Black Paint: 9 Reasons You Should Bring on the Bold

The idea of using black paint in a room is one I couldn’t live without. It’s one of my favorite ways to add some eye catching contrast to a space. However, I know some people get intimidated at the idea of incorporating such a dark shade. Well, I’m here to say fear not!! Having a bold wall- especially in black- can sometimes be the lively addition your room is begging for!! To show you what I mean, I pulled together some design inspo of rooms that use black paint to give it some pop!

All black paint from my designs were from Sherwin Williams in shade Caviar.
