You’d be hard pressed to open an interiors magazine today without being presented with rooms bedecked in nearly black. It’s a recent favourite, especially in wall coverings. Farrow and Ball’s Railings must be the most famous deep grey paint colour on the market right now.
If you don’t wish to be that bold, you can test the waters by using it as an accent colour – in furniture, soft furnishings and lighting. It’s just the best colour for showing off brass, blond & chestnut coloured woods, yellows, lime green, blood red, teal and shades of white.
It works so well when hit by shafts of natural daylight and is quite magical by night too, lit softly by lamps or the flickering flames of real fires and candles.
All the photos that we’ve featured here prove that nearly black can work successfully in any room of the house. Go on, embrace the darkness! 🙂
