DESIGN TREND: BLACK WALLS

August 29, 2014

I keep seeing more and more black painted rooms these days and I just can't get enough of them.  A black room can be finished many different ways.  The possibilities are endless. But why paint a room black in the first place?  I think Elle Decor put it best when it stated, "We wear it when we want to look polished—so why not use black to give a room its own dressed-up chic?"

 

My advice to anyone considering decorating with black walls is to go bold or go home.  I recently convinced a client to go with black for the walls in her home office/ guest bedroom.  Even though she liked my inspiration photos, she was weary of painting the room such a dark color.  I couldn't blame her.  The idea scared me a little too.  We considered dialing it down and using a dark grey instead of black.  At the end of the day, I knew the gray wouldn't have the contrast and boldness we were looking for and we settled on a deep black Benjamin Moore paint color.  The result was fabulous!!  My client says that this is her favorite room in her home and I couldn't be happier to hear that.  You can see that room in my portfolio but I want to share some other fab black painted rooms:

 

 

Perfection. Period:

 

 

Here's a new black nursery.  I love the simplicity of this one.

 

 

What a sweet powder room:

 

 

I'm on a black with brown leather kick right now.  

 

 

What a fun room!
