28 Ideas for Black Wall Interior Styling

Black walls: it seems like people either love them or hate them. A black walled interior is certainly a bold design choice and not for everyone. Black walls command attention in the most dramatic of ways. They absorb a lot of natural light, so be sure to include adequate artificial lighting in the room. If you don’t want to paint an entire room black, you can certainly test the waters with an accent wall, or keep the ceiling white. Read below to see 28 awesome examples of beautiful black walled interior styling, and our best tips for making it work in your home!
