Black and White Decor Trends for the Bedroom

These black and white bedroom décor trends are so timeless, it’s debatable whether or not they should even be called ‘trends’! Get inspired by some of the most popular ways to style colorless designs below – and see for yourself why black and white bedrooms are a favorite among interior designers everywhere.

1. A Color-Balancing Accent Chair

In a small, mostly black and white space, add a pop of color – without going overboard – by opting for just one statement piece in a bold attention-grabbing hue.

All-black-and-white got you down? The best cure for a case of the blues is, ironically, blue! Reverse the roles: make bright white the ‘base’ – and go darker with your accessories!

Want a more modern feel? Up the saturation of the black-and-white. The blacker the black, and the whiter the white, the crisper, cleaner, and trendier the vibe.

15. Pops of Pattern

Pattern is the new color – incorporate it in your throw pillows to bring a black and white bedroom to life.

16. Shine On

Why is black so elegant? Perhaps because it never asks for anything – it just gives. It gives a crisp backdrop to make other colors pop. It gives its versatility, making it easy to match with virtually every color out there. And it gives its depth – an infinite, rich depth that one could just swim in. Perhaps it’s all of these things, or perhaps it’s none, and the mystery of why black (and white) decor remains so timeless will remain just that: a mystery. Either way, we’re head over heels!

Which Colors Go with Black and White?

The short answer? All of them! Black and white is such a classic, versatile color combo, you really can't go wrong when introducing another hue into the mix. Remember, though, that the fewer colors that do go into the mix, the better, so stick to one or two 'pops' of colorful accents to invite – without overpowering or clashing – a dash of energy and life into an all black and white space.
