Charcoal Chamber - Dark Bedroom Decor Ideas

Charcoal Chamber

Charcoal or black walls won't feel closed-in if you have a bright white ceiling and floorboards as a counterpoint. If all the walls are dark, add color with carefully chosen decor that coordinates with each other. The throw and pillows on the bed pull their colors from a beautiful, patterned rug in gold, teal, violet and blue.

Pearl Grays

Dark gray walls look lovely if you layer lighter shades of gray and cream on the bed, creating an airy focal point. Texture becomes more important when the room is mostly neutrals; look for different weaves, embroidery, and pleating to add interest. If you want just a pop of color, look for something in color that's off-primary. The pillow shown here isn't orange, but a softer, warm apricot.

Dove Gray Serenity - Dark Bedroom Decor Ideas

Dove Gray Serenity

To avoid a leaden look in an all gray room, opt for soft shades of dove and ash gray rather than harsher, darker hues. You can use a gradient range of shades that are adjacent rather than contrasting to pull everything together. Curtains just a shade darker than the walls and a rug that fades from slate to cream give you depth in a monochrome room.

Potter's Pink - Dark Bedroom Decor Ideas

Letting in the Light

When you have a dark feature wall like this expanse of black, contrasting furniture and plenty of natural light will elevate the room and prevent it from being cave-like. To keep attention on the dark color, accent it with cream-colored accessories and furniture that lets the dark color show through rather than covering it up. A rug combining elements of dark and light successfully bridge the gap between light, airy furnishings and the richness of a black wall.

Potter's Pink

A dark bedroom with pink walls? It can be done if you choose a shade like Potter's Pink, which is a muted, toned-down shade with a touch of tan. It's not a girly shade at all and pairs beautifully with dark accessories. Look for draperies and decor in forest green, gray, and black for balance. Use a checked, black and white rug to provide contrast to dark floral fabrics.

Ebony Dreams - Dark Bedroom Decor Ideas

Ebony Dreams

Choose clean lines for furniture in dark colors. This ebony bedroom set is elegant and restrained, and benefits from just two other colors - cobalt blue and white. By keeping the color palette to a minimum, you highlight the beauty of the furniture. When the furniture is simple, feel free to add rugs and accessories like an ottoman and pillows that are intricately patterned to add interest.

Neutrality - Green Bedroom Decor Ideas


Neutral color palettes are another popular design choice, since the colors are easier to pair and play nicely with so many different colors. But what if you don't want to include other colors throughout the room to detract from the neutral scheme? You can certainly work with 100% neutrals, but adding in at least one plant like the hanging plant in the corner can serve as a welcome break from the scheme and add life to the room.

Playing with Patterns

When you paint walls in gray, they become a neutral backdrop inviting layers of texture. You can combine several colors and a variety of patterns if you stick to cool colors like navy, gray, off-white, and tan. By keeping all the colors in the same family, you a rich counterpoint to the warm, honey tones of the wood furniture and wicker accessories.

Do a modern take on traditional features to create an inviting dark bedroom. Wainscoting can be higher on the wall if you want a dark color to really shine.
