A clever use of black

It seems my latest obsession with dark walls is sticking around. I came across this stylish office space by interior designer, Autumn Clemons of design*dump and wanted to share with you.

This is the 'before' shot of the space:


And the 'after':




I'm usually the first to pick up a paint brush loaded with white paint when tackling a bare room but the use of black on the walls in this space is clever for two reasons, I think - 1. the black bookcases recede into the wall and the items on the shelves become the focal point and 2. the two-toned french doors and frame become a feature of the room.


The wooden floor and furniture looks great against the dark walls. Another interesting feature is the design of the floor that mimics the structure of the ceiling. A clever way of tying the room together, don't you think?
