Here are some thoughts about these spaces. They'll be used mostly for larger than normal family meals and holidays. At night. So how do you go about decorating a room for night time use? My plan is to embrace the darkness of it all.
Mario Buatta in Architectural Digest
Dark walls are a must. They make a dramatic backdrop for night time entertaining.
And do you know what looks amazing against dark walls? Gold accents! They add warmth and keep the dark spaces from feeling too somber.
Smart fabric choices are also important for night time rooms. I think it's a great idea to add in fabrics that have a sheen. Consider using silk
and/or velvet in your night time spaces.
And finally - have fun with it! Alex Papachristidis used modern art and textiles to add another dimension to this mostly classic living room.
So there you have it. Do you have any rooms you decorate specifically for night time use?
