Elegant Black Living Room

Dare to paint both walls and trims dark.

Ebony-painted walls are daring, bold and fearless — and the key component of the new neutral look. Brighten it up with natural fibres such as bamboo, wicker and seagrass, and a light floor. Add sculptural interest with intricate antiques and warmth with kilims and groupings of curios. Finally, choose light art that pops off the dark walls.
