When it comes to using black colour in your home interior, many may fear the hue will be too dark and gloomy. But sometimes, interior design can be as simple as black and white.
Black will always add elegance, refinement and style to a room. It works great as an accent colour to create some contract. When used in combination with other colours, it can also give a bold and dramatic look to any room.
It is important, however, to get the right balance. If too much black is used, then it can get too heavy, dark or even make the space look small. So if you are looking to create a ‘wow’ factor in your home, here are some ideas to get you started.
Black and White – a timeless combination
This classic combination makes any room sophisticated, timeless and chic. The best way to make this pair work together is to use them equally on a large scale.
Black and brown – sleek and modern blend
When using black and brown together, you may run into an issue with your room feeling too dark. To help balance it out, incorporate elements with a light neutral shade into your décor.
Black and yellow – a contemporary match
This dynamic duo is both bold and full of energy. Mixing black with bright yellow details will give your room a modern, fresh look, and add a vibrant feel to your décor.
Black and green – a versatile natural fusion
The combination of green hues with a black décor can help enliven the space and give a more sophisticated look to your room. Whether you use one as a colour base and the other as an accent, the green shade will add a natural look to any interior.
