Using a raised, rounded oblique-shaped platform, effectively divide your living room space into a living area and a small study. This reading room or small office is centered on a black bookshelf built into the wall. Sliding across this shelving is a blackboard for notes and personal reflections. The rich dark theme of this room is emphasized by the addition of a black desk and track lighting. This can be contrasted with white items in the adjoining living space.
A black-accented room should be used to better define your space; bright natural light enhances this effect. This combination living and dining room focuses attention on the TV, viewable from anywhere in the room, affixed to its bold black feature wall. The dark area rug and black leather sofa serve to separate the room into two distinct functional areas. A wall with two large floor-to-ceiling windows lets in radiant sunlight that allows the room’s black features to better define your space.
Accentuate Brightness and Spaciousness with Black Flooring and White Walls
The depicted open kitchen-dining room’s dark flooring draws attention to its white walls, which makes the room seem larger and brighter. Black and white furniture, appliances and wall art further enhance this effect. At the same time, this makes the items and wall art in the room much more noticeable and interesting to the eye.
Conceal Distractions and Focus Energies with a Dark Kitchen
Kitchens are highly functional spaces that are home to a host of distractions. They are places where we clean, store, prepare food and often discard waste. As such, the liberal use of black conceals the inevitable dirt and grime of this specialized room. Black also hides features of the room, like storage cabinets and the back wall, we don’t want to draw attention to. At the same time, a white countertop focuses your attention on the primary function of the kitchen as a food preparation zone. These design concepts are exemplified by the photographed room.
Black is Perfect for a Sleep-Inducing Bedroom
Facilitate your bedroom’s sleep-inducing power with a light-limiting dark design that will stimulate melatonin production any time of day. Color walls various shades of black and subdued off-white and furnish your bedroom with black furnishings. The photographed room, partitioned by a partial wall, incorporates three functional spaces into a single room: a sleeping area; a dressing space; and a study.
