This week, Jo Wilson from Brighton asked: “Dark paint colours are a big trend right now. How should I use them in my home?”
We’re so pleased you asked this question, Jo. Many of us assume that painting our homes in darker colours will make our space look gloomy, small and claustrophobic, but that’s not the case. When executed properly, dark colour palettes can be cosy, dramatic and energising.
Everything from room size to lighting can affect how you choose a colour scheme for your space, so to help you make confident colour decisions, we’ve pulled this video together for you, along with some top tips below. For more advice, check out our guide to choosing your perfect paint palette. We look forward to seeing what you do with your space!
