Think of a black room as you would a little black dress. It's a great foundation but you need accessories to give it life. Plan your room as you would an outfit.
Inexpensive Alternative: DIY Art. Some art purists shudder at the thought, but DIY artwork can be a great way to add something personal to a space. You don't have to be a great artist, you just have to be creative. Consider framing some pieces of fabric or wallpaper, your kids artwork, or your own photographs.
If you're afraid of using just black and white, add variety by adding areas of yellow, pink, camel, red, or purple for a striking look. Keeping black and white prominent, however, preserves the elegant effect. How to Use Black and White in Your Home. A black and white floor is a good place to start decorating with black and white. The ultimate choice would be beautiful black marble set off with tall white baseboard moldings. Short of that, try white ceramic tiles with a black border, vinyl tiles laid in alternating black and white squares, or a painted black floor with white border stencils or white with black stencils.
Repurpose Thrift Store Items. Thrift store items have come a long way when it comes to people's perceptions. Second-hand stores are finally being appreciated as wonderful places to find unique and interesting items for your home - and a great find is something worth bragging about! Often it takes a little work on your part as many items require a little upcycling (new hardware, a fresh coat of paint, new upholstery, a little sanding and staining, etc.) but great thrift store finds can save you money and give your home tons of character.
