When choosing colors for the bedroom, we often go with our favorite hues or relaxing picks like green and blue. And why not? These shades seem to take the stress of another day away, prepping us for a well-deserved slumber. But have you ever considered painting your room black or white? Or maybe a combination of both? The interesting contrast can give your personal space a relaxing balance that's easy to decorate and maintain.

Here are four exceptional rooms plus tips on how you can pull off this look: 

Pair it with neutrals

Add more depth to your black-and-white room by adding shades of Slate Gray or Gainsboro. You can paint your walls white, use black accent pieces and wall art, and complete the look with gray sheets and pillows.

Add a pop of color

Would you like to have a quirky piece in the bedroom? Red can definitely stand out in a black room! Take inspiration from this space designed by Misty Floro and Pai Edles of Morfosis. The fiery red pendant lamp seem to be the focal point in the monochromatic room.

You may also work with touches of neon to perk up the space.

Furnish with sleek accessories

To avoid having a dull room, pick sleek and elegant accessories and pieces. Consider working with a black table lamp and black-and-white prints and frames.

Add an accent wall

If your walls are too plain and you want to jazz things up, you can add a striped accent wall! A striped wall would look extra lovely in a small bedroom as it can help create an illusion of a wider space.
