Dark walls help create focal points, contrast, glamour — even a cozy feel
Even though I use a lot of black accents in my bedroom, the absolute last wall color I had ever considered was black. But that’s why I love Houzz. I can take an idea I’m wary of, hit my search button, and the photos can make me do a complete 180. These bedrooms, all with at least one black wall, vary greatly in size and style, but the common denominator is that the black walls are key to the designs’ success. If you can’t imagine liking black in your bedroom, take a look at these 10 ideas and see if they change your mind.
1. Create a dramatic backdrop for art. This clever plaster and acrylic art by Peter Buchman is the focal point of the room, drawing the eye up over the low bed. It pops thanks to the black wall behind it and the exposed white brick that complements it.
2. Play with the light. We’ve talked of the amazing bright light in Australia in our other black-themed ideabooks, and this Sydney bedroom shows it well. The dark paneled wall puts the focus on the glass wall, and the sunlight reflects off it beautifully. When you take a second look at this photo, check out how the shadows on the lighter surfaces compare with the bright light reflecting off the dark wall.
