If you’re hankering for a change of decor yourself, perhaps you’d like to make a bold move and add a stylish hint of black to your bedroom? To assist you with some ideas, we have come up with some handy tips for how to style black bedroom furniture, so you can create the sleeping quarters you’ve always dreamed of. Read on to learn more.

How to decorate a bedroom with black furniture

 1. Off-set your black bedroom furniture set with some pretty pastels

If you are worrying that all-black decor might be a bit too gothic for your liking, you may be wondering how to decorate a room with black furniture while minimising this effect. Arguably, the best way to warm up your dark furnishings is with a backdrop of soft pastel tones. Not only will these brighten up your black bedroom furniture, but they will also add a chic, romantic feel to the space – the perfect ambience for your bedroom.

Pieces such as our black Brooklyn double wardrobe will look decidedly sleek against a backdrop of cream or magnolia paint – or perhaps even a dreamy baby blue wallpaper. Cushions and rugs in soft pastel hues are another clever way of softening black furniture. Meanwhile, colourful plant pots with roses in hues of pink and white will take the edge off any darkness, as would some floral prints adorning the walls.

However, if you are still fretting about a potential overdose of decorative melodrama, never fear. At, we also offer alternative options, such as our Tetbury storage unit. With its natural wicker drawers off-setting the sleek black wood frame, this piece of furniture is an alluring blend of rusticity and style.

2. Go for the classic combo of black and white

We all know how the contrasting shades of black and white go perfectly together. So, it goes without saying that pairing your black bedroom furniture set with white paint or other alabaster accessories, is bound to result in a boudoir that oozes monochrome charm.

For example, pairing our Brooklyn black chest of drawers or a black TV unit with light-reflecting paint and white bed linens will result in an elegant space that still manages to radiate light and feel bright. White rugs, bed frames, table lamps and dressing tables will also help to bring that effortlessly stylish black-and-white look to fruition. 

3. Throw in some dashes of bold colour

For those of you who prefer bold hues that are guaranteed to jazz up any space, we recommend brightening up your black bedroom furniture set with some pops of vibrant colour. Crown our black Brooklyn bedside table with a bejewelled Moroccan lamp and a lushly flowering plant in a colourful ceramic pot. Strew your bed with cushions in the most vibrant shades of red, pink or yellow, and liven up your boudoir with colourful curtains with striking patterns.
