Fashion has always enjoyed a longstanding love affair with black. From the essential little black dress in every woman’s wardrobe to everyday basics for mixing and matching. Black is slimming, classy, and most importantly, always InVogue.
In modern design, black has transcended from the catwalk to construction with black accents increasingly popping up in new home building, being executed in a variety of ways.
Black can be used to make a statement or to define a space within an open planned area such as the dining room. One black wall offset by a beautiful piece of artwork and a stunning lighting feature can bring a room together in an effortlessly elegant way. If you’re intimidated by the thought of a bold black wall in a high traffic area of your new home, you could test the waters within a smaller area, such as the home office or study as on show in The Alpha Display Home.
A home theatre is another popular choice for black walls as a darker hue with a matte finish will help to reduce screen glare and deliver a superior cinematic experience. And for fun, you could introduce black chalkboard paint to children’s rooms or activity space where they can express themselves artistically!
Another look to love is black in a modern kitchen. And whether you’re all in with black cabinetry and benchtops as seen in The Astor Display Home, or a striking statement backsplash, shown below. Prefer a more subtle approach? You can soften the overall effect with natural products like timber benchtops and cabinetry, introducing black more delicately with handles, tapware, pendant lighting, and even kitchen stools. Whatever your style, black can be as bold or as subtle as you like, adding just a touch of contemporary drama.
Whether you’re conservatively classic, love the very latest, or a little bit vintage, black adapts to all styles – especially in the bathroom. From tile choice to tapware, to a centrepiece black freestanding bathtub there’s something for everyone with this trend.
The versatility of black means you can virtually include in any room of your home that you like. Black can be incorporated with a showpiece bedhead, soft furnishings such as rugs, cushions, throws – even sheer curtains for the master suite. And, you can soften any room with the addition of fresh green plants.

If you’ve ever found yourself in a home built in the 1970s or earlier, you’re likely to have discovered that each room is quite separate from the next. In past times, even kitchens were confined to one space, with about enough room for one person to be using at a time, whereas modern-day kitchens are […]
