Paint it Black


If you've ever been tempted to paint a wall in your home black, these gorgeous images will have you running to the paint shop. I love the how the black walls below provide a bold contrast with the white flooring and cabinetry. They also make the black and white artworks by the homeowner Ylva Skarp, a calligrapher and designer really pop.

Wanting to make her new brass kitchen tap stand out, Nina Holst of Stylizimo decided to stain her DIY plywood splash back in black. A clever alternative to using black tiles, I love the way the texture of the plywood is still visible, and the little shelf is an added bonus!

Rather than close in this tiny kitchen, the black painted wall actually helps define the dining area.

Henriette Amlie Kalbekken of Designlykke has not only painted her bedroom wall black, she has given the legs of her marble table a coat of black paint, as well as her bookshelves.

Painting furniture is great for those who want to test the waters. I also really like the subtlety of these painted window frames. It adds a nice contrast and accentuates their impressive height.

Finally, black painted floors. Not easy to keep to clean, but together with white walls and ceilings, they look absolutely stunning.
