Black Window Treatments Can Be Neutral With Dramatic Accent
Black is often used as a neutral color in decorating but unlike most neutrals, it can be a dramatic accent. Black works well with traditional, contemporary, and Mediterranean/Old World style rooms. Black is especially gorgeous in dining rooms, living rooms, and entry ways.
Black Window Treatments in the Dining Room
Heritage Diamond Select Shutters are stunning in a Mediterranean style dining room when custom stained a deep black. Paint the walls of your dining room a warm terra cotta color and the black shutters combine with the color to provide a rich look and feel.
Hunter Douglas Nantucket Window Shades in black look incredible in a contemporary living room. The black color of the shades adds to the sleek modern look of the room and adds a sophisticated flair. Black is also a wonderful contrast when you decorate with bright colors and upholstery in lime green or lemon yellow. The neutrality of the black keeps the color from being overwhelming and keeps your room cheerful but not juvenile.
Since colonial times (and even earlier), black has been a traditional color for front doors and shutters. The look remains a classic. Heritage Diamond Select Shutters and The Louver Shop’s Louverwood Shutters can be stained a deep black for a gorgeous entry way to almost any type of home be it traditional, transitional, modern, or even eclectic.
