This or That | Light & Dark Decor


Happy Thursday everyone! Hope your week is winding down ;) Today I have a design question for you; do you tend to be drawn to light bright spaces, or dark & cozy rooms? Does it depend on what room is being addressed? Just take a look at your Pin boards to easily figure out what you prefer! I constantly find myself switching around ... for example, I've always been CONVINCED my dream home would have a dark & delicious office/library, but then I came across this white office on the left:


... on the flip side, I was always CONVINCED I wanted a bright and airy closet, but this rich & sophisticated one on the left somehow draws me in!


Do you change your mind and flip flop like this?




Are you drawn to the bright spaces, or the dark? Or do you fall in between, depending on the spaces? I'd love to hear!

I've always been a "white" girl (no pun intended!) but later, I'm loving black cabinets and doors. Look is like it's time to paint!

I like whit, especially in the kitchen. But tend to enjoy black more in other places like the living room, bedroom and powder room.

I love white. But I love black or dark grey in the bedroom.

Oooh, I love them both. I think it definitely depends on the space but I do find myself loving bright spaces in the warmer months and then craving dark spaces once winter comes. Strange, huh?!

I fall in between. I think some rooms are better suited bright and white and others darker with contrast. My problem is I don't know what to do where, especially paint color wise.

Thanks for the beautiful kitchen photos. They are inspiring! DH and I are in the planning stages of redoing our galley kitchen and all those questions of color choice, cabinet style, etc. are boggling our minds.

Great post Nancy! I love white and light usually but a dark moody library room or sitting room is always a winner!

I always love the black and white color combination. Your design and decoration looks captivating.

In my boyfriends apartment I painted 3 of the bedroom walls black, the closet wall fire engine red, white curtains and white bedspread. He said it looked like an abortion from the inside. But life continued - he and I did not - and I have learned to moderate. A lot.

Love your post. Ann
