 Dark Wall Master Bedroom

Inspiration ⟶

Project Scope ⟶

Space : Dark Wall Master Bedroom

Price Point : $5,000-$10,000

Client Specifics :  Deep blue/gray walls, layered colors and textures, small workspace needed.

Final Thoughts ⟶

I love having the opportunity to work with clients that are open to experiment with bold color. Luckily, this project began with a specific request for deep, dark blue walls. I immediately got to work layering textures and colors to compliment the dark walls, and enough light sources to eliminate the somewhat "tight" feeling dark walls can create. I think the space turned out beautifully. I can't wait to play with dark color again!
