Dramatic Interior Dark Walls

Choosing interior paint colors for your home can be a daunting process, there are so many factors to consider.  Does it go with your furniture, finished surfaces, lighting, personality…etc?  Often times we ended up with safe, light, neutral tones that would work with majority of the items in our home.  For your next home painting project I would suggest to go dramatic and to go dark, really dark.  Dark paint colors can be as flexible as the light neutral paint colors.  They can work with a lot of shades and textures.  But coupled with something light or bright dark colors will create a theatrical contrast and really bring the room to life.  Here are some great examples of dark walls.

 

1. Bathroom doesn’t need to be in blues, greens, and whites.

‘Bloom Skin’: Issey Miyake’s Dancing Window Display

I am often inspired by store front displays — they create the first impression before you walk into a store.  The most inspiring ones are never obvious; they are usually an introduction to a story you are about to read.  It grabs your attention and makes you wonder.  For Issey Miyake’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection of ELTTOB TEP, he has enlisted WOW a visual design studio to create a stunning window display called ‘Bloom Skin’ out of a single piece of organdy fabric.  It is the same type of fabric used throughout his new collection.  WOW installed and aligned eight computer-controlled fans in the store windows and programmed them to rhythmically turn on and off.  The barely-there organdy fabric would then dance with a wave-like motion.  The simplicity and minimalistic nature of the design, in turn, brings a mesmerizing and powerful celebration of the dancing fabric.
