We are back from Italy and having experienced such an unforgettable week in Milano, we are far away from the casual daily routine! We have scheduled some topics for after the Salone del Mobile and one of them was the ever glamorous theme on moody interiors. Now it seems only fair, that we show you some of the spotted moody interpreted interiors from the Salone, as well as some, that we have spotted before.
All of the dark approaches we have seen do have a slight hint of color – may it be pink, like at Dimore Studio or blue at Diesel Living. But note, that all of these colors are mixed with a large percentage of black so they are highly muted and communicate sophistication and uncompromising excellence.

To some dark shades are menacing and probably also the reason why it took quite a long time to fully conquer the interiors world with all dark interiors. Even before the Salone, and now with an even more distinct overview, it seems that dark interiors are not going anywhere!
From a psychological point of view, black and dark shades create a protective barrier, and this can also be read as a beautiful metaphor for protecting our personal spaces. Dark shades are also connected to emotional safety – in challenging times like ours maybe one of the reasons for the popularity for moody interiors, driven by the impulse for more substance.
In a recent Interview with the German Architectural Digest the talented masterminds behind Dimore Studio described their moody interiors as ‚warm, fulfilled & welcoming’ – a fitting description, that can also be translated to all moody interiors! We can only agree on the positive effect moody interiors have on so many.
