Black Canvas Art: Colors for Contemporary Rooms
One of the reasons black is so popular is due to its ability to blend with any color. Whether you have a colorful or neutral space, black is the perfect accent color. While black lacquer may be a more retro take on the black trend, matte black will look more modern. It’s all about determining the look you’re trying to achieve. If you really want to create a 2022-inspired space, try a monochromatic color scheme. While it might seem daring to go with a palette comprised of black, gray, and charcoal, this is the ultimate method of modernizing the gray trend from past years. Add colors in the form of smaller accessories and keep your base cool and neutral. Accessories like books, trinkets, and textiles can act as pops of color, rather than selecting entire pieces of furniture in an accent hue.
Edgy Décor Ideas
For the ultimate piece of black décor, consider a Banksy-inspired canvas print. Edgy décor with a grungy touch is hot for 2022. Curated by our art director, Tirzah Goodman, our Banksy-style collection is full of poignant and powerful artwork. Don’t just decorate your home, make a statement! Pick a piece of art that makes a social statement, and hang it in a highly visible area of your home. Transitional spaces like hallways and entryways are the perfect place to experiment with this bold, graffiti-inspired trend.
Creating a Modern Boho Room with Black Canvas Art
Black can be boho too! While you might automatically put black in the category of classic or contemporary, there are styles in between you’d be remiss not to explore. For example, a laid-back boho theme can instantly be modernized with a splash of black. While boho might initially conjure up visions of earthy colors like green, terracotta, and tan, we’re flipping the script in 2022 and giving boho an unexpected makeover. Play with darker colors like black, mauve, plum, and navy. The last thing you want is for your interior to look “basic,” and these hues will ensure that your space looks up-to-date. Try hanging a black mandala-style print for an automatic boho, spiritually-charged touch. Pair your dark-toned décor with rich textiles like velvet for another surprising twist. Finish your space with organic elements like live greenery and wicker details.
Adding Black to Your Main Living Space
Black accent walls are all the rage for living rooms in 2022. Paint a single wall (or your entire room) in a dark charcoal shade. Rather than a true black, charcoal or dark gray will give a black effect without looking too harsh. Make sure your space is well-lit to offset the dark details. You can even choose furniture in different shades of black and gray for a super-bold look.
Black and White Canvas Wall Art
A great way to maximize the black accent wall and add a touch of contrast is by hanging a black and white canvas print. The white will create a much-needed reprieve from the black base. However, your print can still have brushstrokes of black to maximize the monochromatic appearance.
Boost Your Utility Room Style with Black Décor
Don’t neglect the functional spaces in your home! When designing, we tend to focus on the highly trafficked areas like the living room or dining space. While these areas are undeniably important, décor pros will tell you that neglecting less-popular rooms is a major design faux pas. Don’t give yourself away as an amateur! Even if it’s just one piece of stylish décor, add a trendy touch to areas like your laundry room, half-bathroom, or mud room. Black canvas art is the perfect way to give your space a boost of style without breaking the bank or committing to a full remodel.
