Beginners Guide For Dark Interiors With Black & Grey Decor
Shaping Slick Dark Interiors With Black & Grey Decor
Dark and decidedly slick, these black and grey interiors push the boundaries on great taste and modern home design. Charcoal living rooms play on a theme of shadows and highlights to shape layouts that are intriguing and ambiguous. Slatted dividers, stone walls and textured elements take on added prominence in the low light. Graphite kitchens skim the edges of living rooms, falling away to let areas of comfort take the lead. Lounge furniture takes on a sculptural quality in stark surroundings, whilst cool art and contemporary home accessories shake up the darkness with quirky silhouettes and abstract motifs. Black dining sets are lit from overhead by eye-catching lighting designs that burn through the blackness.
Vertical radiators blend into the dark backdrop, placed either side of an undressed window.
A smooth wall of wood fronted cabinets washes warmth and lighter tone across the entire length of the room, with the TV mounted against one end.
Directional track lights highlight the wood grain wall, whilst leaving the black dining set in the shadows.
Single hung windows set narrow lightboxes into the stark backdrop.
The kitchen remains a secretive volume until it’s required for purpose.
At meal times, the wall of wooden storage opens up to reveal a section of kitchen shelving and base units.
Moody backlit shelves give the one wall kitchen the appearance of a wet bar, but a small hob in the worktop reveals its full function.
Our second home design features much larger windows, but the interior design is made equally dark with charcoal grey and black elements.
A pair of oval coffee tables scoop out the centre of the lounge, their rounded bases darkening into obscurity.
