Sophisticated dark interior decors by Melissa Collison

Sydney-based Melissa Collison is a very talented interior designer that can adapt her decors to the surroundings and wishes of the clients. A truly talented designer is someone who can go out of their comfort zone and create contrasting and unique decors, just like a talented actor is one who can embrace all genres. Melissa showed us her real abilities as a decorator when she included in her portfolio decors that don’t follow the same pattern.

These are some of her dark interior decors. It’s the dark side of her creations and they are very beautiful. We can clearly see that the decors are cohesive and that everything combined perfectly. The attention to details is amazing and the results are quite impressive. The color palette for these decors includes deep and rich tones of black, grey, brown, blue, red and a variety of other colors. The secret is to know how to use them and how to combine them in order to create the desired effect.

Dark interior decors tend to be dramatic. It’s because of the colors sued but also because these shades don’t look good when used with any style. Something sophisticated or something theatrical can be emphasized by colors and turned into a real work of art. Antique pieces and opulent little details also make great additions to dark interiors.
