Kraft paints Χειμωνιάτικο Cocooning με Black Velvet

As we head into midwinter, our daily lives will increasingly revolve around our homes, and we will seek refuge and relaxation in our cozy little sanctuary. The renewal of our interiors this season, therefore, could not ignore our need for a warmer and cozier atmosphere. At the same time, we have no intention of betraying our love for style. For 2023, a big trend will be darker and more expressive colors, such as dark grays, and we are embracing them without hesitation. The dark gray (charcoal) KR2678 Black Velvet from the Inspired Collection, is a color that is becoming more and more popular year after year - and rightfully so. It is a wall color that was almost prohibitive a few years ago, but now every self-respecting interior designer finds a way to incorporate it. KR2678 Black Velvet adds balance, tranquility, and instant sophistication to any room, and has the ability to be elevated when complemented with bold colors in furniture and accessories, always creating an inviting, cozy atmosphere in a space.

Don't be afraid of "color drenching"

Especially in large rooms, dare to embrace the ultimate trend of 'color drenching' for an ultra-modern look. More specifically, use KR2678 Black Velvet everywhere - on skirting boards, door and window frames, radiators, etc. Also, don't hesitate to incorporate fabrics and rugs in a similar shade. 'Color drenching' with this color creates a great cocooning atmosphere in the living room. Alternatively, you can create a striking effect by applying a monochromatic color scheme, combining different tones from the same color family, such as white, light gray (KR2675 Brushed Steel), beige (KR2679 Sound of Silence), and black (KR2713 Jet Black).

All styles, all spaces

KR2678 Black Velvet is a very distinctive color that steals the show, but at the same time, it has the ability to transform depending on the colors and styles it is called upon to showcase. It fits equally well into classic and modern styles, such as industrial, minimal - even Scandinavian. It makes the space look special and unique, while thoughtful combinations with other decorative elements create a modern, elegant, and authentic look. It is the ideal timeless backdrop for a decor with colorful furniture, artworks, and accessories in a color scheme that can be easily updated with different accent colors.

In the dining room and bathroom, it creates a serene atmosphere, adding depth to the space and highlighting modern details. In a built-in furniture piece like a bookcase, it creates a beautiful contrast with white walls, perfectly complementing any decorating style.

Embrace it!

KR2678 Black Velvet is perfect for those who love sophisticated style, and of course, like black and white, it is a neutral color that goes well with almost all other colors. It serves as a great backdrop for bold colors such as blue, yellow, or green, and beautifully accentuates the so-called colors of royalty - purple and gold. It also blends seamlessly with all natural wood tones.
