Decorating With Black Colour
- Black is often used with white for a sophisticated decor statement. Black and white present such a strong contrast that only brave decorators use them over large areas. The dramatic effect of black and white can be stark and cold unless handled with sensitivity. The secret is to have lots of colorful artifacts and interesting paintings to display against the white background. It’s virtually impossible to go contemporary with decor and not have at least one stalwart piece of furniture in black.
- Japanese style of contrasts has become popular in the West. The Japanese have perfected the art of minimalism and use very few pieces of beautifully shaped furniture whose shape is highlighted by the sharp contrast between dark objects and their light background.
- Black and white is a sophisticated choice for a kitchen. Black is also the perfect foil for neutrals and bights in a contemporary kitchen.
- Black is the best choice for blending shapes and masking unwanted features such as exposed pipework.
- Red, white, and black is considered the most romantic colour palette and is an almost fail-safe scheme.
- A very bright and cheery room needs a place for the eye to rest. Try a simple black chair which provides a focal point without calling too much attention to itself.
