Living rooms in black are feared by most, loved by others and received with iffyness by some. Black can be too harsh a color and that is the reason one in 1000 people will never consider painting any wall black. Also black sucks in light so rooms with black tend to give off a moody, mysterious and somewhat seductive vibe. The interwebs do not fail when it comes to inspiration on how to get that black inspired living room.
Black, White & Red
This living room breaks the black walls with contemporary ash grey couch and satin red curtains. The animal print rug adds drama to the space.
Black Feature Wall
This room benefits from large windows as well as skylights. A black feature wall amid white walls and high ceilings adds visual interest to the space.
Black & Yellow
We are really hearting this black and yellow living room. The white mantle, yellow Victorian couch and mid century accents give these black walls an airy feel.
A Splash Of Gold
The splash of gold wall paper in this room is breathes life into the mysterious black and grey theme.
A Strip Of Black
Do you feel intimidated going all black? You could try a strip of black on a section of your wall. Also our totally gorgeous IKEA rug shows up in this space.
Black With Neutrals
If I went black, I would go like this. The black furniture and curtains complement the graystone walls in this room.
If you are going to go all black, layer different intensities of black. Also pair metallic blacks with matte wall colors and different textures of fabric. This black room looks like a man cave of sorts or a room where mysterious deals are struck.
The key is in balance, this room balances the white wainscotting with a black top half paint on the walls and a white sectional rug. The huge windows bring in light and the pillows in pink and chevron make the space pretty and playful.
