It’s true. Dark walls can actually make a room seem brighter.
It might seem odd, but on a dark day, dark paint may be your best friend!
In a room with dark walls, your pupils open up to adjust. When your pupils open wider, any light sources seem brighter, and everything in the room–including the art–will pop just that little bit more.
So hit your walls with some dark paint–that's Farrow and Ball Paean Black above, and then add some visual pop with graphic black and white prints like Breeze Graphic.
