If you want to test this trend out without committing to a whole room makeover, painting an accent wall is a great place to start. Not only is it a beautiful way to draw the eyes but it also creates a captivating backdrop for wall hangings and décor. Some colors and ideas worth exploring are dark blues, greens, browns or even peel-and-stick wallpaper to introduce pattern.

2. Dark Furniture

Don’t feel like picking up the paint brush? You can opt for dark furniture! Placing a dark colored couch in your home, especially a velvet one, adds a statement of intimacy and sophistication. You can also add a coffee table or bookcase stained with a dark color to help transform the vibe of your interior.

3. Accent Pieces

Besides the obvious dark color integration, another effective way to achieve a moody look is with art and accents. Hanging artwork adds depth to your home. It is common for moody spaces to have a vintage inspiration, so this is the perfect time to hunt for décor that evokes emotion and adds to your aesthetic.

Decorating with textures will enhance your sophisticated look as well. A set of velvet window curtains, metal candlesticks or even a faux fur throw can help intensify your look.

4. Utilize Natural Light

To create a moody room that doesn’t feel too closed in or heavy you should do your best to utilize natural light. Having sunshine peek into your space can enhance any contrasting décor you have and keep you connected to your design.

Whether you combine all these tips or mix and match your favorites, these styling ideas are sure to help you design a moody interior.
