.  It is not anything I have ever designed in my own house and have only once or twice recommended to a client... But there is something lately that keeps drawing me in.  A coziness... a richness... a sophistication, perhaps.  Maybe all these "clean spaces" of late are leaving me wanting more.

I really like the old world glamour it adds to a room. Making a bold design decision such as this is not for the faint of heart...it shows you have conviction in your design style... and it definitely exudes a personal confidence, as well.

I am smitten... and cannot think of where to execute this fast enough!

What are your thoughts on the darker walls?  Yes or No??

  1. Dear Tiffany,
    Great post! Billy Baldwin and David Hicks also liked the dark lacquered walls, which are becoming all the rage again. If one can't afford a really good painter, then any color can be special ordered in a gloss finish, just need lots of sanding, primer, and prep for a nice finish. Fine Paints of Europe has an extra thick primer that helps to hide flaws. Enjoy!
