The graphic combination of black and white works as an accent and an overriding design theme, as demonstrated by this open and airy bedroom designed by Michelle Miller of Michelle Miller Interiors. “We wanted the overall feeling of this bedroom to be very soothing,” says Miller. “But we also wanted to add a bit of whimsy. So, we had a custom headboard fabricated in a bold black-and-white stripe, with nailheads to add a bit of texture. An oversized white lamp with a black shade completes the look without overpowering the room.”

In her bedroom she went with an unconventional colour – pitch black. ‘I had a black wall in my old office and absolutely loved it,’ she says. ‘I thought it would be unexpected to bring that colour into the bedroom. This could have been very hit or miss, but it ended up being a very cosy, den-like space.’.

I find black and white to be a perfect color combination for the bedroom. Sure, it may not offer the room the warm glow that others colors such as beige, brown or the natural color of the wood do but the simplicity of the combination creates a classic, timeless and peaceful look, which is exactly what the room needs to feel relaxing and inviting. And even though it may be very simple in theory, a black and white bedroom can stand out in numerous interesting ways.

“One of the greatest design myths is that black will make a space look smaller,” says designer Michael Habachy of Habachy Designs, who used black walls to dramatic effect in this master bedroom. “On the contrary: black walls can make the space feel larger, because it blurs the visual edges of the room. Just think of the night sky, which has a sense of infinite space,” says Habachy.

A peculiar thing happens when you make the big move to New York City; your appreciation for the color black almost immediately hits fever pitch. The sleek shade will inevitably take up at least 90 percent of your wardrobe, and when you do branch out, the hues you choose are likely to be classic neutrals. (Think: gray and white, which coincidentally pair perfectly with black.) The colorful hues you used to adore will fade to the back of your mind — apologies to my former passion, turquoise — replaced with a desire to pair black with even more black.

Black paint can be just right in a bedroom — even one that’s light, bright and airy — if you use it judiciously. “Accent walls haven’t gone out of style, especially when done in chic colors,” says designer Dayka Robinson of Dayka Robinson Designs. “Don’t be afraid of a black focal wall. When combined with a bright accent color, graphic prints and eclectic accessories, the resulting look is bold, clean and modern.”

In a richly colored room, the cooling influence of black and white can be just what the doctor ordered. “Since the violet walls in this bedroom are very bold, the furniture and bedding needed to tone the look down,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn, who chose art and bedding with a chic black, white and gray color scheme, for balance.

Applied on wallpaper. An all-black wallpaper isn’t much different than a painted black wall, but when a pattern is introduced and rendered in black gloss and matte, the effect is striking.

Work some dark magic with black – Yes, black is a neutral too. If you’ve been bold enough to get this far with upping your neutral palette, then creating a whole scheme around black will be an easy next step. The trick here is not to turn your house into a bat cave, but to judiciously add plenty of light sparkling accents – mirrors, sparkly hardware and light fittings, crisp white linen, even shiny ribbon accents on pillows and curtains.

“We all know there are thousands of different whites, but most people don’t realize that black comes in different shades as well,” says designer Erin Benedict of Benedict August Interiors and Design. “The black used in this project is actually chalkboard paint, which has its own magical quality. Chalkboard paint has a dead flat sheen and the chalk residue gives it a slightly mottled look (kind of like a barely perceptible faux finish). The combination gives it a lovely soft, velvety texture that we played up in this room by using it as a backdrop for the apple green high-gloss lacquered chest. The contrast is dramatic and fun. Also, the ‘white’ trim in this room is actually cream but it reads as a warm white because it contrasts against the black.”

Simple, but so sophisticated, black-and-white striped drapes create an instant focal point of an oversized window — and don’t have to cost a fortune, says designer Sarah Macklem of The Yellow Cape Cod, who made the window treatments herself. “I used iron-on fabric bonding tape to attach black fabric stripes to ready-made twill drapes, finishing the raw edge with grosgrain ribbon. This was a simple and inexpensive DIY project that had huge impact in the space. These drapes are a great example of black-and-white decor that is anything but boring.”

When black is the main color for the bedroom, feature such as mirrors, lamps and artwork can be used to brighten up the space. For example, the tall mirror behind the nightstand is a really nice touch in this case.

A black and white bedroom can be a bit too harsh and sober for some, in which case you can try to give the space a more casual and relaxed feel. For example, opt for an open clothes rack design, an artistic painting displayed on a wall or for wooden flooring painted white.

Black and white is a great choice when you want to add a splash of personality to any space, from the bedroom to the foyer. “Here, I infused drama by embracing a very large-scale pattern on the walls and using a chest with bold, contrasting paint,” says designer Tobi Fairley of Tobi Fairley Interior Design.

A mix of bold, graphic patterns in a simple black-and-white palette infuse a traditional space with updated edge — without veering from the room’s architectural style. “High contrast equals high impact in this simple cottage bedroom, while vintage headboards and old-fashioned roller shades provide nostalgic charm,” says designer Tom Stringer of Tom Stringer Design Partners.

A huge black wall can darken the room, even if the rest of the walls are white. In this case, however, the slanted ceiling offers a perfect opportunity to include a black wall in the décor without making it stand out too much. It’s merely like a headboard which extends on either side to incorporate the nightstands.

Black and white even works well in a kids’ room — creating the perfect backdrop for bright toys, books and accessories. Here, designer Holly Bender of Holly Bender Interiors chose a black-and-white zebra rug to create movement in a room that boasts rich, gray walls. “I love deep shades of gray like Benjamin Moore’s Chelsea Gray. It provides a warm, yet modern, feel and really pops against white trim,” says Bender.
