Dark Elegance: the home décor trend you'll want to indulge in this year
Rejuvenate your living space with the innovative fusion of modern technology and vintage luxury of the Dark Elegance trend. Invoking opulent fabrics, rich colours and warm metallics, this home decorating trend can be applied to your linens, tableware and home décor to create a cohesive sense of stylish decadence in your space.
In the bedroom
Create a bedroom that oozes comfort and cosiness with the plush, textured fabrics that are essential to dark elegance. Deep blues and romantic purples used for bed styling will give your room a majestic feel - layer your bed with soft throws and cushions to create the perfect sleeping space that you can feel totally enveloped in.
Warm textures and clean patterns in bed styling create a busy space that is both pleasing to the eye and comfortable to rest in - a soft KOO Teddy mattress topper will tempt you to dive into your covers every night, snuggle in and enjoy the gorgeous space around you.
On the dining table
Recreate high dining in your home with tableware that's beautiful to look at and enjoyable to use. Dark navy ceramic plates and tea sets create points of contrast amongst the warmer colours, with pale florals adding touches of delicacy amongst the heavier hues.
Pair with gold accented accessories like napkin holders, candle bases and coasters to cut through the richness of these colours.
In the glassware
Choosing glassware with colour is a must - transparent greens, blues and mauves will add soft colours to your table without taking away from your dining ware. Glass candle holders and vases in richer magentas and pinks reflect the dramatic stylings of dark elegance, serving both function and fashion wherever you choose to display them.
Glassware with features like ridges, waves and diamonds adds an element of enjoyable texture to each piece, as well as visual interest.
In the material things
While it makes big statements with its accessories, dark elegance also celebrates the little things in home decorating. Texture and feel are paramount to creating the ideal experience - no fabric surface should be flat and unadorned. Soft, frayed edges and tassels edged on minimally-patterned blankets and faux-fur throws provide both comfort and style on couches and beds. Nature-inspired prints on cushions, as well as layered textures and rich jewel hues, ensure each one is its own work of art.
KOO Teddy bathrobes and hooded blankets are made from cuddly and soft fibres that will keep you comfortable no matter where you are in your home. Coordinate your home outfits with dark elegance by choosing charcoal, blush and teal colours for each piece of clothing.
On the walls
Intricate wall art prints of abstracts and detailed florals in magentas, blues and golds will transform the walls of your home into works of art in their own right. Exotic flowers and plants in dramatic colours celebrate the beauty of nature, while intriguing abstracts herald the modernisation of home decorating.
The frames should be almost as beautiful as the wall art prints they showcase - outline your images in matte black or soft gold to add a subtle touch of elegance to your living room décor.
In the little details
Eye-catching metallics and glass create beautiful highlights on tables, desks and shelves. Make your space a delight to explore and discover for yourself and your guests by adding small sculptures, bowls, jars and vases to your surfaces.
Candles can be used to bring warmth to any space while also creating a source for your metallics and glassware to shine from.
By focusing on the minor details in your home decorating, you can ensure that every facet of your home provides the detailed innovation that dark elegance necessitates. Shop the full Dark Elegance range online now.
