Yesterday, New York City woke up to a very rainy, gloomy and dark Sunday — one of those days that all you want to do is curl up and enjoy your home. So in that state of mind, I decided to dedicate today's post to exquisitely designed interiors with dark, but drop dead gorgeous ambiance. Not because you choose to use dusky colors in your decor means that they need to be gloomy. To the contrary, dark shades of gray and even black can create dreamy and cozy spaces. Just be smart about it and do it cautiously. Always use a dash of color to break up the monochromatic palette. So don't be afraid of the dark, dare to be stylish and bring some mystery into your life.
