It’s high time to put an end to all the prejudice for dark walls. If your home decor could use some redoing, consider including some strong accents of anthracite walls in it. Anthracite walls are perfect for modern interior design style. And there is no specific room that you should limit yourself to with the use of the color – it can work well literally everywhere!
One should not be afraid of bold home accents such as statement walls. Contrast, contrast and once again contrast – that is what such paint colors as anthracite were created for. Even though to some it might seem somber, it is mostly the right furniture and home accessories that decide on the final effect.
A black-and-white color scheme, now in a photo-negative version with the dominance of black. Natural wood and leather are what makes it a dream bedroom design of a modern day nomad – and after all we all like to surround ourselves with natural, high-quality materials and have a peaceful haven to enjoy our evenings. Big applause for the graphic on the wall.
Anthracite used for bedroom design could also be very appealing in slightly smaller amounts. Here is an example of a bedroom with a mostly neutral color palette. What distinguishes this design is the use of graphic lines – both on an artpiece and lamp. There is also a splash of gold paint in a satin finish (personally I would even add some more).
Having an anthracite wall in your living room may be a wonderful idea for those of you that are particularly keen on vintage. Colorful posters, ceramics, mid-century furniture – you name it – everything looks great on this background. The lively colors are toned-down with the dark anthracite shade, which allows you to display your enitre collection and still keep the interior harmonious.
When you think ‘anthracite’, kitchen design is not the first thing that pop-ups in your mind. But there it is, and, you must admit it – it looks fabulously in this vintage-industrial kitchen. Especially the green accents and plants are worth noticing – they make the interior look more homely. As the anthracite tiles used for the backsplash are quite serious-looking if they are being the only element of design, such warming up accents are necessary.
Anthracite shades are also great for 3d tiles, as the dark color – when the light shines on it – brings out their texture. In this dining room one can also notice well-used copper accents in the lamps; another great decision in the choice of interior design materials is combining lacquered parquet and rough wood on the tabletop.
Contrasting colors once again – anthracite walls serving as a background for delicate curtains and wooden furniture. The warm, bright accents of a brass lamps and yellow pillows enrich the design of this vintage style bedroom.
As you see, one should not hesitate to try out the darker colors in home decor. Sometimes a statement home accent, such as anthracite gallery wall is all an in interior design needs to be completed (and you would be looking for the solution for months… oh, we all know it so well).
