As more and more people are turning to dark interiors for inspiration Black is becoming a popular choice whem accessorising a room. Whether its small accessories like vases and ornaments, tables and chairs or wall coverings and paint, black is the shade of choice.
Mix high gloss with matte finishes to create tone and collect a selection of black items to display in one space.
The kitchen is a great place to introduce black as there are so many surfaces to play with as well as including electricals, tableware and cutlery. Of course mix with white for a more monochrome feel or combine with dark wood, copper or brass additions.
If you are daring enough, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t be go full on black throughout a room. This especially works well in a bedroom, where most of the time you spend in there is in the dark anyway. Going dark creates a cosy space and doesn’t always – as a lot of people expect -make a room feel smaller.

Bringing together a lot of dark tones (greys and blacks) is a bold move but it pays off. Although high lighting with colour or white is also a great look. Intersperse dark cabinets with white tiling or use a paler paint or flooring to soften the darkness.
