Guest Post * Design Shuffle

Hi! I'm Joanna, a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, an interior design site for designers and enthusiasts to share design portfolios and decorating ideas and trends. On any given day, you can find me searching the web and gathering the most beautiful interior designs to share with readers of blogs such as Love Design. Thanks for allowing me to share today. If you cringe at the thought of inky black walls or deep navy cabinetry, then this post is for you. Today, IĆ­ll show you how these and other dark, rich colors can create the most beautiful of spaces. After viewing the following rooms, please leave a comment and let us know which is your favorite.

   Dark Walls 
  This elegant, sophisticated dining room makes an excellent case for charcoal walls and ceiling. The contrast between them and the turquoise and white furnishings works perfectly.

 Deep eggplant is a most unusual color for a bathroom with a claw foot tub, but again, this room works beautifully as well. The yellow chair is brilliant against the rich walls and window panels.

 Is it another eggplant room or a matte black? It is a bit hard to tell but I like it regardless. I'm loving the massive, ornate Moroccan style floor mirror, lots of decorating ideas here.

If these funky purple walls could talk what do you think they would say? The rug is a bold move with the already "shout about it" wall color. Easily enhance your living room designs with bold color.

             Dark Walls
This room's colors are rich and spicy. The contrast between dark walls and avocado furnishings works nicely.

 Navy blue is my new favorite hue for walls and ceilings. This space is simple gorgeous. What do you think? Does it inspire any interior design ideas?

               Dark Walls Chocolaty walls make a nice canvas to highlight the white sofa, lamp shades and framed prints.

I just can't get enough of black walls. The fun chair and other modern accents give this room a young hip vibe.
