Mid-century living room for Black Walls Trending

Dark colours, including pure black, is currently trending as a colour for walls, particularly when used in apartments and in smaller rooms.

However, black is a difficult colour to deal with successfully and that seems to get harder the larger the space. The problem that I had in implementing this in my 3D created spaces was that I was soon overwhelmed with the colour when used as paint on the walls. This is due, I suppose, to the large area I was hoping to cover.

Not to be outdone, however, I experimented with a darkish wallcovering and ended up using one of my favourite colours from the mid-century palette: chocolate! Adapting this as a background for my ‘Pins And Needles’ design I successfully used it in the mid-century inspired room that I often use both for showcasing wallpaper and curtains.

The images above use this design for the walls and two new designs for the curtains and cushions. You can see detail crops that show these patterns as well as a larger image of the above on my Flickr page which is here.
