design obsession: dark walls

of course i would develop this design obsession just after i've painted my entire apartment a light and creamy, dreamy gray.HOWEVER, i am LOVING the emergence of dark, dark walls! i'm not talking chocolate brown either, because we've seen that forever. it's nice and all, but i'm talking black or navy. it lends a sense of weightiness and formality to the most hodge-podge of homes. against dark walls, everything looks intentional, grown up and...sophisticated! here are a few examples for your viewing pleasure!
...happy sophisticating...

sophisticated...even in the kitchen!
such fun with chalkboard paint.

in white, the furniture in this room could be lost and too ethereal.
but with deep navy walls? sophisticated.
