You might see a theme developing here on my blog, I am heading towards the dark side, the dark side of interiors that is… I posted about my love for Farrow & Ball and my obsession with the Dark Kitchen trend, and obviously it doesn’t stop there. I’ve said quite a few times now, that while my current house is teeny tiny, I’m hoping to move at some point this year (more about that in this post) and fully intend on dipping my toe into the dark side of interior decorating when I’ve got a bigger space to work with.

This post is going to be a similar style to the Dark Kitchen trend post, basically I’m creating myself an online mood board from the super talented people of Instagram and specifically the ones in my saved collections tab – enjoy! (make sure you follow these amazing accounts too… and mine if you want to!)

Navy is one of my all time favourite colours and seeing this amazing Navy wall on @little_york_house feed made me fall even more in love with the dark wall trend. The white accessories help to lift the room and makes the rich tone less scary.

@whitfield_no5 is one of my favourite accounts to follow. She does monochrome perfectly in every room and this black bathroom is no exception. The contrast to the white subway tiles lightens the space a bit but is still so striking.

@melaniejadedesigns shows that going to ‘the dark side’ doesn’t have to mean Farrow & Ball Railings… this beautifully rich green colour is simply stunning.  I love the contrast with the natural wood tones and bright plant details.

Alex from @thefrugality is in the middle of a huge home renovation (while heavily pregnant – hero) and her style is so perfectly curated and classy. She decorated her office in this beautiful green/blue tone and I’m seriously in love with it. Again, I love the contrast of the lighter toned wood against the dark, moody walls.

@renovating_no_24 has incorporated two of my favourite trends in one room.. panelling and Navy.. my dream room. The contrasting white ceiling, woodwork and shutters mean that the room is still flooded with light – probably my favourite out of them all!
