With black walls surging in popularity in the home decor space, many are looking to see how they can incorporate the bold color into their home. As Halloween approaches, we're sharing design inspiration on how to add black window coverings, accent walls, and more into your home.

Make a Statement with Black Window Coverings

Don't be afraid to take a modern spin on a classic black and white design. Balance black window coverings with white picture frames or opt for a two-toned wall like the one pictured below. To make the space feel ultra-modern, add light grey candle holders and minimal vase sculptures.

Take a Gothic Spin on Modern Farmhouse

This chic gothic look is easier to achieve than you might think. Here's what you'll need:

A modern bathroom with black walls and white countertops and subway tile. Top-down/bottom up woven wood shades are covering the window.

Start With Black Walls. This gothic, yet modern farmhouse bathroom feels incredibly contemporary with contrasting black walls, white cabinets, and subway tiles. Its elevated design feels sleek and luxurious, while the Top-Down/Bottom-Up shades provide ample privacy and give off incredible style.

Try Brown Window Coverings for a Scary Good Look

Painting a wall a dark color can be intimidating, but the key to pulling off the look is using the right accent pieces. Brown woven wood shades soften this bold accent wall, while adding another textured element in the room.

A Hauntingly Gorgeous Victorian Bedroom

Mix high-end and aged perfection with velvet or brocade upholstery and a crumbling fresco. Don’t live in an Italian villa with hand painted treasures on the walls? Scour thrift stores and antique shops for vintage artwork. The more beat up the frames are, the better.

Use Jewel Tones for a Gothic Look

Dramatic Accents. This gothic, Victorian look doesn’t have to be completely void of color. Adding jewel tones like burgundy, deep teal and emerald will give a regal, yet haunting feel to any room's decor.
