How To: Paint it black

Painting a room, wall or anything black is a bold move. Whether you're looking for drama, elegance or emphasis, this dark shade can transform any space. While tall ceilings and light filled rooms call for dark accents, black can also make a small space chic and cozy. 

Here are a few tips on how to make black work in any space:

Accentuate architectural details

Emphasize the design features of your home by highlighting them in black.


Black is a sleek background for contrasting colours and helps brights really pop!

Show off art

Doesn't the art pop on the dark walls! So gorgeous.
