You don’t have to be afraid of going dark with your decor and interior design. The spaces in these photos are sophisticated, seductive, and sure to make a dramatic statement in any season. Black walls don’t mean sacrificing color elsewhere. Like the little black dress, the big black wall will compliment just about any accessory, and can handle a fair amount of other colors in the same room. Dark walls can help tie together pieces from different eras, giving the whole room a look that’s cohesive and up-to-date. Using black paint on your room’s walls is recommended when you have contrasting furniture or various decorating elements so you would balance the room vibe. Maybe you will be surprised, but black can actually open up a space. When you walk into that room in the daytime, your eye goes straight outside. Black stretches the perimeter. With black walls and a black carpet, everything floats and the room seems boundless. Dark, dramatic, and positively bewitching, black painted rooms always make a striking statement. They may seem like a bold makeover move but when done right, the results can be dazzling. Take a look at the following photos which are mysterious, soothing, and undeniably stylish.
