Black Magic

Choosing black wallpaper may seem like a bold decision and one that is only made by the very brave but in actual fact there is no reason why anyone cannot make this dark wallpaper choice work them if they use it in the correct way. Black walls do not have to be dark and dingy, they can instead be very effective when created as part of an interior design project within the home. Though dark paper can accentuate any flaws in the wall itself, there are many ways in which it can work for you.

Firstly black wallpaper enables other colours incorporated in the design of the room to really stand out. So for example a pale coloured item of furniture or brightly coloured accessory would really get noticed in a room that had been papered in a dark colour. It can create quite a dramatic look and one which is more memorable and noticeable than if you had just stuck to ‘safe’ colours.

When you are looking to create a retro theme within a room then using smooth or textured wallpaper that is black can work really well to enhance the simple shapes that form part of the geometric and bold coloured designs typical to this theme. Bright colours will work well against the dark background and simple shapes will be accentuated by the simple wallpaper.

Simple patterns may also work well with black wallpaper – for example spots or stripes. You can choose wallpaper which is not necessarily a solid colour but which features black stripes. These designs often feature other colours such as silver, cream or gold and can work really well when introduced into a room which has another colour in it – such as red or blue.

There is no need to be frightened of using dark coloured wallpaper in the rooms of your home. It is as simple and easy to apply as other coloured, patterned or textured wallpaper. The key would be to keep everything else in the room fairly light so it doesn’t feel too dark and keep the furniture and furnishings simple if you have opted for heavily patterned wallpaper.
