Dark, urban chic, and gothic interior designs are all the rage these days. They’re very chic, sophisticated, and cosmopolitan – the perfect way to make an instant impression on anyone who experiences them. If you like calm, soothing dark coloured spaces, then here are 5 inspirations that will totally blow you away:
1. The classic living area
This living room is the perfect personification of cool, dark, and handsomely designed. While many of its walls and ceiling are done in stark white, the one accent wall, window blinds, and cloudy floor finish emulates an undeniable urban chic aura that you’ll love. You can create a similar space by using the same technique. It’s definitely an inspiring way to design contemporary spaces.
2. Emulating luxury
Dark colours are an excellent way to instill a sense of luxury in your homes. This living room emulates plush dark finishes that exude a city-like urban chic aura. The leather couch is especially gorgeous. Its lush chocolate coloured upholstery instantly becomes the focal point of the room and makes the space feel absolutely luxurious!
3. Find the perfect textures
One of the best ways to focus on dark colours in an interior design is to find the right textures for them. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the dark marble and wood textures couple really well with the matt finishes and accent furniture in a similar palette. This creates a lovely urban chic aura that elevates the entire vibe of the space. You’ll love articulating this technique in your own home.
4. Dark wood and warm light
This kitchen interior design is the epitome of urban chic because of the expert way wood and lighting have been combined in it. The dark and rugged texture of the wood makes a great base for accent lighting. Not only does it uplift the entire mood of the space, but also makes it feel utterly glamorous.
5. Sleek and minimalist
The thing about dark surfaces and textures is that they can make a space feel small. So, while this closet space is definitely the pinnacle of urban chic, it’s also designed to be as minimalistic as possible in order to keep it from feeling too small.
