If you've ever set foot in ink & peat, you know we love a bright, airy space with lots of natural light! While we would never trade our many skylights and windows for anything (especially in the winter deep,) we've noticed an abundance of darkly painted rooms popping up in our daily search for unique, beautiful design ideas! There's a great deal of allure in creating a space with a darker backdrop. Subdued shades of black, navy, and grey all capture a certain twilight-to-midnight moodiness that invites a thoughtfully designed constellation of focal points. Pops of ultra-bright color, various shapes and textures, and timeless patterns stand out against the harmonious blending of dark paint and contrasting accents ... check out our picks!
