Glamorous High Gloss Black Rooms

These rooms prove that when it comes to painting a room black go high gloss for drama.  The three rooms shown here have traditional architectural details but a few coats of glossy black paint takes the rooms from expected to interesting. Of course, painting your wainscoting or bookshelves black is not for the feint of heart – it takes a bit of design confidence. However, if these pictures don’t encourage you to “go for it” nothing will!



A beautiful crystal chandelier and mirrored ceiling detail really amps up the glam level in this dining room. This room is magical at night when the mirrored ceiling reflects the chandelier and the table’s candle light.

Entryways and foyers are great areas for dramatic decorating since you don’t spend much time in them. The flat paneled wainscoting in this entryway is classic but the glossy black paint adds an unexpected touch.

This library is a  cozy spot where you would be  happy to spend some time catching up on work from the office.  The graphic rug and a dramatic photograph keep the space feeling current.
