decorating with black.

Sick of the interior decorations in your home? Thinking of changing it up for a bit? Have you ever thought of decorating with black? I know, sounds weird, right? Black? Black, and darker colors in general, usually make a room seem smaller. But if you decorate carefully enough, black decor can make a room really stand out. I will share some tips with you that I found from articles online.

According to articles from Homedit and About.com, it is best to allow natural light to flow into a room decorated in black. You don’t have to have every piece of furniture black, or paint the walls black; a touch of black here or there will do. I have posted some examples below. You can also find additional examples on the links above.

Another trend is black and white, particularly black and white stripes. Seems bold, right? Well if you’re into black as much as I am, you’re into making a bold statement–even for decorating. I mean the black and white stripped trend is awesome.

Clearly all these rooms were all inspired by Beetlejuice. I mean, how could they not be?
