Tired of plain white walls, soft pastels and beige everything? Then the newest design trend may be for you, especially if you’re looking for high drama at a low cost. It’s all about painting your walls dark grey or blackest black and using them as a backdrop to display colourful artwork, accessories and furniture. But it doesn’t stop with the walls. Ceilings, trim, staircases, cabinetry – you can go dark with just about anything, but maybe not everything at once. The secret here is contrast. Think a black wall with white furniture. Or a charcoal grey staircase with colourful artwork hung gallery style. And the best thing about this trend is that if it doesn’t work out or you tire of it you can simply repaint and start again.
