Dramatic black nurseries

"black baby rooms"

Would you ever consider a black baby nursery?  While I’m a big fan of black and white baby nurseries, I’ve never gone for using using black as the dominant colour.  But recently I’ve been coming across a few black nurseries and I’ve found myself really liking them.  There’s something very dramatic about the look.  For a black nursery to work, using  the right amount of black with other shades and tones is important otherwise the room can look too dark and dingy especially if it’s a small room.  It’s probably not a look for everyone but for me, when done well, black can be quite stunning and even calming.  Does it work for you?  Here are some of my favourite black nurseries to help you decide:

"dark walls in a nursery"

The natural wood colours compliment the black beautifully and soften the whole look.  Cute monochrome blankets, toys and decorations work well here because the white in them stands out so well against all the black.  (images via La petite)

Using a black wallpaper with hints of colour is a great way of adding a more subtle amount of black to a nursery.  You’ll still achieve the dramatic black look but in a more toned down way.  And here again the natural wood floors and cot add a lightness to the room as do the colourful decorations.

"black walls for a baby nursery"

In this room only one feature wall has been painted black while the rest of the walls and the floors are bright white.  Even with just one wall, the dominating colour is black and almost stands out more because of all the white surrounding it.  Some black furniture and various shades of gray complete the look of this modern black baby nursery.

"dark wall colours for nursery"

Instead of turning walls black, making the floor entirely black is another way to add a dramatic black look to a nursery.  This room looks light and bright but you still can’t miss the drama of the black floors.  And as all the decor in the room sticks to the monochrome colour scheme, it allows the black to dominate but doesn’t look oppressive.  (image via the designer pad)
