Dark and Light – Contrast

The play of dark and light colors is a very common trick in interior design. First, it is simply beautiful. And secondly, it allows us to create dynamic relations between the different elements in the room. In most cases, dark and light combination is meant to create a contrast in the interior design. The most common interior design contrast is the one of black and white. But, you can create it with a lot of other options, whether you choose dark and light shades of the same color, or mix different colors, such as black with yellow. The dark and light also allows us to create a prominence.


As mentioned above, prominence can be created by choosing dark and light colors for the interior design. It can also be created by choosing different colors, not necessarily opposite to one another. Creating prominence is pretty easy – the idea is to choose one color for the object you wish to emphasize over the others and a different color for all the rest. If you choose more than two colors, the effect will be softer. For example – white flooring, white furniture and purple carpet. The carpet will stand out strongly. Those combinations can also allow us to create dramatic effect.

For example – choosing vivid colors in the kids’ room so the atmosphere in it will be youthful and playful and will encourage the imagination of our children. We can create a romantic atmosphere in the master bedroom by creating a dramatic design. We can create a warm cozy and welcoming atmosphere in the living room by choosing rustic design style, painting the walls with warm colors such as orange, and choosing furniture that are mostly comfortable.


Light is also a great interior design tool that allows us to create contrast, prominence, drama and atmosphere in our house. We can choose bright light to emphasize the entire design. We can chose dim light in order to create a romantic atmosphere. We can chose spot lights in order to emphasize one element over the others. And we can also use light in order to create contrast.
