Decorating Black Rooms With Brightly Colored Accents



While white walls and bright accents have been on the list of recent trends, a recent poll reported that 74 percent of homeowners enjoy black rooms. That means black walls are in. Just like fashion's Little Black Dress, a room with black walls is undeniably chic in 2014. This post is dedicated to black walls with brightly colored accents.

Black walls read as neutrals and look great paired with whites, yellows, reds, bright blues, corals, and the list goes on and on. Dark walls give colors an extra oomph and will put your brightly colored art, accessories, and furniture in the spotlight.



Even though it is trendy now, bright colors set against black walls has always been a trusted weapon in a designers arsenal. Designer Albert Hadley used it in this 1962 Park Avenue Duplex

In 2014 we'll be seeing rooms with a lot more drama and glamour. Dark, moody walls in black will be the perfect backdrop for colorful accents and are now being used to make a statement.

This small black bathroom doesn't feel so confined when you factor in the bright colors of the wallpaper.

Bright colors are beautiful on black walls as seen in this picture. The art may not be your style but just look at how beautifully these bright colors stand out against the black.


Books can provide color to a black wall. You will see this in a number of the images below.


I love the way they have introduced bright colors to this black interior in the colorful paisley print on the sofas. They accessorized with the same colors to tie it all together.

Living with bold colors like red, bright blues, or citrusy yellows can be difficult. They are intense, saturated colors and their effect can be overwhelming. Black walls can temper your bright, bold colors.

  1. Black does make a room much classier and more elegant. Paired with the right furniture, it can make a space look sophisticated. I think it has something to do with how black allows other colors and objects to come to the forefront and stand out.
