Why dark walls could change your home for the better, according to interior design experts

  • White and neutral-colored walls have been trendy in homes in recent years.
  • But dark colors might be a better choice for your space, according to Ben and Erin Napier of HGTV‘s “Home Town.”
  • “It creates contrast,” Erin told Insider of why dark paint works in home spaces.
  • The latest season of “Home Town” premiered on HGTV on Sunday, and new episodes will be airing each week.

Home decor trends go in and out of style every few years, though some have more staying power than others.

In recent years, neutral color palettes have dominated interior design trends, particularly when it comes to painting. People have been opting for white and other light colors on their walls, aiming to create a clean look.

However, darker paint colors are becoming popular again, and Ben and Erin Napier, the hosts of HGTV’s “Home Town,” told Insider they’re excited that people are opting for richer shades.
“People are less afraid of dark rooms now,” Erin told Insider. “I think it’s exciting to see more of a return to color on the wall – dark, saturated, moody color.”
