Choosing complimentary colours
Black can be treated as a neutral colour which means that you can put virtually any colour with it. The colours that tend to work best are vibrant tones such as pillar box red, hot pink or a zingy yellow. Use these as an accent colour for cushions, rugs or a statement chair. You could consider wallpapering a feature wall in a complimentary colour.
Metallic colours can also be used with black – silver, copper and gold make great accent colours. You can use for mirror frames, vases or picture frames. If used in a kitchen copper pans against a black background would look stunning and very unique.
You can also accessorise with sparkle, for example a crystal chandelier or glass lanterns.
