Dark Wallpapers for Bright Inspiration

February 10th, 2011

Desktop wallpapers are one of those things that inspire all of us once in a while. Therefore, we tend to have developed the habit of changing our desktop wallpapers according to our moods and surroundings. In this post we’ve collected some nice dark wallpapers to show you that black does not always have to represent gloominess but it can also serve to be a color of luminous elegance and style.
