Country black decor: accents and accessories to transform a room

If you think of black decor as dark and depressing, we’re here to change your mind! The country home decor universe is full of charming black accents and accessories that add depth and contrast to the decor around it.

The Spruce suggests thinking of a black room as you would a little black dress: “It’s a great foundation but you need accessories to give it life. Plan your room as you would an outfit. And HGTV says decorating with black is authoritative and dramatic.

But don’t be intimidated! Black decor is actually a really easy color to coordinate– you can easily mix and match prints to make a bold statement without overwhelming the eye.

Tips for decorating with black: 

  • Use an accent piece to add contrast.
  • Iron accents can add a sense of ruggedness.
  • Black accents to contrast with, and soften the impact of brighter colors.
  • Many people think of black as a modern decor color, but the color can work just as well in a cozy, country cabin as a metropolitan townhouse.
  • Mix it with cream and earth tones for a cozier look, or with bright florals to liven things up.
