These stunning examples of black accent walls in bedrooms show how color can be both glamorous and cozy – the perfect modern farmhouse boho blend!
Our Master Bedroom is about to get a makeover.
We’ve been dreaming and scheming and plotting and planning. As with any room makeover, I begin by collecting inspiration and ideas.
Surprisingly, I’ve found myself drawn to bedrooms with black accent walls. Are you skeptical?
These inspiration pictures just might change your mind!
Observations about Bedrooms with Black Walls
As I look through inspiration pictures when planning a room makeover, I like to dig deep and analyze the reasons why I like a certain overall look and feeling. In order for a black wall in a bedroom to feel like home to me, I think it also needs to be paired with the following features:
1. Lots of natural light.
The inspiration pictures I’ve been drawn to all seem to have something in common – a big window with lots of natural light.
Although our bedroom isn’t big, it does have a great window and the best natural light in the house!
2. A large portion of white to balance out the black.
Notice how all the inspiration pictures above have all white walls other than the feature wall? I think that’s why I like them. I tend to be drawn to light and bright spaces, and although the black definitely brings drama, the overall space is still light.
3. White bedding
Along with the white walls, all of the inspiration bedrooms have white bedding. It pops against the dark wall and looks fresh and inviting.
Also, paired with white bedding is often throw blankets and accent pillows in different textured fabric and designs – preventing the overall look from becoming stark and sterile.
4. Wall lamps
I just love the interest that wall lamps above the bed make – and I’m especially drawn to the gold metalic look of some of them.
5. Wood tones
Along with black + white, there is also a lovely mix of wood tones in the space. I think this adds greatly to the cozy factor and makes it feel more relaxed and Modern Farmhouse – not just modern.
The icing on the cake of these inspiration rooms is the beautiful greenery used for accents. It brings life to the spaces and adds more interest and color.
So, there you have it. Have I convinced you? Would you ever consider a black accent wall in a room?
Believe it or not, we’ve done it before!
I’m looking forward to testing out a few colors and see what we end up with in our Master Bedroom space.
