Apply the color black in your interior

Black gives your interior a chic, sleek, contemporary and stylish touch. You can give the walls a lick of black paint, but you can also go more subtle and integrate black into your interior by means of black accessories, such as a vase, tea light holder, cushions, plaids, ornaments and flower pots.


Play with different materials and colours. For example, next to a black ornament, place a gold vase. You will see that the black flattens out slightly and the gold comes out even more beautifully. Use both matt black and glossy black accessories, this creates an exciting mix and, despite the sober color, it never gets boring.

Paint the walls black

You can go in so many directions with black paint: from a totally black wall to black color areas.

With a completely black wall you make a statement. But it also creates a lot of peace in the room. Choose a wall that receives sufficient light, otherwise it can become too dark and the room appears smaller than it is. With such a totally black wall, clean lines come into their own, they give a special and beautiful effect to your interior. For example, a white, sleek cabinet or geometric, white plant stand stand out nicely against a black wall.


Black color areas

The color black lends itself perfectly to colored areas on the wall. These color areas are a good solution for those who want to use black in a small room, because this way the whole thing does not become too dark. Play with shapes and paint, for example, a black circle, square or triangle or make black panelling.


Black accents

Only paint the parts of the wall black that you want to give an accent or contrast. For example, be the only one to paint the wall of the fireplace black to make it stand out more.


Black panel

Don’t want to paint the wall black right away? Then paint an MDF panel black and place it in the desired place. The advantage of such a panel is that you can place it in a different place every time.


Black chalk paint

Paint a wall strip with black chalk paint. This gives a nice matte black effect on the wall and the best thing about it is of course that you can chalk on the wall. Hand letter it and make the most beautiful handmade works of art.

Black steel doors

Black eye-catchers on the wall
