This kitchen has dark floors, cabinets and ceiling yet because of the heavy lacquer, it reflects light beautifully.
The white furniture and accents in this space help offset the darker colours on the wall.
The Asian influences here are many and I absolutely love this space. Everything works seamlessly together, from the grid accents of the wall panel to the curved legs of the table
and the playful plants.
The blue walls here work very nicely with the natural wood elements and the brown chair.
Now let's look at dark bathrooms. Even in the smallest bathroom, with or without windows, dark walls seem to work. Here are a few of my favorites.
If you are going to go with purple, go all the way!
Simple. Although I think I would have gone with a white toilet seat. I generally don't like decorating with words or sayings but the quality and size of these letters save it from looking cheesy.
The best for last! The walls are rich, with art from floor to ceiling. A nice quality rug over deep wood floors (not enough people realize that wood floors in a bathroom is often better than tile, especially if you live in a cold climate - like Sweden. But that's a blog for another day.) This look is super easy, relatively inexpensive and anyone can do it.
