For minimalists who like the chic, eternally elegant look of basic black décor, decorating your home in a series of ebony hues just may complete your space. Whether you’re hoping to decorate with dark woods or coal-hued furnishings, try drawing your design inspiration from the timeless simplicity of the little black dress. Just in time for cooler temperatures, we’ve curated a few easy ways to decorate with basic black this season.

Turn to black wooden coffee tables and a decorative chandelier: If you’re aiming for a darkly sleek living room, try adorning your space with a black painted door and inky wooden coffee tables. To accessorize the basic black, turn to an ornate black chandelier, black wall art and gleaming hardwood floors.

Infuse your kitchen space with black and white hues: For a gorgeous neutral statement, turn to a combination of black and white in your kitchen or dining room. The look of a polished black wooden table, modern white seats and hanging black lamps instantly completes your interior design. Meanwhile, black and white accent walls and edgy black countertops can instantly wrap up your space.

Bring basic black bedding into your bedroom: You may be used to airy white hues in your chamber, but bedroom décor receives an immediate boost in the form of black throw blankets and sheets. Contrast the darker hues with fluffy white pillows, ivory painted walls and a woven wicker basket.
