Home Decor 101: Decorating with Black

17th December 2021

Gone are the days when people used to think that black is a dark and depressing color. People are now aware that black is stylish and provides a ‘grounding’ effect that is essential for every interior. Black enhances any color and shape and brings out the best in any design and style.

If you want to add a luxurious feel to your space without spending a lot, adding black accents is the key to achieving it.

Here are some tips on how to use black to make your home look expensive.

Black Furniture

A little bit of black in every room is enough. A black bedside or coffee table, black picture frames, black-themed painting, or even as simple as a black pillow can do the trick. Also, keep in mind that repetition is always a good idea in creating little touches across a room to achieve a unified look.

White Room with Black Accent

White is timeless, and when used against black, the space will definitely have a glamorous lift. Adding a touch of black, for example; on your white door using a black door handle will impact the overall feel of your room. What’s good about this is it doesn’t take the limelight from your white theme, but it rather improves its aesthetics.
