A lot of people will tell you to stick to white or neural colours for decorating. While this can create a beautiful space, it is not always suitable and is definitely not your only option. You might want to consider using dark, rich tones in your design scheme. When done successfully, you can create a fantastic and bold look.

Dark but dramatic

You might think that the best thing for your dark small room is to paint it white but this can create a depressing look. You may want to take the opposite approach by embracing the lack of light with strong, dark colours.

The use of deep shades can result in a cosy, cocooning, luxury feel. It can provide an element of glamour and intrigue in whichever room you choose. You can also show off your cherished accessories better with a rich backdrop.

Easy to use
