Although we still have a month to enjoy summer, at Decofilia we return from vacation with energy already facing autumn and we do so with a post dedicated to black wallpaper, a symbol of elegance, luxury and sophistication.

And is that unlike other fashions, the arrival of wallpapers to the world of design and interior decoration came to stay, thanks above all to its great versatility and the ease of completely turning the decoration of a room of fast, economical and powerful way.

As wallpapers there are for all tastes in this case we are going to focus on black wallpaper for many a color that has a certain respect for the belief that it adds darkness to the room but the truth is that well used is one of the most powerful effects of the entire range of styles and colors.


The black color in the interior creates a calm and carefree atmosphere emphasizes contrasts and can be refined in style. Many feel perfect in dark premises. They are comfortable and calm in a room with black walls.

Black is always very deep. Unfortunately in our country black color in the interior is rarely used. Many people know that solving a black wall is not difficult, and we often worry about experimenting. There is a stereotype that dark colors make a room visually closer. Yes, it really does, but it’s not black. Deep black creates a sense of endless space. It is also combined with the feeling of room depth.

The black wall is an important element in creating a gallery inside. A painting or photo gallery will look great in contrast with black. This is especially true for the design of gold baguettes and work in the frame. That’s why black walls are perfect for collectors and art lovers’ homes.

Black color in the interior is perfectly combined with any color. It can be bright torn colors or pastel shades. Black color can combine and harmonize with a large number of bright accessories. It looks great in soft pink, white, gold, red, turquoise and beige colors.

However, in most cases we will focus on a single wall that will become the focus of attention, because if we cover the entire room and the paper is very dark, it can eat up some light.


In these cases, the application of the wallpaper is usually on the wall behind the sofa . It is especially good when it is all light to contrast or when it is combined with golden details in part of the upholstery or cushions.


The main dining room wall will enhance the accompanying table, chairs and lamp. We can accompany it with a painting or mirror that will also be enhanced by the paper.

For its part, we can also cover the inside of the built-in wardrobes to give it a different touch and a finished feeling.


In corridors, the most common is to cover the back wall, since being a dark tone visually shortens the length of the corridor and brings it closer to the eye. However, it can also look good on a side wall when combined with a black piece on another wall.


In the bedrooms the classic is to use the paper on the wall of the headboard. Not only because it enhances the bed, but because sometimes, due to lack of space at the feet, the paper itself acts as a headboard without occupying an inch.

In the case of black wallpaper, those with classic or geometric patterns look especially good in this room.


In general and unless it is specifically prepared for it, wallpaper should not be placed in a bathroom with a shower that can generate steam and cause it to peel off.

However, it is ideal for courtesy toilets, and in the case of black wallpaper it is one of the few rooms that usually allow covering all the walls, since the contrast with the white toilets is spectacular.

However, if one does not dare with the entire bathroom, one can focus on a single area, usually the wall or surround of the sink.


The wall of the staircase is usually a headache when decorating, since it is a very large and empty surface that also closes diagonally, so paintings, mirrors or other decorative objects usually pose problems for the time to place them.

This is solved with the wallpaper, which fully dresses the staircase without the need to add anything else.


With regard to decorative styles there are black wallpapers for all tastes and it is very important to choose yours because the appearance that it will give to the room will totally change if you choose one reason or another given the large surface and presence of the wall where they are placed.


Scrolls, curves, floral motifs, spirals. Classic motifs are usually the ideal breeding ground for black wallpaper as a classic home is often associated with luxury and sophistication in which this type of paper moves like a fish in water.


An equally elegant but somewhat more modernized style is one that combines black and gold . Let us remember that this metal is now fully topical and its combination with black is not even painted (worth the redundancy.


For more informal and carefree personalities we have geometric motifs. Patterns that add a lot of dynamics to the wall, ideal for pairing with furniture in white, raw or light wood tones.


Another increasingly common option is to opt for wallpapers that mimic certain textures . Marble, leather, concrete, porcelain or brick are the most common materials, mainly because the alternative (application of the original material) is usually very expensive and problematic when facing the works.


A classic of black and white or black and gray both horizontal and vertical stripes have been used since we can remember. The vertical ones tend to visually “raise” the walls towards the ceiling and the horizontal ones to lower it, lengthening the sides.

In addition, today we can see alternative applications in striped papers, such as combinations of horizontal and vertical stripes or combinations of stripes with other styles, color stripes or complete coverings of a room.


The presence of flowers and animals in nature is common in recent times, mainly to add a touch of color to this tone. Small birds, elongated grasses or large peacocks populate some papers to give them a natural touch.


Slightly linked to the previous style but with somewhat different tints, the tropical style, based on the presence of large leafy plants and jungle fauna, has infected the very black color, finding papers that imitate the nature of the jungle regardless of its characteristic color green.
