One unfortunate and common tendency while decorating a room among people is shying away from making use of black color on walls, floor and décor. Many people think that it will make their room feel dark or small, but it is not the case. You can paint your walls and decorate your living room with black quite successfully. First, you need to determine layout of room and furniture by ignoring color this moment. Use one graph paper to scale different options available.
Paint your room with black with a contrasting and bold color on a single wall and use special lighting on it for showcasing it more. You can use black furniture with white margins for making it stand-out against walls. Use cushion covers, lamp shades, curtains and table mats matching with this contrasting wall to create a wonderful theme in your dining room. A table top made of glass will add sparkle to your room.
