I find dark spaces so intriguing, especially while white Scandinavian spaces seem to have been all the rage as of late. Nothing against white, I am just a bit tired of it. I have not regretted painting my living room dark grey (Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe) and I have plans to darken other spaces around my house. As soon as I get some breakfast in me today, I will be working on painting my bedroom a dark-ish colour – Farrow & Ball’s Mouse’s Back. The 100 m2 apartment of designer Sylvester Kotsolek in Berlin from Architectural Digest Russia caught me eye – because the entire space is black! This is so moody and gorgeous. Kudos to Sylvester for having the guts to go black.
OK, Morticia, if you say so.
I prefer rooms with light, all that black just sucks the light right out of the rooms.
I love moody, cozy, warm rooms! The wood is a nice contrast, too. It's just a matter of taste and what makes us feel good. No right or wrong. The kitchen is a bit dreary for me, tho.
Love it. Especially the black and green tile/bedroom/daybed. All I'd add would be a few soft rugs & a wood burner.
