Over here at Bobby Berk, you know that we don’t shy away from a dark inky color. Have you seen the all-black kitchen we designed? But, how does the moody tone hold up in the bedroom?
There are some that say that having a dark color in the bedroom neutralizes the space which then promotes a more restful night. And others that say that the dark color makes it hard to do anything (besides sleep) in your bedroom because it sucks the light out.
While we can’t confirm or deny the actual sleeping benefits of having a dark bedroom. We love it either way, and we love seeing it used when done right. So how do you do it right?
We’ve talked about how using a dark color on your walls can make your space feel larger and more open, and today we are leaning to the dark side by pulling together some of our favorite dark bedrooms for your viewing pleasure. We’ve got a roundup of all of our favorite paint colors, and if you aren’t ready to fully commit, keep scrolling to see our suggestions to bring in the look in a little more subtle way (hint: it’s easy and affordable).
HOW TO BRING BLACK INTO YOUR OWN SPACE?
So what happens if you aren’t TOTALLY ready to join the dark side? We suggest bringing in the color by adding dark sheets and blankets into your room. It’s a very non-commital way to try the color out and can always be mixed with existing white sheets to give balance to the look. We’ve linked up a few of our favorite blankets, sheets, and pillows above to get the look. Do you think you could bring the black look into your own room?
