The Dark Side

Sometimes I like light and bright. Sometimes I like dark and cozy.











O.K. This last room isn't that dark but it sure is cozy...I would love to curl up in one of those chairs and read a book, sip my Diet Coke and eat popcorn. Could someone watch Butterball for about an hour?

What about you? Want to come over to the dark side?

  1. Sissy, I love how you write. Did you notice that all these {very good looking!} dark rooms have lots of bright features- fabrics, books, art?! That just makes the rooms!

  2. I go between light and dark too. I think I lighten up in the summer, and go to the dark side in the winter.

  3. I like to switch things out in the winter to make it cozy. I have deep red pillows on my sofa right now, but in the summer months I'll switch them out with lighter colors.

  4. Absolutely a dark side girl, at least in my dreams. Miles Redd is my go-to dark & cozy decorator.

  7. I am definently all over the map with bright or dark - I even like all white. The common thread is that the rooms all have personality and pull you in! Love navy blue walls right now!

  11. I love dark walls. I've seen so many gorgeous black and navy blue walls lately that I am tempted to try it... but then I fear one day I'd come home and be bummed out by the dark colors...

  14. I love dark and cozy this time of year!!!
    I will say, though, I think it's important to have good natural light for dark and cozy.

    I'm saving several of these images for my files - they're wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing!

  15. I've always love white and light. But a friend recently painted her trim/bookshelves black and I'm loving it!
