Jet black is the go-to colour for adding sophistication to a space. Black is all about impact. Striking and immersive, it makes a strong statement which is why it is so popular with designers. Black can lift a lacklustre scheme, and add drama.
Use black as an accent to add emphasis or to add a smart detail.
Black can also be used to create a decadent interior. It makes an unassuming room look glamorous or a room with large proportions can be turned into a more contained and intimate space
What we like most about black is how other colours really pop and stand out against it. Whether you theme it with warm neutral furnishings or bright jewel tones, black will make it really stand out.
Black remains a firm favourite in some of the most fashionable homes – maybe it’s time for you to look at the dark side.
In black spaces texture is very important – add glossy metallics to make this colour come alive. You need to add plenty of artificial light sources to a black scheme, from wall sconces to table lamps to create pools of interest around the room.
