Since it’s Black Friday…I thought we should take some time to think black in the nursery. When I first started Alphabet monkey in 2010, black was a colour I started adding to my designs as mums were looking away from traditional colours. And today..well I think we all know the monochrome trend is huge.
But are you brave enough to actually paint a wall black? Especially a nursery wall?
Check out these gorgeous examples and I guarantee you will be won over with black feature walls in the nursery.
The dark colour actually has an effect of receding so it looks further away creating an illusion of more space..not closing it in as some people may assume.
White and colour really pops against this deep base.
How pretty yet minimal is this space for a little girl..it feels far from stark.
I personally think the rooms with timber and textured rugs are my favourites..it really create a lot of interest against the strength of the black base.
So, what do you think?
Have I won you over?
Although pastels are trending again in nurseries, I don’t think black is going anywhere soon. You could also do a similar style with navy which could work equally well in boys or girls spaces.
