Stark strokes: black and white bedroom

Want to make a striking statement? Try using black and white theme for the décor of your bed room. The contrasting colors create a stark and eternal impression. Black is a dark mystical color while white is pristine and pure. When the two are put together a magical drama comes to life. Every element of décor of the room can be of either one color.

Wall color

The walls need not be painted in the solid colors. Of course if you like it the wall can be fully white. A more sophisticated effect can be given to the walls by using patterns involving a combination of these two colors. Wall papers with subtle patterns in this combination can be used.


The furnishings of the room need not all be in the same color. One color could be used more than the other. If the predominant color is white then the fixtures like light switches, door knobs, handles, hangers, latches etc, can be in black. If the table lamp is black, then the shade could either be white, or a combination of black and white or vice versa. If the table, chair, bed, dresser etc are all black, then the bed linen, curtains etc could be white or a combination of the two. One could use elements in other colors too like the lamp shade or the curtain tassel being in any other bright shade like red.

Floor them with it!

Flooring can enhance the dramatic impact of a room. A completely white floor will look great with a black and theme of the room. But if you like to use both then go in for a designed floor for a classic and sophisticated look.
