Tips & Ideas For Creating The Perfect Black & White Bedroom
When executed correctly, a black and white bedroom has the potential to be incredibly chic and modern. It can seem daunting at first, but with the right balance, black and white bedroom decor can easily turn in to your favorite room in the house. We’ve put together some tips with expert advice to help get you started. You’re only a few steps away from incorporating this classic color combination in your favorite space.
Don’t Be Afraid of Simple Prints
Incorporating prints in the form of accent pillows, throw blankets, and wall art help to add a bit of drama and warm the space. Our designers love this simple geometric print from Jonathan Adler or this Yaha cotton striped throw pillow from AllModern to add more visual elements to the room. When adding multiple prints into space, make sure to mix large bold prints with smaller simple prints. This will prevent the decor from looking too busy and provide balance to the design.
Create a Balance Of Both Colors
Too much of either black or white can be overwhelming and will start to feel stark. An easy way to avoid this is to start off your bedroom design with balance. Spacejoy designer Cassandra suggests starting with white walls. She adds “This will create a perfect backdrop to incorporate a gallery wall of black frames and another black decor that really pop and draw your eye to the details”. White walls will also help keep this color scheme bright and open, preventing the darker colors from swallowing the room.
Incorporate Metallic Accents
There’s nothing more eye-catching than a metallic accent in an otherwise neutral bedroom. A few ways to add in in some shine to an otherwise neutral room are gold dresser hardware, a silver lampshade, or a rose gold throw pillow. Check out this metallic accent Glam Transitional Bedroom designed by Spacejoy experts.
A simple color palette may seem one dimensional at first, but adding texture in the way of design extras will add a ton of depth and visual interest. Incorporate a variety of textures including flat velvets, rustic woods, soft linen, and shaggy faux furs. A shag area rug, textured throw pillows, or indoor house plant will help to break up the black and white decor. Our designers especially love fun throw pillows like this Lana round sheepskin pillow from Article.
