Black Wallpaper – Sophisticated And Chic

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Holden Decor - Links Black wallpaper has become very popular in home decorating. Black walls are very on trend at the moment which is the complete opposite of the recent trend of using all white for walls. When using black as a feature wall it becomes a visual feast for the eyes. It delivers impact and comes across as bold, edgy and dramatic. It also has the ability to look very glamorous and can easily fit into a very luxurious feel when teamed with the right accessories and furnishings.

Although black walls are very popular, the overall effect of all black paint is a little too much. That’s where black wallpaper comes in because even though it is predominantly black there is still some pattern or texture to it to give it an extra dimension. This makes the visual effect interesting while still achieving the darkness that’s required.

Having installed quite a few black papers we are always amazed at how one wall of black can totally change the whole look of a space. We see it as being very elegant and decadent in a lot of ways. The advantage a wallcovering has over paint is the ability to include beautiful details such as velvet flock, texture, glitter and metallics to really ramp up the effect and drama of black.

Not many wallpapers have complete black without at least a little bit of grey, silver, metallic or maybe white. Below we will show some stunning examples of black papers.

If you really want a complete overall black wallpaper with no other colour at all you could always purchase an embossed anaglypta wallpaper with raised texture which comes in white but is paintable. Anaglypta wallcoverings has numerous designs to choose from and they look great painted. They are quite a thick paper which allows the embossed design to really stand out.
