The rise of black in the interior is remarkable. With a black color the atmosphere immediately gets an enormous boost. Timeless and fashionable, robust and elegant, minimalist and mysterious; the dynamics of black in one room cannot be equalled. Due extra matte options, graphic and organic structures have made black materials even more attractive to apply in a contemporary interior design. So let’s go black!
BLACK & MOOD LIGHT
We get excited about these two bedroom interiors and walk-in-closet by Art Partner. The combination of black wood with ribbing structure and the warm naturals brings a wellness feeling in these spaces. The use of indirect light in the wall behind the bed, in the niche of the bench and subtly in the black display case ensures the perfect mood light and balances the whole.
This interior idea is a state-of-the-art translation of the old-fashioned bedstee. Architects and interior builders create small open rooms to make optimal and multifunctional use of the space. Because the room is black, this sleeping place has yet a quiet & chic-sober look. During the day this bed could be used as daybed decorated with plaid and some decorative cushions and for the evening you have a cosy shelter place for privacy.
The black kitchen becoming increasingly popular, but this kitchen is ‘next level’ when it comes to the latest trends. Interior designer Paliychuk Olga creates a perfect combination of material, shape and design. The use of black in combination with tiles in a vertical grid pattern that runs through the ground is stylish and functional at the same time.
The finish of walls with a weathered exterior look is becoming more common inside. Natural stone materials with a monumental appearance make the open bathroom a pleasure to look at. A spotted texture on the wall gives the livingroom a tough and lived-in appearance and the black details and accessories provides contrast and dynamic.
MAKE A STATEMENT WITH BLACK IN THE TREND SUITE NOIR
Nowadays, the warm atmosphere experience of the livingroom flows seamlessly into the kitchen. If you choose for a black kitchendesign, you are assured of a modern, tough but also architectural look. This trend signalment involves a combination in the interior of multiple shades of black and a mix of materials and structures.
In the interiors of the latest hotspots, black plays a dominant role. Often in the form of multiple black wood veneers and sheet materials applied to walls, ceilings and the open kitchen. Spectacular example is the Japanese restaurant Tori Tori Santa Fe from studio Esrawe in Mexico City. The cylindrical light sculpture of wood in the middle of the room is inspired by the armored breastplate of the Samurai.
INTERIEURTIP: MAKE A NICHE
Design the wall cabinet with a niche, in the kitchen or create a niche in the wall off the livingroom to give an artwork the perfect place. Always consider by add some lighting that it should be dimmable. By covering the niche in a color or a contrasting material, it is even more optically ‘in the image’
BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL
The black version of Fogia’s Bollo chair is our favorite for now, perfect seating comfort and an ultimate style statement! Decorations in the interior that are black have a subdued presence with a quiet appearance.
