Decorating Dark, Moody Bedrooms


For 2015, dark color schemes in the range of deep, saturated colors are definitely trending. This post will spotlight the dark, moody, perfectly sultry bedroom and, if you are so inclined, will hopefully help you as you go about creating one of your own.

A dark color will set the stage and create a sense of intimacy for a classic romantic bedroom. Wonderfully intense shades will give a bedroom a sensual atmosphere. On the other hand dark bedrooms can be cozy and warm, perfect for those who tend to want to bury themselves beneath the covers. Either way you win with a dark bedroom.

Be bold - add drama and personality to a bedroom with dark, intense paint colors.



Music for setting the mood!!



These rich and sophisticated colors add an air of mystery to this fabulous dark bedroom. I adore these colors!


Many people are suffering from "white fatigue" and are looking for a dramatic bedroom makeover. This image is an example of how you can achieve a dark, moody bedroom that still balances a masculine and feminine look.


Moody greys can be a comforting color scheme that suggests a quite, reflective mood. Good lighting and creamy accents make this bedroom's owner comfortable and assured of a good night's sleep.

Alternatively, use black to create a dramatic, nocturnal look that injects a mysterious mood in your bedroom.


Many of you love the sophistication, lushness, and downright sexiness that darker colored home furnishings bring to a bedroom. Wood paneled walls also have a way of darkening a room while still adding a cozy feel.

Your bedroom will definitely take on richness and sophistication with some moody, dark designs elements.


A touch of fur and flowers of course help a dark bedroom from becoming too masculine. Also a bit of whimsy is nice.


Dark, moody walls in black will be the perfect backdrop for the metallic madness that has taken over. Dark walls teamed with soft metal accents, such as brass and copper, create a truly glamorous interior.


You can create a dark moody bedroom with the right wallpaper as well. Plus wallpaper like that above and below gives a richer, sensual feel.


I love tapestries and have used mine to darken my bedroom even though it is painted a muted color that is actually not that dark.

Just like dark furniture and accessories pop on white walls, light accents pop on a dark wall. You can liven up a dark bedroom so it doesn't become depressing by using the right amount of lighter accessories and accents.


I like the feeling of being encompassed by the room and this pretty dark bedroom does just that!

Even though this bedroom is saturated in dark teal the good lighting and lacquered ceiling keep things from feeling claustrophobic. 



Teal and grey is a pretty combination to consider for your dark, moody bedroom.

Bright colors really seem to pop against dark tones that are naturally devoid of light. Just use them with restraint or your dark bedroom will lose it's cozy, sensual appeal and start to look cluttered.

Dark colors won’t necessarily make a room smaller. Dark colors recede. When a room is painted a dark to medium color, the color will actually make the room look larger rather than bringing the walls in, which is a common concern.

A deep shade of blue can bring drama to your dark, moody bedroom...............


..........or coziness depending on how you dress your bed. Again flowers or a crystal candelabra, like in the image below, can go a long way to preventing your dark bedroom from becoming too masculine.


To pull off a room this dark, you have to start with a space that has good lighting, or you’ll end up feeling like you’re in a cave.

This dark atmospheric bedroom is sophisticated and quirky.

This dark bedroom is romantic but at the same time simple and rustic. This keeps it from becoming overly feminine.

This bedroom is dark and moody because of the deep shades of green, red, black, and purple that are used throughout. The white touches of bedding and the reflective surfaces provide a good contrast.


Incorporate items that are reflective like the mirrored pieces to help your dark bedroom not be too overwhelming during the day.

  1. I love the dark bedroom. I'm glad to see many ideas here on your site. I was thinking of doing a dark grey wall behind the bed and then going a lighter grey on the other walls. After seeing these beautiful dark rooms I'm really thinking all the walls should be dark, but if I do that, what color would your recommend for trimming around the door and window? And would you go with a slightly lighter ceiling?
