Dark Bedrooms: 5 Beautiful Black Rooms to Sleep In

Dark bedrooms are on trend

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 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 overly spacious, and most people sleep better in dark places (hence why we're big fans of blackout curtains.) 

Here's some bedroom inspiration for anyone thinking of going black.
