Darker tones immediately make a room feel more intimate. Perfect for a bedroom, dining room or large living space. 

White on Grey

Grey walls in the bedroom act as a perfect backdrop for an all white design. Simple white picture frames and bed linen create a crisp, clean look against a darker backdrop. Try Winter Grey to get this look.

Dark Contrasting

To create contrast, try pairing dark coloured walls with bedding in a softer hue. Alternatively, pair pale grey walls with bed linen in deeper colours such as charcoal, navy or black.

Dark Shades

Incorporate dark tones into your furniture and décor to make them the feature piece in a room. Placed against a light-coloured wall, each piece will stand out as a key feature in the room.

Dark Tones in your Kitchen

Dark grey walls in your kitchen pair perfectly with light tan furniture for a clean contrast between surface and walls.

Tip: Use copper accents to draw extra light into the space , in your pendants or kitchen utensils.
