Upcoming Trends: Black Interiors

Forrest Glover

Black interiors are one of our favorite up and coming trends at Forrest Glover Design. Black interiors do something light interiors just can't which is captivating gorgeous contrast between furnishings and lighting to create that cohesive and sophisticated space in your home.

Our personal favorite interior design pairing is black walls combined with magenta furnishings and blonde wood. Adding a chandelier or beams will even further establish that extravagant atmosphere to compliment the darker color palette.

In the design above featured by Farrow and Ball, you can see how the black interiors are complimented by colorful furnishings and natural light. Contrary to popular belief, black interiors can truly enhance the warmth of your space. Even in a tight space, you can make your room look larger than life with the right design. Some rooms just want to be dark. Don't fight them. One of our favorite shades of black paint is Off Black by Farrow and Ball.

This gorgeous design by Substance is featured in Hong Kong restaurant Paradis. The design of Paradis was inspired by the Haitian Goddess of the moon; Mawu. With this inspiration in mind, they found this beautiful wallpaper with minimalist detailing that enhances and ties together the space with the custom brass light and bathroom fixtures.

We love this flower arrangement by our friends over at Studio Mondine. Black interiors elevate those gorgeous pastel flowers and sophisticated design. Pastels and black compliment one another extremely well. That being said, black looks good with practically everything, and you can become very creative when deciding on how to design your space with black.

Once again in this design on Remodelista, we see how gorgeous this kitchen is due to the brass sink paired with dark interiors lined in glamorous brass paneling. We love this design for how simple yet sophisticated and high end it is.

In this design above by Steven Gambrel, we see the gorgeous blonde wood we love so much again being paired so nicely with the high gloss beams on the ceiling. We love how unique and exquisite this room turned out to be with the perfect decor to compliment the interiors of this home.
