Pair black with clean,crisp white trim. This will ensure the space still feels open and timeless. The best colours to do so are Benjamin Moore's Twilight Zone 2127-10 paired with Chantilly Lace OC-65.
Make sure to include warm earthy elements when working with black for example woods, or stones. These elements ensure the room has dimension and depth and doesn't seem too dim or unwelcoming.

Lastly add a little glamour and sparkle. Reflective elements like mirrors, chandeliers, crystals or shiny decor will make sure that the dark colour of the walls doesn't overwhelm the space. These touches of shine also elevate the room and make it stand out for entertaining.
Black walls don't have to be scary but can be elegant and sophisticated. This modern, art deco vibe is right on trend and can easily be achieved to elevate your dining room right now.
