Home Design Trends: Matte Black
May 6, 2019
People tend to shy away from black when it comes to designing their homes. But with enough natural light in your space to pull it off, tempered with the perfect balancing act of supporting materials (like washed wood, shimmering gold light fixtures and white quartz or tile),black makes a bold statement that’s impossible to ignore. Edgy and, at the same time, sophisticated, black accents enhance surrounding shapes and colors and add definition, contrast and a boost of drama to a space.
Multiple options are available and currently on trend: Update your kitchen using matte black cabinetry with gold hardware,gold light fixtures or white quartz countertops. Or try a gold faucet against a matte black focal wall in a powder room. Contemporary black hardware looks seriously stylish on light wood cabinetry, and a matte black kitchen sink looks smart installed with butcher block wood countertops. Finish it off with punches of your favorite color via accent pieces like rugs, throw pillows and artwork, and you will have a harmonious design that is both stunning as well as warm and welcoming. See it yourself to believe it.
