Welcome to the Darkside: Black Walls

It's staying light out later, so why not embrace your dark side and try cloaking a room of your home in black. From mid-century modern to traditional romanticism, there really isn't a style that black walls don't work with. White trim helps bring light in despite the dramatic hue, and pops of color in seating, pillows and rugs allow life to shine through. If a masculine or hipster vibe is more of what you're looking for, keep colors in the room other than black or white to a minimum and add interest through quirky art and accessories.

  7. I know it's been said that dark walls make the space look smaller but I have ALWAYS been a huuuge fan of having dark walls with white accents like the rooms above! Whether it's the crown molding, the doors, fireplace, whatever - loove the contrast!!

  8. i've always really enjoyed dark walls. i think they add such a unique touch to a room, especially if there is a lot of natural light coming in.

  9. Ooh, I really love this idea. So often everything white on the walls is thought to be the best, but the white trims on the dark walls is so alluring.

    I love all of these ideas! Black or white, they're both great blank canvases.

  15. I really love dark walls, so moody and yet somehow still fresh. I don't think I could commit to painting a wall in my {future} home black, but I know I want a black front door! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you back ;)
