Eye Candy: 10 Stunning Rooms with Dark Walls (and Tips for Using Them in Your Own Home)

Dark walls can be so gorgeous in a home, highlighting any artwork or fixtures that you hang on them. But they can also be intimidating. Here are some beautiful examples of dark walls, along with a few tips and ideas for using them in your own space.   


1. Don't be afraid to use a dark color in a small space... here they've covered this small bathroom in lighter colored artwork for balance. [Photo: Design*Sponge]

2. This bold green paint job includes the ceiling - and a bright white rug on the floor.... again for balance. [Photo: Couture Carrie]

3. If you're nervous to paint an entire room, try doing one wall like they've done in this glamorous bedroom. [Photo: Live Simply]

4. This is the same idea - don't those white matted frames pop on that bright blue paint color?! [Photo: Laura Winslow Photography]

5. Here, much of the dark wall color is covered with wood tones and plants making it feel easy and natural. [Photo: Sit Read]

7. To balance out a dark color, you don't necessarily have to use white - bright pops of color work too. [Photo: Design*Sponge]

8. If you have tiling halfway up your bathroom walls, this is the perfect opportunity to try a dark color on the top half of the room. The color they've chosen coordinates nicely with the floor tiles. [Photo: House Nerd]

9. A more traditional style room with dark walls... and lots of rounded shapes to soften the overall look. [Photo: imoveisnatv.com]

10. And last but not least, the owners of this home have added molding and painted it navy blue too. Doesn't it go well with the beautiful rug? I would add some art to the walls for a gorgeous finishing touch! [Photo: Architectural Digest]
