Dark colors—usually black—always tend to get a bad rap for making a space look cramped and moody, especially when used in tiny rooms like your bedroom or the T&B. While there are instances that this midnight hue can be overkill for design, when done right, it can also look stunning and one-of-a-kind. To inspire you to work with this old classic, we've scoured Instagram for the best pegs we could find! Check them out below: 

Keep black from looking too stark by cutting it with a textured material like wood or bricks. Aside from breaking the color, it also adds depth to the space which makes it more interesting to look at. Accessorize with other neutral tones to keep the look balanced.

If painting your walls black is a little too daunting for your liking, you can go with dark decor pieces instead! Who knew woven bins can look even more chic when painted ebony? You can also add pastel paper flowers for a feminine touch.

Black can instantly make any space ten times more glamorous and luxurious! In this living space, there aren't a lot of decor pieces used but it still looks well put together. Not to mention, this sable hue goes well with other jewel tones like moss green and deep plums (as seen in photo.) 

It pairs well with metallics, too! Don't be afraid to mix it up with gold, rose gold or even silver to give your home a unique modern edge. 

How pretty is this octopus ink-toned bath? It won't be hard to doze off while soaking in a hot tub and being surrounded by green wonders and this calming hue.
