Features and advantages of the room

Which furniture to choose?

Black furniture looks attractive against the light walls. Thus, it is possible to emphasize the beautiful curves of expensive chairs and a sofa, the openwork carving of the bed, or the perfectly smooth lines of minimalist furniture.

White furniture on the background of dark walls looks no less attractive. It will be a bright accent of the room. This contrast of furniture and decoration will look especially attractive in the dark if you choose the right lighting.

For a black and white bedroom, not only single-color pieces of furniture are suitable, but also instances that combine two or more colors. Such options look harmoniously only against the background of plain walls that do not have prints and patterns.

But do not think that single-colored bed and wardrobes will look boring in such a bedroom. This furniture can be effectively beaten with bright accents.

Add bright accents

In the black and white bedroom should be bright and rich accents. To do this, you can choose decorative elements of different colors. It can be:

  • decorative vases;
  • lamps and chandeliers;
  • figurines;
  • shelves on the walls;
  • decorative wall plates;
  • photos and pictures in bright frames;
  • Textiles: pillows, curtains, blankets, rugs, etc.

All add-ons and accessories should be designed in one palette and should not be too many in the bedroom. For a contrast room 2-3 succulent accents will be enough. The most optimal elements will be white, red, beige, turquoise, blue, blue, violet, silver, gold and green.

In such rooms, furniture looks attractive, complemented by interesting details. For example, it can be a high headboard with black rhinestones or furniture studs, cabinets and bedside tables with contrasting golden handles, etc.

Ornaments and drawings

In a contrasting bedroom will look different images and prints on finishing materials and bright accents. For example, it can be a suspended ceiling with inconspicuous patterns or photo printing.

For furnishings in modern style, you can pick up accessories and decor with geometric motifs, stripes of different colors, bars, or a cell. In the classic interior of such parts should not be too much.

Floral prints look harmoniously in a contrasting ensemble. Such details are often present on the wallpaper. With the help of them you can dilute the severity and conciseness of a contrasting bedroom.

You should be very careful with psychedelic patterns. They look stylish and interesting, but the room must be strictly metered. If we are talking about wallpaper with such motifs, then they should be glued only on one wall or half of it.


If the room is dominated by black color, then there should be enough lamps and floor lamps in it, otherwise the room will be too gloomy and gloomy.

The appearance of lighting devices should be suited to the style of the interior. For example, for the trendy high-tech or discreet minimalism, you should choose metal options, and for classic, modern and baroque - refined ceiling chandeliers, luxury floor lamps and wall lamps.

For an attractive vintage setting, lamps of unusual shapes are ideal. This may be the original lighting in the form of wall slats or a large metal lampshade.

For rooms with low ceilings, you should not choose large hanging chandeliers, otherwise the room will seem even smaller.

Do not forget about natural light. For example, in a room with a predominance of black large windows should be present. If there are small windows in the room, it is better to arrange it in such a way that there will be more white color.

Curtains, decor and textile elements

Contrast curtains should not be selected for a black and white room. It is best to choose light translucent curtains and complement them with heavy dark curtains.

Textiles must match the style of the room. For example, materials with patterns and prints will harmoniously look in a minimalist interior, and for the classics monochrome fabrics will be a good option.

You should not overload the interior with a large number of two-color textiles, as this can make the ensemble tasteless.
