Black is the new black.
Tailored and bold. Sleek and powerful. Traditional and elegant. Essential and classic. Whether it is being played up as a focal point or dialed down as an accent color, black is back and it’s quickly becoming a staple in home design.
The great part about using black in your design is that the not-so-neutral color can take a room in so many different directions depending on how it’s used. Using black as an accent color is a great way to highlight other colors and make them pop or to add depth to a room. There are even shades of black, including ones featuring rich charcoal and indigo undertones.
Black Window Frames
Of course, besides painting your walls, there are other ways to incorporate black into our interior design, including your windows.
Many people are choosing to opt for black window frames to create a more dramatic contrast between the window and the vibrant colors of the outdoors or to add refinement to a bright space. Black blends beautifully into any home’s décor and brings a modern aesthetic to a space.

Black Kitchen Accents
Open kitchens are often a great space to experiment with black accents, since the airiness allows for it not to feel too closed in. Black cabinetry or islands can create a contemporary feel, while remaining crisp and clean paired with a bright color such as white.
If you’re looking for something a little less dramatic, black subway tile is a bold twist to a more traditional backsplash.
Black and Jewel Tones
Another popular pairing in interior design currently is black and bold jewel tones. Black pairs beautifully with simple, yet bold, colors like navy and cobalt blues and deep greens. Whether you choose to paint an accent wall, or keep is minimal with a few accent pieces, these colors merge beautifully in a space.
As a bonus, try throwing in a few metallic pieces as well.
Black Entry Door
Looking to make a statement with your entryway?
A black entry door matches perfectly with bright colors, wood accents, or stone – making the perfect option for homes looking to tie in multiple textures.
A black door with clean lines and metallic hardware can give you a sleek, edgy design, while a glossy black front door is a great solution for a home with a patterned exterior such as brick, stone, or a combination.
While there are many more places in your home that black accents would fit, these three are currently topping our charts for design trends. But while popularity comes and goes, what’s really important is how your home makes you feel.
