STRIKING ROOMS WITH BLACK WALLS
Hi there! I’m Jenn and I write for Arcadian Home Decor, which is an e-commerce website that specializes in top home decor ideas around the world. I have always been a fan of antiques, daybeds, lace, and chandeliers, and I’ve been writing about interior design for more than a decade. My mornings begin with a big cup of coffee in my yellow mug and searching the net for inspiring websites, like Leffstyle.com, where the posts offer a wide range of stylish ideas. Thanks to Cindy for letting me guest post here today!
Black is a color that most people shy away from when it comes to painting a wall however its deep dramatic hue also make it the most striking choice. When used in a “smart” way in home decorating it can create visual impact and really pack a stylish punch. Here are eight striking rooms with black walls to fall in love with.
Black on black
It may be surprising to put a black dresser in front of a black wall but the look is seamless. The colourful seashell wall art helps break up the starkness.
A lighter shade of black
This greyish-black isn’t overwhelming because of the white ceiling and pop of hot pink. The light fixtures also keep this living room from feeling too dark.
A dining room is a striking room with black walls – it looks refined when paired with opulent crystal table decor as well as gold detailing.
A black accent
Black is less daunting when it’s applied to a simple accent wall – here, the black backdrop provides the perfect amount of drama behind a black and white fabric headboard.
Blacks with antiques
This striking room with black walls looks more intimate and cozy with the dark shade – antique furniture and a fireplace provide the perfect details.
Back to black
The back of this long galley kitchen features a black wall flanked by colorful red, orange, and yellow glass bottles for an interesting juxtaposition between monochromatic and the playful.
Black is exotic
An eclectic living room filled with unique artifacts and conversation pieces which are brought to the forefront in this striking room with black walls.
Dressed in black
Another galley-style kitchen, this one really optimizes the dramatic qualities of black by using it on the walls, backsplash, and countertops.
Thanks Jenn– I too, love to create drama in a room with dark walls and I love the contrast of black and white in a room on walls, fabrics and furniture…
Hope you all enjoyed Jenn’s post.
