Good morning friends!! The last several posts I’ve had are mainly about progress on our own apartment, but I’ve been thinking a lot about dark moody rooms.
Maybe it’s because all the fall clothes have hit the stores and I’m waiting for the perfect opportunity to bust out my new faux fur vest. Maybe it’s because it’s been foggy and cold in San Francisco, and the drippy, dreary days have me ready to hibernate and think about pumpkin spiced lattes, and cozy nights, and big glasses of red wine while the wind howls outside. Or maybe, these rooms are just so beautiful and I can’t resist.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still craving warm weather and summer nights, but mentally I’m in the fall mindset. Don’t you think there is something so inviting about a dark moody room? It is an invitation for dim light, candles and ambiance.
It’s probably (definitely) not something I’ll be trying out in our current apartment, mainly because our place is not super large, and because all the rooms are pretty open to one another, but I’m really into this look – dark walls, dark furniture. IF (and that’s a big IF) I were to test this in our current place, it would probably be in our bedroom since it’s the most separate from the rest of the house, and because the dark walls, and dark furniture would feel really calm, cozy, and sleep inducing.
Normally, you’ll find rooms with dark walls and lighter furniture, or lighter walls and dark furniture, but I’m loving the combination of dark with dark.
Very pretty, but like you, I enjoy having our small little home in lighter colors.
When we win the lotto, I'll be sure to try this out in one of our many houses, ha! 🙂
I love this so much. I have been thinking about this for when we finish our office. I think my partner will need some convincing though. I think all of these rooms get more natural light than mine so it might just look dark and dingy.
