Tip of the Week: Dark Walls in Small Rooms? Yes!

If you’re tired of painting all your small rooms white, try adding a boost of color. While you may think that painting small spaces a dark color is the equivalent of failing “Home Decorating 101”, don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone. Rooms with plenty of light showcase dark hues and by adding stylish furnishings, linens, wall accents, or other accessories you can bring dimension and drama to your room. White accents against dark colors like this room really pop and appear to push the walls outward. The trick is balancing the perfect shade with the right mix of accessories to create architectural character and appeal. Those drab walls will reflect new life with the perfect dark color!
