Styling Your Bedroom With Black
Black tones in your bedroom seem intimidating at first — but may be perfect for a good night’s sleep. Black mimics the colour of night and darkness and, if styled correctly, will transform your bedroom into a calming oasis every night. Especially if the rest of your home features the popular neutral palette, a dark bedroom will be a welcome reprieve. Now, let's talk about a few simple ways to incorporate black into your bedroom.
1. Black + White
A classic never-go-wrong monochrome look will always succeed. Make the colour scheme of your entire bedroom only black & white, and watch what a strong styling statement this makes. To up the luxury factor, add pops of gold accents through lamps, mirrors, clocks. And if you’d like to be sumptuous and extravagant, work in some black leather, with an armchair. Only want to dip your toes into the black idea? Then decorate your neutral palette room with all-white bedding. And then accessorise with a black & white striped blanket or rug.

For a more contemporary look, pair your black & white palette with dark wood accents — in the bed frame and bedside tables of your bedroom. Black and dark wood complement each other well.
If you have a white room, keep the bedding white also. Then style with black everything else — black bed frame, lamp, mirror etc.
You may want to consider an all-white room with black window trim. Bravery will be rewarded! If all other pieces in the room are kept neutral, the black windows will create a striking statement.

2. Black + Grey
Be subtle and very modern with a bedroom awash with black & grey tones. It’s a good colour scheme for a soothing and relaxed vibe. Focus predominantly on muted greys and inject black accents with — picture frames, mirrors, rugs etc. An excellent opportunity to include a variety of textures and fabrics and give the colour black a more earthy feeling. In this type of room, linen bedding always suits.

3. Black + Navy
What’s another winning combination? Black & navy. A once never to be done combo, it’s now celebrated in many interior design circles. And it’s easy to see why. The colours match together seamlessly, creating a sleek modern look. You can add navy into your room with chairs & pillows — and we show you a few navy bedding options below.
4. Go Wild With Prints
It's great when you have black as the foundation of a room. It gives you the freedom to play with prints & patterns in an unrestricted way. Try to pick prints that incorporate the colour black in them or complement it — this will give the styling of your room a coherent look. Usually, black is super sleek and modern, while florals may seem old-fashioned — yet when combined, the contrast can be very contemporary. For a dark romance vibe, moody black walls lend themselves perfectly to a floral bedspread.

5. Green With Foliage
Looking to counteract the starkness of black walls? Add greenery into the room. It's up to you. You can exaggerate as far as you like with the foliage — create an urban jungle if that makes you happy. To seamlessly tie the whole room together, decorate plants in black or gold vases.
