Black blinds with white walls is a high-contrast solution that achieves a striking effect. It works, but the question is, will it work for you? This solution is very much a matter of individual taste, so before you go all-in, here are some considerations to keep in mind when thinking about the most compelling design with interior blinds: black blinds with white walls!
With strong design choices like black and white, the strength of the solution is in its absoluteness. This creates a potent statement of intent – this combination is not one to be missed. Because of this strength, the solution builds powerful relationships with other room elements, and also dictates those relationships. If you want to go for the black on white approach, here are some helpful ideas that can modify the delivery for a more integrated look and feel.
Black is Only One of Many Options
It all depends on what you’re trying to achieve, but sometimes, being subtle gets a better result. Rather than go with straight-up black blinds, slightly lighter colour variants can achieve integration with the room whilst still getting that dynamic effect. Here’s an example from a Lavish installation at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, where we’ve used coal-coloured blinds in this way.
Lighten the Load
Roller blinds are flat panels of colour which are always a great option for interior blinds, but if you’re looking for an integrated style, be sure to consider the texture of your blinds as well, or other types of blinds, such as panel glides, whose segmented delivery adds an appealing alternative aesthetic to flat black panels. This segmentation breaks up the delivery and creates relationships with other parts of the room.
Black & White: Functional Sophistication
In defence of black and white, the combination is tried and tested. This is a partnership that has, unlike many other many other colour combinations, stood the test of time. Black and white will always be an option in design and fashion, giving the solution longevity as well as guaranteed functional sophistication.
