The Black List: Best Picks for the Hottest Home Decor Color Right Now

LBD stands for “little black desk,” right?

By Angela Law

In the world of home decor, black is back — and I am obsessed. I see a red door and all I want to do is paint it black. I’ve become a total black-magic woman. And, luckily for me, there is no shortage of black home decor pieces for me to choose from. Trust me, I went down a giant black hole picking out the best black home decor pieces on the market.

The best part is, there are no rules about how to decorate with black. It works as a good base color. It works as a stunning accent color. The color black is clear and precise. Add a glossy top coat or resin and it becomes a great reflector. Contrary to the misconception that its darkness makes it moody, dominating, or boring, black can actually be a great supporting character — lending definition and light to a room.
