Growing up outside of NYC, where up is up and left is left, walls are usually white. Inside the city, however, everything and anything goes. The interior design community has seen a lot of deep hued walls this summer and we think they are perfect for fall. Paint is one of the most transformative, affordable interior design moves you can make in your space. At Decor Aid we are embracing dark walls for fall (as you will see in our new office reveal – stay tuned) so we can hibernate-er, work in peace. A black wall does not construe a dreary feeling as one might think, but a cozy, grotto-like aura. Explore the images we’ve gathered and, as always, let us know if we’ve overlooked any interior gems.

Black Bathroom Walls
We love the intimate feel of this bathroom, where dark paint on the top half of the wall offsets the bright white tile. Choosing a dark tub to match-an expert move. See more of Amanda’s slate bathroom on Apartment Therapy.
Black Walls in Living Room
The living room of lifestyle and fashion photographer surmounts the level of sophistication we hoped for – this image is being re-featured (original IG post here) because it is that just that impressive. Image via Graham Atkins Hughes.
Black Trimmed Glass Shower Doors
A black wall in the bathroom paired with black trimmed glass doors creates a lovely contrast against the subway tile inside the shower. The bathroom is part of Jenny Wolf‘s project featured in Traditional Home. See it all here.
Dark Walls in Bedroom
An oldie but absolutely a goodie, this bedroom from West Elm’s catalog still has us wanting more nap time.

A black wall acts to transition the eye to the ground level in this San Diego loft. More images here.
Dark Walls in Kid’s Room
No one does it quite like Jenna Lyons, and we love her for it. Above is her son Beckett’s room from an epic feature in Domino Magazine.
