Home Decor Ideas shares with you inspiring black living room designs.
Black is the most famously versatile, eternally fashionable color, and immediately makes any room feel more modern and elegant. It’s a little easier to take this bold leap in a private area like a bathroom or bedroom, but the living room requires a degree of commitment that might require some reassurance.
That’s why we share with you inspiring black living room designs with gorgeous black decor – some feature just simple black accents and furniture and others embrace it all the way. Some of the living rooms are spacious and open and others use black to cozy up in a small layout. However you want to approach this ever-contemporary color, it’s here. Take a look!
A bold elephant print serves as an engaging focal point, with pendants cleverly occupying some of the white space. Recessed lighting on either side of the gold stripe creates a dazzling play of light and shadow.
The other side of the room is a little more practical. The black entertainment center includes a large sliding glass door to protect the contents of the bookshelf and display cabinet to the left.
Any interior with a bright or clear view could benefit from a dark-themed interior. Black really does make a great color for a media center, blending seamlessly into the background.
Mitaka Dimov designed this dark apartment living room around an uplifting message, “Stay Positive”. A variety of materials are layered for richness and depth, enhancing the sense of contrast created by the black and white color theme.
The lightweight white dining set takes full advantage of the sunlight it receives through the luminous curtains. A glossy backlit panel draws attention to the uplifting message. Dark and comfortable near the media area, bright and open at the table. The geometric seats are from the Chair One series by Konstantin Grcic.
The table is sleek and minimalist but features two stealthy drawers for extra storage space.

Dark, mysterious, and luxurious – this living room embraces its high ceilings with tall boiserie dressed down with textural black paint. Excellent chandeliers offer soft mood lighting but perhaps most striking of all, a waterfall of ferns cascade down a portion of the wall near the foot of the stairs.
This artistic black and white living room utilizes a solid block design. The matte black accent wall centers the living space, a suspended credenza and shelf unit sharing the spotlight with a bold canvas. Dramatic black curtains line each side of the fully windowed wall to the left and very likely transform the entire room when drawn.
Here’s another interior with a single accent wall in silky black. It’s a perfect backdrop to the geometric wire lamps above, and the zigzag rug off to the left helps integrate the side chair and tables. A good amount of unfinished concrete stands between the decorative living room and the staircase, likely to highlight the amazing partially-suspended cantilever treads.
Matte black walls with white wainscoting offer dramatic contrast. Grayscale furniture makes a warmer impression – and the cheery pink pillows seem to brighten the whole living room.
