Bring Drama To Your Decor
As the winter evenings draw in it might be time to bring a warmer colour scheme into your home and nothing says warm more than the indulgences of dark and rich colours and textures, which create moody and atmospheric rooms.
Floor tiles can play a big part in the dramatic scheme, not only bringing a whole scheme together but also bringing a sense of solidity and permanence to the décor. Dark floor tiles teamed with dark walls suggest luxury and warmth and the benefit of using dark floor tiles is that they work with any style, from Gothic grandeur or movie star elegance.
For the wall use a palette of deep pinks and strong reds for a classic look or use dark blues, purples and moody greys, which suggest contemporary but sophisticated. If you’re looking for a bespoke look then go for colours that are slightly unusual. The colour of choice right now is a deep and moody aubergine, which is coming to supersede the most recent trend of dark grey tones.
Dark and sleek reflective surfaces increase the sense of drama so use black stained or dark wood polished furniture to bring added warmth and sophistication. That said, a dark moody scheme also makes a striking canvas for neutral accessories and furniture. Dark blue fabrics bring the hint of a Moroccan theme and the whole scheme looks intimate and inviting.
For an utterly unique look try using a dark wall tile on an accent wall, such as around a fireplace, especially a wall tile with lots of texture. This will bring depth and interest to the room and create that all important wow factor.
