Moody and sophisticated, black is an excellent choice for the bedroom. While most people shy away from using it at home, labeling it too risky a design move, giving this color (or lack thereof) a chance can really pay off. When done well, ebony-colored bedrooms can feel extra cozy and chic, and not at all closed in. While you search for black bedroom ideas to use in your home, allow the following tips and photos to guide you.
1. Rich Dark Walls
The idea of painting your walls black may terrify you, but the right tone can really set the mood for reading in bed and comfortably dozing off. Choose a lighter paint that edges towards gray or navy blue.
2. A Dazzling Bedroom Set
If inky-hued walls aren’t for you, incorporate black with your bedroom furniture. A matching black bedroom set, with a bed frame, nightstands and a dresser, can look stunning. Go for a posh Victorian look, or choose lacquered, contemporary pieces.
3. Let the Light In
Keep your bedroom feeling light and airy with cream-colored curtains. Whether you go with Roman shades or long and elegant drapes, they’ll give your bedroom a chic black and white color scheme.
4. Black and Gold
Every black bedroom needs an accent color here and there, and gold will add a welcome touch of luxury and glamour. Sprinkle your walls with ornate gold picture frames, or find a gorgeous brassy bed frame.
5. Black Wallpaper
If you’re searching for black bedroom decor ideas, look no further than black patterned wallpaper that’ll truly pop. Grasscloth looks clean and understated, while a black and white French toile will really make a statement.
6. A Plush Rug
Soften the feel of your bedroom with a plush white rug. Luxurious flokati or shag rugs work particularly well to cut through otherwise dark rooms.
