Many interior designers recommend including one black element in every room, and this is an excellent example. The textured area rug uses a large black trellis pattern and fringe to ground the space without overwhelming the bright color palette. Notice how the warm-toned walls and curtains, as well as the rich hues of the pillow and floor, make the space feel inviting despite the black and white theme.
This bedroom uses a neutral palette of black, white, and grey (true neutrals) in addition to tan and dark brown (earthy neutrals) for a modern appeal. The black headboard and curtain rods add depth to the space, while the white bedding and light-toned walls brighten the look. The sheer white curtains also illuminate the room with a glow balanced by the play of light and dark throughout the rug. And don't forget the earthy neutral palette displayed in the throw pillow arrangement on the bed!
White helps make small spaces appear larger, as shown in this bedroom. Here, the main dose of black comes from the artwork on the wall above the bed. It's also found in the ornate rug, checkered throw blanket, mounted lamp, and tasseled pillow. Everything else is either white or tan, both of which are neutral, easy-to-decorate colors that help make smaller rooms feel bright and open.
With shaker panel walls and a metallic nightstand, this bedroom has serious glam appeal. It's an excellent example of how a tiny touch of black goes a long way. The only black here is the four-poster bed and the throw pillow, but the room looks perfectly balanced. You could achieve the same impact with a simple pair of runner rugs or nightstands. Just one or two black elements in a white space are all you need.

While black and white bedroom ideas usually feature modern looks, this rustic bedroom pulls off the style well. The black dresser and lamp ground the room with darker colors while the grey and white throughout the space keep things cheery. The wood bench, floor, bedframe, and nightstands add warmth, while the greenery in the vase and the art above the headboard keep things interesting. Capture this look by adding a large piece of black furniture to an otherwise light and neutral space.

Black walls have a moody appeal that can add elegance and charm to any room. In this bedroom, they contrast with the white ceiling and baseboards and the white and grey bedding. But it's the jewel-toned rug and throw pillow arrangement that brings life to the space and the metallic furniture and global-inspired style.

Modern farmhouse decor might not be the first thing that you think of when you consider black and white bedroom ideas, but it looks just right here. Adding a sheer black curtain panel to either side of the sheer white curtain panels over the window creates a contemporary appeal that updates this bedroom. Try a similar approach for a low-budget room redesign, adding sheer black and white curtain panels over your window on a black curtain rod. Or consider a tribal-inspired rug with black patterning, as we see here, for a more complete overhaul.

This modern bedroom features a light-toned floor with a small striped natural fiber rug at the foot of the bed. But it's the black and white dotted wall that brings the room to life with a whimsical appeal. And the small, dotted pattern on the pillows continues the look, making the design feel cohesive. This would make a great kid's room, but it'd also work well for an adult with limited space.
Black and white combinations lend to a classic style that's timeless and always aesthetically pleasing. In this bedroom, the black and gold bedframe match the black and wood-toned bench at the foot of the bed. The area rug includes both dark and light tones, balancing the space and grounding the furniture. And the hats on the wall, as well as the black and white photo, lend to the timeless appeal of this simple bedroom.
This bedroom is instantly inviting with a large, inviting bed layered with plenty of warm-toned, grey, and white fabrics. The black and white artwork on the walls adds to the appeal, but the black and white area rug sells it. Fun patterns like the one on this rug can elevate a bedroom from boring to exciting in moments.

This modern bedroom makes excellent use of black as an accent color, grounding the space and contrasting the rich wood tones on the floor and bed frame. In addition, the black appears in the throw pillows and nightstands, as well as a frame on the wall. Just these four touches of black are enough to make this space look more balanced and inviting without overwhelming the space. And the vining plant in the corner helps to soften the bright white of the walls.

A three-quarter black and white wall is an excellent option if you want the moody appeal of a black wall without committing to such a bold look. Adding paneling gives the look a simple elegance and makes the black portion appear more defined. Notice the light ivory color on the walls and how it contrasts with the bright white of the ceiling and molding. And don't forget the simple white linen bedding or the large, ornate rug beneath the bed.

Monochromatic color schemes with black and white include a spectrum of grey in addition to these two contrasting colors. Picking a monochromatic palette is a great way to simplify your decor while creating a mature and calming look. For example, this space uses black nightstands, warm white walls, and a charcoal grey bed frame. The ivory used for the basket and blanket at the foot of the bed warm the mood, while the white and grey area rug anchor the space.
Hanging a beautiful black and white painting or photo is a great way to set the mood in a black and white bedroom. And what better image than a full moon? With a grey bed frame and rug, in addition to grey walls and curtains, this bedroom needed more black elements to balance the look. We love the navy-blue pillows and black lamps on the nightstands as well. Notice how the warmth from the floor and the nightstands keep the look inviting, warm, and relaxing. Try hanging a black and white photo in your space for a quick dose of this moody color.
We hope these black and white bedroom ideas have helped you decide how to bring your vision to life. As you decorate your bedroom, remember to pick and choose your favorite ideas from each image until you create something you love. For example, you might use an area rug from one design with pillows and blankets from another and the overall theme of yet another image. Remember, there are no rules in interior design, only guidelines!
