Black-and-white walls – is it a good idea? 

Without a shadow of a doubt. A black-and-white mural will look amazing in a bright bedroom, living room or kitchen. Imagine a room with white floors, a simple bed with white bedsheets and furniture in the same colour. Wouldn’t this amount of white be a bit much? Not necessarily, especially if you place a contrasting element on one of the walls, e.g. a mural depicting delicate, black, stylised flowers. They look very realistic, as if they were trying to escape the image. It is definitely a head-turner piece that can complete the look of monochromatic interiors, making them look beautiful and stylish.

A mural with a clock might become a intriguing alternative to the real thing. A black-and-white mural will definitely look great in the kitchen and not just in a modern one. A pattern of small, black-and-white apples is works wonders as a decorative accent piece in industrial or modern kitchens. However, if used properly they can give a unique look to a rustic kitchen as well. Introduce a designer motif in the form of a black-and-white landscape into an austere kitchen to complete its décor. Black and white is also a brilliant colour scheme for the hallway, especially a narrow one. You can make the space appear much brighter, modern and visually larger with the help of a white wallpaper with subtle geometric or abstract patterns.
