Bold Black Interiors

Today I want to talk about black. It can be the most dramatic, sensual and transformative colour, and really adds glamour to a room.

But it’s so dark I hear you cry – what about the room being dark, what abbout the room feeling small. Well actually I’ve found (though a fair bit of trial and error!) that adding a dramitic and bold statement like a black wall – (or even four black walls!) will actually give your room definition and make it feel bigger (yes really!)

My love of decorating with black started tentatively with just one wall in our last apartment, and has grown into a nook in the bedroom, and the entire bathroom (even the bath – black enameled in Germany), and a whole kitchen wall of black splashback in our current place.

My first attempt at decorating with black in our last flat:

We’re moving again soon, and I’m already thinking black will cover large swathes of the walls, ceilings, floors – okay, I’ve gone black crazy, especially since I stumbles across the inspirational images images below. If you’re a little bit worried about going black, or want a quick, cheapp and easy way to add glamour to a fairly plain room, why not    just paint the ceiling out?

See how it totally transforms the room:



Hoorah for black!
