Whitewashed interiors have graced the pages of modern interior magazines and blogs for the past few years, so it was only natural for the trends to change to something dramatically different. Cue the arrival of dark rooms, featuring inky blue walls, black furniture and dark grey home textiles. While we prefer light colours to enlarge living spaces, the bedroom is one place where black, grey, or navy shades can work. Bedrooms don't need to be spacious and most people sleep better in dark places (hence why we are big fans of blackout curtains.)
Here's some bedroom inspiration for anyone thinking of going black.

Walls don't get much blacker than this. White pillows and a picture frame with white mat brighten up this bold, dark room. (Source: My Domaine)
