Paint it Black: Dark Interior Walls That Feel Light

If you’re looking for black wall inspiration in photographs, your first finds will be either very deliberately glam or very self-consciously “modern.”

But, as it turns out, walls in shades ranging from ink to charcoal to ebony can be inviting, warm, and light. What does this mean? This means that black walls are not just for the rich or the trying to be glamorous or the poetic, gothic, and moody among us. Black walls and nearly-black walls can be for everyone. We think these photos demonstrate that. Maybe they’ll inspire you to “paint it black.”

Hues to try: Black Fox and Caviar (Sherwin Williams), Black Beauty, Black Satin, Onyx, and Almost Black (Benjamin Moore), Black Suede (Behr), Black Heron, Kettle Black, Raven Black (Valspar).
