Embrace Your Dark Side With These 5 Interior Picks

Embrace Your Dark Side With These 5 Interior Picks

Nothing conjures up drama in interiors like black. As a colour, it is both modern and confident, but it’s also versatile, mixing well with natural elements like copper, wood and stone. Although dominant, dark tones can act as neutrals for statement pieces: a copper tap becomes the focal point in a moody kitchen, while stone dinnerware looks striking on natural linen. Not brave enough for dark walls? Add elements of darkness with sleek kitchen appliances or inky abstract artwork. Here’s 5 of our favourites…

1. Theo tableware, from €108, Inreda

2. The KitchenAid Mini Stand Mixer, €549, Harvey Norman
