Black is one of my favorite colors to use in home decor, but I recently stumbled upon rooms with all black walls. It sounds so dark, right? I would have thought so too, but there’s something so elegant and classy about a black room. It can be classy, elegant, sophisticated, deep, bold, rich, etc. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I stumbled upon so many black rooms on Pinterest. They are just so, so beautiful to me. Sure, not every room needs to be black, and not every room can handle such richness, but sometimes it just works, and when it works, oh my! So elegant! I just love these black rooms and for so many different reasons!
As much as I love the black rooms, I don’t think our current home can handle much black. There’s really not a lot of natural light. Well, there is, but I don’t think it would be enough, and some of our rooms are a bit small, so doing black would definitely enclose them more. However, a black room is definitely on my dream home list.
If you do it right, it looks amazing! If you aren’t sure about a black room, just try one wall. It might really surprise you how much it changes the look of the room. I’m thinking of changing our teal wall in our living room to black.
As you can see, we have some white floating shelves on the wall with lots of white, silver and gold accents, all of which I know will also look great against the black. I’m really, really thinking I might try it out very soon. I’ll be sure to post a picture when it’s complete. 🙂
