Matte Black Finishes - Mackenzie & Company Musings

Apr 18, 2018

Black is the new black.

Ok—let us elaborate ☺ As much as we adore bright + white spaces, lately we've been crushing hard on matte black, and as a result, we've been incorporating these dark finishes into many of our designs. 

Although black details have been making a comeback over the past couple of years...we're feeling this trend now more than ever. 

The matte black look is so versatile & always classic—chances are you will not get tired of this look if you choose to bring it into your home...and there are so many ways to do so.

From kitchens, to bathrooms, to bedrooms, here's a roundup of our favorite spaces that demonstrate the noir palette trend really beautifully...

Matte black brings a unique sophistication into a design, and with the absence of shine it kicks the drama up a notch...in the best way.

Head-over-heels for the way this matte black kitchen hood blends in with the cabinetry...it remains the focal point without looking too abrupt. And the white subway tile backsplash—a forever fave

We have a soft spot for black & gold designs, and the attention to detail in this black & gold modern mountain home kitchen by Studio Mcgee is something else...luxe, bold and inviting all at once.

We're having a moment for the subtle matte black details in this space—especially loving the way they contrast with the brick flooring & like-colored antique rug.

A bathroom with matte black hardware is bold, yet also subtle and sophisticated with the right mix of materials.

We love how this ceiling-height black casing frames out the heavenly walk-in shower.
