I have just been mesmerized with this above photo. The black wall is so striking and gorgeous! I have seen walls and rooms painted black for about a year now but it never interested me until lately. I gathered together a few stunning photos of black painted walls/rooms to see if you might also be inspired to use a moody black:
Instant drama to your space!
I love how this powder room came out so gorgeous in black:
The paint color is Ben Moore Twilight Zone 2127-10. I love the black and gold mix!
Beautiful entryway painted in Glidden’s Onyx Black:
Again- loving the black and gold together. So chic!
Black is not being kept in one room, I see it in bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms. dining rooms and offices:
What do you think of a black living room?:
These black bedrooms are fabulous!!:
If you are looking for a great color to work with your stained trim:
Love, love, love!
When using black in your home for the walls, I would use an eggshell finish. Unless you really want drama like this in a semi-gloss:
A hallway is a perfect place for high drama!

Did you notice what a great backdrop black is for art?
Do you love these dark rooms but nervous going for such an intense color? First start with a simple accent wall painted black. It’s the most affordable and low-commitment ways to bring a splash of black into a room. I would pair it with plenty of white to keep it from feeling heavy and also bring in bits of other fun colors, such as bold raspberry or orange — the palette is both fun and modern but also grown-up and sophisticated. Accessorize as if the walls were painted white! Or if you want to start small, bring in black through accessories such as areas rugs or accent chairs.
Hope I have inspired you to consider using black in a room of your home. I told you the photos were stunning! What do you think?
