Stunning Black (& Beautiful) Home Decor Ideas

Think you can’t decorate predominately with black because it’s too macabre of a color? These stunning black home decor ideas will change your mind!

Think you can't decorate predominately with black because it's too macabre of a color? These stunning black home decor ideas will change your mind!I’m going to be honest – when I first heard that black home decor was a “thing,” I couldn’t believe it. Who would paint their walls black? That was insane to me! As far as I was concerned, predominately black decor is reserved for Elvira’s home or someone that really loves Halloween. It’s not for “normal” people.

I was wrong my friends – oh so wrong. Black home decor is upscale and adds a refined, sophisticated feel to a room.

When used correctly, it speaks of someone intentional with their home decor as opposed to someone who just lets it happen.

Black never goes out of style, and the word on the street is that it can help you sleep better and/or even make a room look bigger (counterintuitive, right?)

If you’re interested in finding out more about black home decor and how you can incorporate it, take a look at the examples below. I promise you’ll look at black decor in a way you never have before!

I'm a huge fan of black, so all of these home decor ideas definitely appeal to me. I've been wanting to redo my apartment for so long, but I've been waiting for the right inspiration. I LOVE the big grey chair that has the black and orange accent pillows. Something like that would look amazing in my office.
