Solid and modern, black has a long relationship with mystery, dark secrets, and the unexplored world.
Black stimulates profound feelings of class and royalty. But when used in the wrong proportion anywhere, quite the contrary.
That doesn’t mean we can’t use black at our favorite places. At least the accents, if not complete.
We can praise black some other day but for now, let’s look at how you can throw a black accent wall in the bedroom so (at least) your favorite place in the house houses your favorite color!
Scroll down, and you won’t want to take your eyes off the dark accents and their brilliance that will knock straight at your heart. (I bet!)
Try Bold And Beautiful Wall Panels
For black accent walls in the bedroom, textured black wall panels work wonderfully. Especially when that has to act as the focal point of your bedroom.
Since the color adds warmth and depth to the bedroom, consider balancing the darkness with light-colored bedding and light wood furnishings.
For a boho bedroom with a black accent wall, throw some lovely boho embellishments into the space.
Try quirky and unique patterns, and use boho pendant lights, pampas grass, cozy textured throws, and earthy colors.
Fill the room with natural materials like wood and plants, and let the black accent wall stand as prominent as the other things in the bohemian-style room!
Play Around With Modernity
A black and white bedroom with plain fabrics and sleek designs is all there is to elegance and modernity!
Consider punctuating black on not only the accent wall but also the bed frame and the window frames.
Then throw in light neutral shades like beige or white to balance any darkness black might have brought along!
Pair It With Dusty Colors
You can twist your imagination in various directions while you decorate your bedroom with a black highlight wall. One way is a dusty, kinda rustic look!
Add wooden elements and earthy tones against black, so your bedroom gets a shabby, rustic vibe! Even adding a few macrame decorations and shades of brown can help!
Consider A Black Shiplap Wall
Since black requires little detail to make itself prettier, black paneled walls are great for a quick bedroom makeover.
Like the image above, you could try throwing some brown accents in the bedroom to add variety to the color scheme.
And so far as the designs and textures are concerned, it is up to your creativity how you wish to play with these pretty lines.
Decorate The Wall
It’s usually ideal to choose a windowless and doorless wall in the bedroom as an accent wall. But with a dark and deep color like black, it’s okay to overlook the rule!
Instead, decorate the black accent wall in the bedroom with pretty wall art and light shade curtains. That won’t let the dark color overpower your space or make it look bland!
Add A Black Ceiling!
It’s no rule that you ought to choose one of the four walls as a black accent wall in the bedroom. Look up, you have a ceiling that’s just as deserving as the walls!
Paint the ceiling a matte black and to add some extra fashion and a futuristic flair to the bedroom, a floating bed with some glowy splendid lights is fun and contemporary!
The Gothic Aristocratic Style!
The rich black feature wall with some gothic undertones is a great idea if you wish to go with the goth aesthetic for your bedroom with a black accent wall.
The pretty jewel chandeliers give the actual 12th-century Gothic vibe to the space. And, when paired with a low bed, you get the minimalist and spacious feel that’s only so integral when using black as the major color in the bedroom!
Add Pastel Colors
With black as a bold accent color on the wall, it is safe to use almost any other color in your space and not worry about the color palette going wrong! Black marries everything well!
For the space to look more kawaii and subtle, consider going for a light, pastel color palette like the above gray and mustard in the bedroom. Or why limit yourself? Choose whichever color you love. You aren’t gonna go wrong anyway!
How About The Cowboy Vibe?
A similarly designed black accent wall in the bedroom is ideal for you if you have a rancher soul.
Besides the black feature wall, it’s a great idea to add a few other accent pieces like the cow-print throw rug and an artificial cow head on the headboard wall. They make your bedroom even more appealing and different!
And if you like a dog in there, add one (lol!)
Splash Some Colors
Colors against whites and blacks work wonderfully! They pop out at their fullest!
With your black accent wall too, add some prints and colors across the space to stray away a bit from the modern vibe towards the kido within that needs some nurturing after long!
Add Some Texture
A black-and-white room, as elegant as it looks, might create plainness.
It’s thus integral that you consider adding a few textures in the neutral-toned space, say rough bedding, a chenille throw, some boho pillows, or textured wall art! They won’t let your room look boring and create depth.
Add Some Warm Lighting
When you are up to creating a cozy winter bedroom, (or otherwise) warm lighting against a black accent wall can do wonders!
Add golden bedside lamps or use light fixtures to make the golden flair add peace and warmth to the space.
Throw some mustard in the dark bedroom so the golden light finds home!
Try The Black And Beige Combination
Sometimes, a full black-and-white room might look like too extreme a combination. Yet, the black color in the room needs to be balanced,
For that, adding beige color to the room is an ideal option! It doesn’t add a stark contrast to the setting nor makes it too dull.
Also, consider allowing a lot of natural light into the space so it doesn’t feel too suffocated.
Any color and space can become 100x better with plants! And that’s exactly the hack to make your black accent wall in the bedroom, way better that the usual designs!
Add floating wall shelves and decorate them with plants. Get pretty planters and hang plants. Or keep a few indoor plants here and there across your bedroom. Make it biophilic.
Then add a few textures and prints across the space and done!
When There’s Black And Pink, Don’t Think!
Black gives pink a delicate blush feel when contrasted together.
The idea here is to add black as an insignificant backdrop so pink or your favorite color radiates brilliantly without anything sharing the glow.
And to not make the black look too dull or plain, consider using modern and textured black wall panels.
Dive Into The Dark
It’s amazing how dark against dark can create a mysterious and dark-academia feel to a space almost effortlessly!
Add a lot of patterns and textures to this space, along with beautiful natural colors like green and brown to not make it feel like you’re living in a den in the 21st century!
Don’t forget the lights. Or else…
As Sophisticated As Black Is!
We all often associate black with sophistication and modernity. That’s exactly the air that a black accent wall in the bedroom can create!
Consider adding sleek geometric patterned black wall panels in the bedroom. Add nice, plain bedding, furniture, and colors. Give a finishing touch with a bedside golden lamp and nightstand. Nothing more to sophistication.
Some tips to consider before adding a black accent wall
• Let the Sunlight In– Allow a great deal of daylight to come in. At the point when you pick a room and envision it to be dark, ensure it has more than adequate natural light to fall in the room as it doesn’t let the room look too small nor interfere with the look of the decor.
• Create Contrast– It is no compulsion that when you pick a color for your space, there can be just two tones. Try a third. But when choosing a color palette, it is best to create contrast with light and bright colors against black. They don’t let the dark tone dominate the space and create balance.
• Don’t Consider A Dark Ceiling- The ceiling reflects the light in the room, the most. Having a dark ceiling might affect the brightness of a space. If there is not enough light in the room, you’ll feel contracting and boxy- not cozy. So it’s best to resist a black ceiling!
• Wall Art– With a dark accent wall, metallic wall decor, or bright wall art is best! Or in case your bedroom decor looks too plain, try textured wall decor like that of macrame.
• Add Greenery- It’s a green flag to go for greenery. When using bold colors like black in the bedroom, they lack excitement. Plants are important to bring your dim bedroom with a black accent wall to life.
Until next time, happy decorating!
