We've been coveting every black wall we've seen lately (we have plans to decorate our boyfriend's new apartment and there will definitely be a black wall or two). This group of pictures shows how insmika uses a black accent wall to make the space feel modern and classy but then mixes it up by using chalk to create a flirty and fun atmosphere. When you're done with the chalkboard aspect of the wall and want a more "grown-up" vibe--just wash the chalk off. This is a great example of how you can make a black wall function in a variety of ways so your space can change with your mood.

What are some easy ways you mix it up in your apartment?
