Step into these bedrooms for a peek at the different ways that black can highlight a room.  An all-black palette needs depth and this is added with texture and varying shades of black.  Black walls can dress up a bedroom and make the walls recede, which opens up the space visually.  Adding creamy linens with splashes of warm colors make this room inviting.  Add glamour and sophistication with animal print accents, damask wallpaper and mirrored furniture.

A dark color palette creates drama and impact in a space.  Furniture and textiles become the focus of the room.  Traditional spaces call for dramatic features, such as crystal chandeliers and gilded accessories.  Pattern plays well against dark walls and gives the space interest and depth.
