Lovely living room in darker colors

Beautiful rooms don't have to be lighter shades of color or whites. If you are brave enough, dark rich shades of color can make for a beautiful elegant living room. The living rooms below prove how lovely dark living rooms can be.

Bright colored furniture keeps this living room modern instead of stuffy.  The white vaulted ceiling and pastel area rug also makes a chic contrast.

This dark brown living room is yummy.  The artwork and pillows keep the area tailored with crisp graphics, and the shiny lamp and mirrors make for a polished look.

The dark gray moulding makes this living room masculine.  A large mirror behind the couch helps to amplify the natural light in the room.

I really like the exposed brick paired with the modern white chairs. The portrait is a fun nod to the room's historic past.

This room is painted a dark gray, but the amazing large windows allow enough light that the room doesn't feel too dark.  Those modern black and gold chairs are amazing too!

I wouldn't ever think to match a rug and wall in the same color, but it works here.  The gallery wall breaks up the wall from being a giant panel of blue.  The burgundy curtains and accents throughout the room complete the jewel toned palette. 

Do you or have you ever had a dark living room?  Did you like it?
