Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. I went looking for black and white bedrooms, and found a lot of gorgeous rooms showcasing a black painted wall. It’s hard to have a room entirely black and white without it looking like a zebra, but with just a painted backdrop you can transform your room in to a stunning and dramatic showstopper.

Black has been a feature in interior design for years and years…. couches, desks, accessories. Paint is such an easy way to incorporate black in to your home. It’s inexpensive and doesn’t take long to change it back if you’re not happy with the results.

Although it’s dark, black can be the perfect backdrop in the bedroom and can really define the space you’re in. Teamed with the right accessories, your bedroom can ooze style and sophistication without looking too harsh.

TIPS:

  • If you have really high ceilings, paint only up to eye level and finish the top of the wall with a grey.
  • Pick natural accessories or a timber bedhead to bring in that earthy feel. It will soften the harshness of plain black and white.
  • Little bits of greenery will always work with a black wall. An indoor plant or garden clippings will be pleasing to the eye.
  • You won’t need artwork with a black wall. Let it be the feature.
  • Light coloured linen will work best. Add texture to it though, like a throw or simple pattern in the cushions.
  • A black wall does tend to work better in a well lit room. If it’s already a dark room then it may not have the same dramatic feel. It’ll just be darker and difficult to style.
  • Think about the opposite walls around the room. While white is ok and safe, why not really add to the feel of the room and paint those a nice light grey? The black will then look like it’s meant to be there!
  • Use black in your nursery? I know! I looked around on Pinterest and there are heaps of gorgeous baby rooms with black walls. They are stunning.
