Make the Most of Your Matte Design

Color, shape, size, and texture are the leading forces in any interior design project. For a room that’s geared toward a dark matte design, you want to take color and texture into consideration. Here are a few ways you can bring this trend to life in your home:Freefall Sofa and Loveseat

  1. Add black or dark brown furniture to the room. Side tables, headboards, and lamps are some pieces of furniture that are easy to swap for dark models and they will dramatically enhance the dark mood of the bedroom or living room. You could also try navy blue living room furniture for a moody look.
  2. Swap hardware to add a subtle touch of dark matte detailing. We love to add black matte drawer pulls to chests, kitchen cabinets, dressers, and TV cabinets. Add extra drama with oversized hardware to really make the color and texture pop.
  3. Incorporate decorations with brown or black iron wall art, shelving, or abstract pieces. You can get really creative with this idea! Simply shop for decorations you love that come in a dark matte finish! Stage anything from book covers to paintings around your room.
  4. Cover your walls in a matte wallpaper. There are countless designs to choose from that will give your walls a dark, chalky texture. You can even try temporary wallpaper so you can switch out the design as often as you please. We love wallpaper because it’s a simple way to add tons of color and visual variety to your room.

It’s surprisingly easy to add multiple dark matte accents to your home. Use these tips for quick inspiration, or come up with your own ideas! Let us know how you plan to add dark colors and matte textures into your home in the comments below!
