Dramatic and glamorous, trend lovers are adoring black and we couldn’t agree more.
This season the runway has been a monochromatic shade of obsidian and home designers have quickly followed suit adding black decor to the must-have list for stylish interiors.
Our favorite bloggers and trend sites have been chatting up this look. Even Style at Home is cheekily claiming “black is the new black.” Adding black accents has been a tried and true designer secret to create posh interiors forever. This season, black is here in a major way. We’re seeing black flooring, rugs, wallpaper, furniture and more.
Creating a room with such a strong feature color can be overwhelming and lots of people we’ve been talking to are nervous that such a dark color will feel depressing or harsh. Totally get it. I remember when my niece was a teenager and my brother was furious that she wanted to paint her room black. He called me for back up to talk her out of it but I just couldn’t do it. I loved her idea of having black walls and colorful bedding. Not my best sister moment but an awesome auntie moment.
Art and accessories are a great way to bring such a strong trend into the home without committing 100%. Try adding a few accent pieces and some new wall decor to bring the trend home without worrying that you may be making a mistake. For a posh look try adding gold as an accent like the NEW Astronomical Art Collection above by Wild Apple Portfolio just released this month on our to-the-trade website.
Our artists have artfully interpreted this trend by adding colorful designs to black backgrounds for a look that is undeniably stylish.
