The move towards using darker colours on the walls in our homes has gathered pace over the last few years. Feature walls were the stepping stone – a way to bring in a darker tone, but with the safety net of more familiar, lighter shades surrounding it. Then kitchen cabinetry became a place to experiment with deeper shades like charcoal grey, navy and bottle green. Having lots of appliances, work surface space and crockery or glassware on display means the depth of colour is easily broken up and feels a touch less daunting. But now, our homes are gradually getting braver at taking on darker paint colours. We’re using them in bigger ways. We’re letting paint bring out our courageous side. If you’ve been tempted by the dark side, read on for inspiration on how to use our deepest shades in a confident way.
