I think dark accent walls add depth to a light, neutral interior. Or even make at least one whole room dark blue, dark green or charcoal grey. Add some panelling or shiplap to a dark wall or room and its texture will add even more depth to the space. Dark wallpaper, like in the article, also adds texture as well as depth.

Don’t usually post photos but.. our house is a small Old Piggery . The blue is Breton blue with a grey/ white for ceilings and beams. It’s a little dark but I think of it as a cosy room . Our kitchen is lighter with more natural light.
