GET SOPHISTICATED WITH BLACK & DARK TONES
Most people don’t think of black or other deep tones when planning for an office. Dark walls often get a bad rap for making rooms look smaller; however they perform in compact spaces because the dark wall color tends to blur the edges of a room, especially when you paint the trim the same color. Darker colors react enthusiastically to the light throughout the day, especially when have a significant light source and use a full spectrum paint product. Dark accent wall act as a beautiful backdrop for built-ins since it allows your accessories to shine!
