I always believed that dark bedroom walls work best in small rooms, those in need of visual downsizing, or places with little natural light. But using a “night-life” hue in the bedroom makes real sense considering all the light-blocking strategies we tend to employ in the bedroom. Lately, I’ve been trending on dark — really dark – colors. Dreams of an elegant bedroom that evokes the blue night sky just before dawn are, for me, truly conjured by the blue-violet walls designer John Minshaw used [top] together with a slightly lighter hue and a black-upholstered headboard. With everything so inky, the crispness of white bedding and the white door really jump out. I also adore the honey-color antique maple night table that feels as soothing as a hot drink on a cold night.
Paneled bedroom walls look so chic painted in charcoal gray and set off by a white headboard and matching hotel bedding with contrast embroidered stripes. A mid-century modern night table, contemporary lamp, Java floor and standing mirror push this room towards a modern attitude even though the paneling might suggest otherwise.
