Dark blue walls and gold accents in the bathroom(via Design*Sponge)

When it comes to small-space decorating, the common advice is to go all-white on the walls to reflect the most light and make the space feel bigger. This theory made sense to me when I first heard it, and is a great way to brighten a room, but after painting my father’s entryway grey, I’ve begun to appreciate the value of darker walls in small rooms…

I’m honored to be sharing an article on my love for dark, dramatic wall colors on Design*Sponge today.  Head over to the site to see eight rooms that will make you forget white walls forever!

    My bathroom walls are tiled (white) 4 ft. up. The rest of the walls are white. I have navy and white shower curtain and would like to paint the walls. Walls go all the way around the room including tub area. Thanks.

  2. Oh, that’s great! Because I bought me a very dark grey that I want to use in the living room and was a bit uncertain of what to expect. Will check your article now. 😉

    • Aw thank you Kelly! And dark grey is so cozy in the living room, I used it in my dad’s house and it turned out really well!
