Our Favorite Dark + Moody Paints

We love that dark and moody paint colors bring so much warmth into a home. Whether it be in contrast to white cabinetry or a light textile, adding in a dark paint color is something we are recommending often for the client that wants to add statement to a room without committing to a wallpaper or bold pattern.

1. Iron Ore

This is our go to for a dark gray paint color! We love that it adds warmth to any space (even though it's more of a true cool gray) and pairs so well with brass hardware + lighting.

We love Iron Ore for the client that has a heart for transitional design style and wants to add a bit of boldness to their home.

2. Urbane Bronze

We fell in love with Urbane Bronze when it was the color of the year in 2021. We even have a gorgeous main level remodel to reveal soon that features this gorgeous moody deep brown.

This color is perfect for the client's home that has lots of taupes and beige accents as it adds statement while staying extra warm + cozy.

3. Inkwell

We think this black paint with a hint of blue is the most beautiful deep navy we have ever seen! It contrasts so well with light and natural wood as well as white paint or light countertops.

Without leaning too heavy into the blue family, it can be used in a variety of design styles like coastal, transitional + traditional.

Designers Shelby + Katie both have dark accent walls in their homes and would love to help you add one to your home. Comment below your favorite color of the three!
