If I’ve learned anything from watching Queer Eye or any other make over show, it’s that playing around with color schemes is very fun and has a big pay off. Black and white is probably the most classic yet the most impactful color combination there is.
Black and white color combinations can be classic, it brings drama, it can be fun, it can be unusual, it can help make a room feel bigger or smaller, it can make a room feel expensive and luxurious or it can make a room feel cozy and minimal.
This versatile theme deserves some attention, and so we’ve prepared this wonderful gallery of gorgeous bedrooms with black & white color themes. Hopefully this will bring you inspiration along all of your future bedroom renovations and updates!
1. The Perfect Primary King Size Bedroom
We’re starting off this collection very strong with this city style bedroom featuring a black and white them throughout the entire space. Clearly the person living in this room is truly dedicated to having a good sleep, otherwise they wouldn’t have a bed wider than it is long!
Black features are doing some grounding work here, with a plush looking black duvet and match leather headboard, which guides you directly to the black tiling above the bed, bringing the same pattern throughout.
White vaulted ceilings help make the room feel larger, while having sheer white curtains adorning the large windows helps make things still have an element of lightness. The white is brought through to the otherwise with that gorgeous orchid on the nighstand. This beautiful room is brought to you by Mudrogelenko.
2. The Extravagant Brownstone Primary Bedroom
Now I don’t know anything about the rest of this home, but I can imagine a few things about it. There’s always freshly squeezed orange juice in the fridge, there’s a courtyard in the back with lilac bushes, this bedroom is on the fourth floor, and all of the other rooms are just as gorgeous as this one.
Though there are different accent colors here, black and white combos are doing wonders for creating depth and dimension. We see black elements featured as foundational, and white elements that are used to contrast against these.
This room feels wonderfully plush with a huge bed, a padded headboard, a gorgeous accent chair with fuzzy throw blanket, all coupled with more classic and refined bedroom furniture. Not to mention the most stunning bay window I’ve ever seen! This beautiful home design is courtesy of TopTenRealEstateDeals.com
3. The Cinema Moderne Primary Black & White Bathroom
This is one of the more unique rooms that I’ve ever seen. I was just saying the other day that you can really tell someone doesn’t have an issue with space when their bed is directly in the centre of the room, and clearly this home is not concerned about space saving, though they do seem interested since the desk is incorporated right into the bed frame. So cool!
Here we have an example of a super minimal yet super funky use of black and white. Kitschy shelving built right into the wall brings the funk, with this custom bed frame overlooking an incredible view through the perfect bay window.
Darker shades in such a light room feel necessary in case you ever need to take a mid afternoon nap, and warm hardwood flooring ensures that things never feel too sterile. This perfect bedroom design is brought to you by PplusP Designers.
4. The Gothic Primary Bedroom
Now I don’t particularly love the decor in this room, but I think that effect that this particular use of black and white has is worth sharing, as it’s something rather dramatic and something that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.
This room is using super dark elements everywhere but the bed and the ceiling. This creates a very dramatic effect, though the bed is always the centre of the room, it’s almost like the bed is acting as a halo with a dark perimeter.
The dark features are simply gorgeous and rich, especially ensuring that the window framing, curtains, and trim all keep the image going. I’m just thinking about how satisfying it would have been to paint this bedroom! This super neat design is thanks to Trulia.
5. The Minimally Cozy Primary Bedroom
Here we have a perfectly example of a bedroom that is incredibly minimal but incredibly cozy at the same time. I think that we have very cleverly placed lighting to thank for that that keeps all of the perimeter elements of the room in the dark, and elevates the comfiest part of the space: the bed, of course.
Though black and white are usually very contrasting and striking shades, it’s possible to tone them down a little bit by using things like softer, warmer colored lighting, and by incorporating more neutral colors like we see here.
We see a bedroom that is elegant and refined, minimal and comfortable, and a room does the most important thing that a room could and should always do: it’s inviting. This beautiful space is brought to us by FORMA Design.
6. The Pivoting Primary Bedroom
I believe that this room was a great addition for this collection not only because of how the black and white them is working, but also because of the super interesting shape this room has. It’s not something that you see every day!
Having an oddly shaped room can be intimidating when it comes to interior decorating, but in this case the designer decided that the beds would be the focal point of the space. Using black as the base helps make the beds feel elevated, indicating that this room is just for resting.
The super interesting centre brick pillar acts as a pivot point where the rooms grow from, guiding you towards and neat little office that’s sitting off from the primary bedroom. This design is courtesy of the folks over at FORMA Design.
7. The Gorgeous Gorgeous Primary Bedroom
There is not a single element of this room that I don’t love. Though it looks very minimal, there are actually a lot of different things working together to create something that is absolutely stunning, simple, and a little bit sultry if I’m being honest.
The exposed brick wall is rustic and warm, the black hardwood flooring is sleek and elegant, the linen adorned bed with a white bed frame is chic and comfortable, and the interesting shelving/lighting combo all over the wall is funky and beautiful. This gorgeous design is from KUBE Architecture.
8. The Rustic Getaway Primary Bedroom
There’s just something very charming about this bedroom. I love it when a designer isn’t afraid to play with colors, textures, and patterns, and we see that all over the place with this gorgeous space. Anyone would be happy living in this room, don’t you think?
If you focus on the foundation of this room, we have very classic elements with the rustic wood flooring, the gorgeous vaulted ceilings, and the painted exposed beam walls. What could have been rather industrial, has been made cozy and chic by using a gorgeously textured rug, repurposed barn doors as a headboard, and super fun tiling around the fireplace.
If it weren’t for the gorgeous outdoor area set off of the bedroom is may feel a little bit too much to use all of those textures and patterns, but the perfect and open sliding door area extends the room to the outside, completely balancing out all of the boldness on the inside. This fantastic design is from TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
9. The Long Room
There are nothing but gorgeous elements in this bedroom, I hardly know where to start! Firstly, I adore how this space is big enough to have a sleeping area, a sitting area, and some floor space to do yoga or whatever else you like to use floor space for!
We see gorgeous but simple pieces of furniture here with a linen sectional and lower bed frame, which itself is garnished with two classic bedside cabinets.
It’s once you start looking at the foundation of the room that things get really impressive. Clay walls bring us gorgeous rounded windows, while exposed wooden beams on the ceiling are rustic and grand. The drama is brought to us by the almost cow-print prints on the walls, and this entire design is brought to us by Trulia.
10. The Textured Black & White Primary Bedroom
This bedroom design is strikingly similar to the first one in the collection, but you can see that is has a super different effect and purpose. I simple adore all of the uses of texture here found in the bed spread, the fabric bed frame, and the woodwork on the back wall.
Here, black is acting very grounding around the bed area while white walls and sheer white curtains help lighten everything up. Rustic hardwood flooring brings an element of warmth that is always welcome when using black and white, keeping it from looking sterile. This beautiful area is thanks to Sergey Makhno Architects.
11. The Oceanside Primary Bedroom
I think I gasped a bit when I first saw this bedroom design. This is an incredible photo showcasing the bedroom from the expansive front porch, while the reflection in the giant windows give us a tender glimpse of the incredible view from the other side.
This is an example of a bedroom that is letting the view be the centrepiece of the space. Here we have a bedroom/bathroom combination with mainly white features found in the floor, bathtub, and walls, while black elements bring a feel of elegance.
I adore how this bedroom is wider than it is tall. While usually you want to go for a higher ceiling, I think that the main goal of this room is to sweep you out the door, towards that incredible ocean blue. This simply stunning design is from Carles Faus Arquitectura.
12. The Stunning Bachelor Studio
Let me start off by saying that I will very happily date whoever lives in this room. There is something so incredible sexy about how minimal it is, how much wood is featured in the space, and how well everything is placed. An ergonomic dream!
Super high ceilings leave room for incredible large windows that are lined with sheer white curtains. Wooden elements in the low, Japanese style bed frame and floor are grounding and warm, while black shelving and window framing add the contrast and solidity of line.
There is something spectacular about the fact that there’s also a bath tub set in this bedroom, even furthering my desire to date and eventually marry whoever lives here. Wherever you are, I’m ready! This gorgeous design is from VILABLANCH.
13. The Primary Den
I know that a den usually refers to a small and cozy seating area in the home, but I found that this one really just makes me feel like it’s a den. Tucked away, cozy, all to itself (which we know for the fact that there’s a staircase leading you down to this little den!)
This is a wonderfully simple room featuring a plush black carpet, black sheer curtains, and black bedding that is lightened up simply by lights and warmed up simply by features of wood. This design is courtesy of ALL in STUDIO LTD.
14. The Neutral Primary Bedroom
Oh gosh,t here is something just so serene and stunning about this room. I usually don’t like it when rooms only have darker toned elements to them, but there is something very grounding and luxurious about this space, especially considering how many huge windows there are!
Vertical elements found in the wall adornments, tall curtains and foundational pillar all make the room feel very grand, while black tiling is grounding and elegant. I think the bedding is just so essential to the feel of this room and the whole vibe would be different if the bedding was different!
I find that one of the most special things that you can do for a room is to have an element of outside on the inside, and a view like that makes you feel like there’s a tender oasis waiting right outside your door, because there is! This beautiful design is from Chain10 Architecture & Interior Design Institute.
15. The Simplicity Primary Bedroom
There isn’t a whole lot going on in this room, but I can safely say that I would be completely happy waking up to this room for the rest of my whole darn life! You don’t need many dramatic elements when you have a view like that, the window does all of the work for you!
Here we have white walls, black floors, and black window framing for contrast, with super simple lighting to bring some warmth. That’s literally it. That’s all. But it still manages to be cozy, clean, and fantastic. This design is from Cantero Architecture, and I am here for it!
