In celebration of Halloween I wanted to create a color crush board that goes with this holiday’s most dominant shade – black. Scary, spooky, the color of midnight, black can definitely be intimidating. However, in the world of decor, it can also be the hue that brings some bold, sexy, and glamorous style home. While some of you may be dressing your homes in black today to scare a few kiddies, here are some black rooms that show you can live with this color all year long.

Black on black can be so beautiful. Birds on Branches Wallpaper by Ferm Living gives a room some layers, and depth, and all in a striking shade.

Black and mint may be my new favorite color combination. The pastel shade pops against the black walls and carpet. And with a little bit of white mixed in, this room feels open and airy even while enveloped in a dark shade.

Black is the perfect backdrop for jewel tones. Emerald green, teal, yellow, purple, all come to life when set against a black background.

I love how this office space uses unconventional materials — tiles! — to give the black wall some texture. The mix of shades among the tiles lightens up the room. And when black is paired with gold, the effect is warm and beautiful.

You can explore more black rooms over on my HGTV Color Crush: Shades of Black Pinterest board and my previous post Black Is Beautiful. And if you pin, be sure to share with me some of your favorite black rooms. Have an amazing Halloween!

  2. I just joined Pinterest this morning and was thrilled to see mention of your "Shades of Black" board. I repainted certain walls in my kitchen a flat black "shade" a few years ago with much success. As an accent wall, it shows the vaulted line of the white ceiling, adding more drama and height to the room. It also "amplifies the intensity" of other colorful items placed before it . . . similar to a pop of color against white but with more attitude and mystery.

    Placing white furniture and decor in a black room can look very chic and classy indeed!
