Dark grey modern decor is extremely versatile. Not only does it build undeniable drama into an interior scheme but it forms a terrific base for boosting colour accents, both bright and muted. A dark interior builds a feeling of cosiness by seemingly bringing far flung walls closer, and high ceilings lower. Lighting schemes become accentuated as fixtures burn brightly against shadowy surroundings, picking out edges and texture. In these two particular examples, we’re looking at how dark grey makes an atmospheric backdrop for mossy green elements and shades of yellow. The accents are sparing, but dark grey rushes in to fill the voids with its great visual weight.
