Dark walls in a small space don't have to be a bad thing if used the right way. Designer Gail Fedela used olive walls to open the space up, but kept it light and airy with lots of white in the window treatments, accessories and bed linens.
This bedroom starts with a neutral base—striking dark gray walls, a simple white bed—then layers in a myriad of interesting textures. The macrame hanging above the bed leaps out at the eye against the wall's gray. The bed has pillows and a throw made from patterned textiles in bold stripes and flashes of red.
In this stylish bedroom, painting the wall behind the bed a dark gray helps it recede visually, making the room feel wider than it actually is. The long curtains and simple coat rack add a sense of height.
This modern bedroom was transformed by adding new paint colors, including a gray accent wall behind the bed. A new ceiling fan was added, as well as green patterned curtains opposite the closet that serve as a door to the room.
Built-in furnishings like the bed and nightstands maintain a small footprint in this not-so-big condo bedroom. A gray-and-white color scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows open up the space and make it feel light as air.
