Why it works: Painting all the walls in black Gloss is unusual and unexpected – but be ready for an effect that is quite overwhelming at first. Rest assured that once you get used to it, you will feel special every time you enter your home and the guests will be surprised.
Tip: For a velvety effect, try to paint the trim-gloss black and the walls in matte black.
Why it Works: The Feast, Matte Gray This waterfall concrete island provides a visual peace that all shine.
Why It Works: An all-gold room would be mostly bright, with black walls and furniture reducing the intensity. Plus, the black and gold elements complement each other, especially because you’re used to it, to the same extent.
Tip: The striped curtains tie the palette nicely together, breaking up the solid blocks of black and gold and creating a decorative bridge between the two.

Why it works: The wall is a great backdrop for the generous white tub, and is supported by a mix of black and white floor tiles. The monochrome palette can then be revived, with colorful decorative items such as towels, blinds and chairs.
Tip: I recommend using a black joint for these tiles. However, keep in mind that detergents and bleach can lighten up mortar, making it wonderful over time.
Why it works: Both the floor and the ceiling are highly polished and dark. This causes the filtered light from the curtained windows to bounce around the room, creating a glowing effect on the ceiling.
Why it works: The black of the walls looks like a huge frame around the pictures.
Tip: For customers who want to hang out the art I often recommend a dark-colored shiny wall. Even though the artwork is also dark, the effect works because the gloss of the finish creates a contrast.
Why it Works: A very polished, dark-colored floor can help send light into the room, something especially welcome when the walls are also on the dark side. Plus, a reflective floor can give the impression of cleanliness.

Why it works: The black grid of the windows allows the viewer to look out over them at the garden.
Tip: If you have a room with a floor-to-ceiling window, let in a little too much light, hang a sheer curtain to use if there is too much glare from the sun and the ambience of the room would benefit from the filtered light ,
Why it Works:By standing against the shiny black wall, the TV’s own black glass surface recedes.In contrast, the fireplace is a visual feature intended to be studied as much as it meant to warm the room.
