The beauty of black is that you can add it to any existing color palette, or you can build a color scheme around it.

Whether you choose a colorful space with a touch of black, or a completely neutral space, wow your guests with your contemporary commitment.

Black Wall Art Décor: Size Guide

Choose the perfect size of black wall art to instantly elevate your interior. When it comes to wall décor, size matters! The key to making your home look like it was decorated by a professional is to focus on proportions as well as style. A well-balanced space will instantly set your home apart from the rest. Follow this pro advice from our article all about how to select wall art like an expert:

“In the case of large wall art, bigger really is often better! While you may not want a piece of artwork to overwhelm your space, homeowners tend to pick prints that are too small. For example, if you’re hanging your chosen piece of wall art above a credenza, the canvas should be almost as wide as the piece of furniture itself! A print that is too small can look awkward, unbalanced, and misplaced. In contrast, a well-proportioned piece of large wall art can transform your space in an instant.”

If you’re scrolling through our extensive catalog of wall art, keep this sizing tip in mind before you order your favorite print:

Black Modern Décor: Expert Tips

While gothic décor might immediately recall vintage, opulent imagery, 2022 is leaning into the modern-gothic trend. Take this traditionally romantic look and give it a contemporary twist. Our resident design expert, Elimar Lobo Sáenz, explains how to execute the current gothic look:

Gothic décor is all about romance – through and through. In its own, distinct way, every distinctively gothic element screams, ‘drama, decadence, and glamour.’ This is the perfect formula if you’re after a striking, eye-catching atmosphere. Pick silk, satin, and velvet when it comes to fabrics. Look for dynamic patterns and textures. Consider satin bedding and pillows paired with subtle lace curtains as a romantic finishing touch.”

Black Bathroom Wall Décor

If you’ve fallen in love with modern black wall décor, but you’re not sure which room to decorate first, consider your bathroom! This personal space is often overlooked when it comes to design. A contemporary piece of black wall art can take your bathroom to the next level. For an extra-modern look, go for a large multi-panel canvas to hang above your sink. Look forward to getting ready each morning with an up-to-date, elegant space.

Black and White Bathroom Wall Décor

For another take on the monochromatic trend, try a black and white bathroom. If your goal is to make your bathroom feel chic and luxurious, you can’t go wrong with black and white. Embrace minimalism with simple labels and hidden clutter. A bathroom should feel clean and refreshing, which is why black and white is the ideal color scheme.
