How much black/dark grey is too much?
April 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have an open concept kitchen, that flows into the dining room and beyond to the living room. I planned to have black quartz installed on the center island of the kitchen, a dark grey black wallpaper on the wall of the dining room behind the china cabinet and a dark charcoal grey leather sofa in the living room. We have large south facing windows in each room and planned to paint the walls a buttery cream color with white trim. Kitchen cupboards are a honey oak and we don't plan to change them. Floors will either be a medium oak hardwood, or a vinyl tile (grey, brown, cream). Now I am thinking perhaps the look will be too high contrast, what do you think?
