Some Inspirational, Delicious Dark Decor!
Posted on January 16 2019
To anybody who has had a good browse of our website, instagram or inspiration gallery, it should be obvious we are big fans of some good dark decor. A lot of our poster prints are edgy, dark, and perfect for creating a cosy, dark inspired interior. You can find all of these prints here.
Especially when the cold weather creeping in &the dark nights, we starting to crave change in our homes. The urge to draw the blinds, get the heating on blast and hunker down is strong, and of the odd large glass of red wine in the evening seals the deal.
Our Gold Skull Print is the most popular of our Dark Decor themed prints, injecting a touch of bling to a dark theme! It looks great paired with a Bright Neon Art Print.
Dark Decor doesn't mean painting every wall black and getting your dimmers low, it’s a little more involved than that. It’s not just about black either, Dark Forest Green or Deep Navy walls make fantastic feature wall colours. Farrow & Ball offer some amazing options, take a look at their Off Black such as Railings or Black Blue colours.
Inject Some Colour!
It's also a great idea to inject some bright vibrant colours into your decor, green and pink velvet textures and pattern cushions look brilliant in predominantly dark rooms. Remember Dark Decor doesn't have to be too dark! Think of it more as creating a cosy, inviting mood.

Clean walls might seem to be the obvious choice of backdrop for art, (think art galleries) many of our prints look fantastic hung against a dark backdrop.
