Decorating with black: 11 inspiring ways to use this dramatic shade

Decorating with black is a wonderful way to make a bold statement. A strong, robust shade, black is guaranteed to bring drama and impact to interiors and is becoming increasingly popular as we become more confident with color.

‘Black adds drama, strength and solidity to a space. It can also portray edginess and creates a contemporary look even when paired with more a traditional furniture,’ says Justyna Korczynska, senior designer at Crown. ‘Dark colors have become more mainstream – they can really give a room a feeling of luxury and sophistication and work surprisingly well in a small area to give it some grandeur,’ she adds.
