Back in Black: The Hot New Home Design Trend
Looking to add some pizazz to your pad? Turns out the color black isn't just reserved for Halloween and Goth kids. According to many prominent interior designers, the hot new home design trend this year is the little black dress for your home. That's right; the hue of the season is the color black. Feeling bold? Here are a few ways to modernize your home and get back in black.
Designers like Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, and Chanel had inspired takes on the black palette on the runway, and the look can make a strong impression at home. Though the color black is admittedly an unconventional color choice, it's the perfect shade to make a powerful statement in any room. When done right, this mysterious hue can look stunning, sophisticated, and dramatically glam. In a Houzz.com poll, seventy-four percent of homeowners admitted to being a fan of black rooms, from bathrooms and kitchens to interior doors and exterior siding.
When it comes to incorporating this hot new design trend as the dominant color in a room, it helps if the space is large so as not to make a small room look smaller. When utilizing black in a bathroom space, incorporate lots of lighting so the space doesn't become too dark. Also, using a larger mirror will help circulate the light throughout the room. If you keep the ceiling white or a lighter shade, you'll find the combination will open up the room quite nicely.
Black walls don't have to make a space feel like a confined cave. Pairing this color with white gives it a vintage glamour style. Playing with other punches of color and variety of textures will style up any room. If the color black seems to cold or overpowering for your room, you can always pair it with warm wood mixes such as cherry wood cabinets and soft accessories like earth toned throw pillows to keep it chic and visually appealing.
This dark dusky hue isn't just reserved for walls. Because black absorbs light, incorporating the color on your floor in the form of dark wood or tile radiates glamour. And as long as you incorporate plenty of reflective surfaces to help bounce light through the space, the room won't look like there's just a big bottomless pit on the floor.
Lastly, if the philosophy of “go big or go home” doesn't exactly suit your style or if you're renting from a Phoenix property manager and cannot paint the home, black accessories are still very trendy. Think lamp shades, window coverings, and art frames to add a taste of this back in black trend. And don't forget, if the color black feels too strong of a color for your home, there are at least fifty shades of grey and charcoal that work just as well in creating a sharp and smoky ambience to your space.
