Decorating With Black: 13 Ways To Use Dark Colors In Your Home

Let’s be honest: black has gotten a bad rap lately. White is everywhere, and black has been kicked to the curb a little bit: relegated to being boring, gloomy, blah blah blah. And you know, that’s just not fair to our dear dark-shaded friends: black (and it’s other dark color pals like charcoal and navy) can have so much impact in small or large doses, without making the room feel dreary or dull (although it does make for a great moody space :) ). As much as we love white for kitchens and walls, there are just too many lovely rooms out there that use black so beautifully to let us stand back and see black maligned and ignored. So, here are 13 ways to consider using black in your home to add some drama and elegance to any room. I know, the title says reasons… but all these photos should be reason enough, ha!

Give black a chance! 13 beautiful reasons that you should consider decorating with black -- even and especially when you love bright and airy white!

Paint It Black: Using Dark Colors to Add Drama to a Space

One key thing to remember about decorating with black is that it’s surprisingly similar to decorating in white. Like Sarah discussed here,  when you’re decorating in a neutral (or monochrome) shade, you have to give some visual variety by including different hues and especially different textures. Wood and metals, like copper, match really nicely in a modern scheme with black, and use some brighter or whiter tones, too, unless you are going for a moody feel.
