No need to be afraid of the dark. When done right, colors close to black such as dark gray can be comforting and enveloping areas that feel like safe spaces to escape to—less energizing and more rejuvenating.

Strike the right balance and it’s possible to pull off colors as dark as Obsidian. Have contrast in the room in the way of lighter colors like Clear Quartz—equally as moody but definitely brighter. Textures will make the space cozy as well, Think bath mats and towels. And lots of sunlight streaming in will keep the room from getting suffocating. If you can, add greenery too.

Green is a soothing color and, in the emerald green shade of Sage’s Remedy, it’s also a sophisticated one. Rich and indulgent, it makes a bold statement especially when paired with the equally dramatic dark magenta of Love Potion.

When decorating, you can lean more towards a jewel theme with metallic accents. Wooden finishing will also make the space more inviting. If the room feels like it’s getting too overwhelming, adding in white will turn down the intensity that the colors will bring to the room!

Time for arguably the most dramatic of the colors in the Alchemy palette, Mage’s Cloak. Purple is associated with magic, mystery, spirituality, and creativity. It’s also considered a royal color and one of extravagance. Purple dye—and, therefore, purple garments—used to be very costly and rare.

What better hue to go with a purple than a golden yellow? Yellow also exudes opulence. What’s more, the two are complementary colors which means they definitely go well together. Solar Essence will make Mage’s Cloak even more beautiful! Add in just a sprinkling as you don’t need a lot to make an impact.
