Heads up, today we are talking about how to decorate your room with black. ‘Cause it is such an interesting colour. It creates such a really special space. It is dramatic, sexy and elegant. It is always so cool to be able to decorate your space even if you don’t want to commit to a full black dark moody room. You could at least sort of play a little bit with some black accents. In this blog, I’m going to give you some of my tips on how you can decorate with black in your own home.
Paint Your Walls with Black
Sometimes people are really scared to use black on the walls which I totally understand but honestly you shouldn’t be all that scared. I know we might be sort of afraid that it’s going to draw in a space and make it feel really small. Sometimes you want a space to feel really cosy. You might want a space to feel little bit more cave like but in a good way. If so, black is really great at doing that because it draws the walls in a little bit and makes it feel really cosy. Another reason I love black in a room is that black is really good at providing contrast. This way, you can create a gorgeous focal point. So, for example, if you happen to paint your walls in black and put a white, creamy or beige rug in your space, you will effortlessly be able to create a focal point, which will feel a lot more interesting for your room.
Match Your Blacks
What you also can do is to coordinate black colour in your space. So if you see our blog on ‘’How to Make Your Place Feel More Cohesive’’ you’ll know that rhythm and repetition in your space is really important at being able to guide your eye around the room. You can mix blacks. So, examples of that would be if you have black patterned cushions, you can mix and match them with a black patterned rug. You’ve got the lighting fixtures in a living room for another example. Even for your bathroom, you could choose a matte black faucet, towel holder, door handle and again you can match them with black rug. All these different elements together make a place feel a lot more cohesive.
Use Black Accents
Next tip for you is to consider adding black but through different textures that you wouldn’t otherwise expect. Because I know some people can be extremely nervous of using the black all around the room. So, these tips might be really helpful for you if you are also one of them. So, I think you can bring black in a lot more of a textual way. Because sometimes, black like white can sometimes feel a little flat and a little bit sort of one dimensional. Once you add on different textures, you’re starting to create a lot more aspects. Summary of this bit would be, you don’t necessarily need to use the black as the main colour. However, you can bring the black scattered in small pieces on different options. This means you can get a black & white coloured rug again: or instead of painting your wall completely in black, you can add black accents or moulding on it. Thus, it just makes it look a lot more dynamic and a lot more interesting again. But don’t limit yourself with cushions, curtains or paints only. You can even get black electronical devices which will look complementary. At the end of the day, you will have created a very cohesive look in your space.
