Black living room furniture is often selected because people think any wall colors can go with it. In fact, you should be very careful to choose the wall paint for your living room when it has black furniture. It is really a challenging task. The safest option is to pain your wall in stark white.
This color contrasts with the color of the furniture. The combination of black and white looks very sophisticated for a modern living room. While the main furniture has black color, you can add some white pieces such as black and white art, rug, or throw pillows.
These small pieces will sweeten your living room. Minimize the use of other colors otherwise they will ruin the deep contrast and beautiful combination of the black and white. If you think black and white living room is too common, try cool grey walls.
As a combination of white and black, this color must be suitable to pair the black furniture. As all we know, gray has some tones. Not all tones go well with black furniture. To create a more contemporary feel, try a metal-inspired gray or slate grey. Other tones may clash with black like grays with purple or undertones. Thus, these tones should be avoided.
Black living room furniture paired with deep plum walls will make the living room livelier. In addition, this rich color generates a regal feeling to the room. Because deep plum is a rich color, sometimes people having a small living room are just afraid that deep plum walls will make their room even smaller.
If this is the case, the solution is to paint only one wall in deep plum while other walls are painted white. To sweeten the room, you can add floral accents such as purple blooms to the white walls.
You can also try rich red walls. Choose dark red instead of bright vibrant red. Bright and vivid red like the one in orange undertone will clash with the black. On the other hand reds with little darker crimson tone are very eye-pleasing when combined with black.
To reduce the effect of being too dark, add white rug, pillows, and artwork. The combination of white, red, and black looks very sophisticated. Water-inspired aqua wall paint also works for black living room furniture. Add a rug in the same color as the wall to bring in the liquid theme.
