Jeannie Mai Jenkin’s Black Accent Wall Makes Everything Pop
In the clip, Mai Jenkins can be seen at a countertop eating food with her mother, and the pair split a paper towel in half (a great tip that’s eco-friendly and saves money) as a voice over says: “Tell me you’re Mama Mai’s daughter without telling me you’re Mama Mai’s daughter.” And behind the mother-daughter duo is the standout living space, largely due to the black wall.
Incorporating a black wall or two into your home may seem scary, but this classic hue is a simple yet striking way to keep your space looking sleek. Mai Jenkins’ dark wall allows the rest of the room to pop, contrasting against the all-white shelving, cabinetry, and fireplace.
Whether it’s a black feature wall, like Mai Jenkins’, or an all-black room, traditional black living spaces are timeless. Just like black clothing, this classic color will remain relevant for years to come, so a decade down the line, your space will be as trendy as ever.
If you’re not ready to commit, try temporary peel and stick wallpaper can give professional-looking results for a fraction of the price. Easy to apply and switch out, it’s the ideal way to test out a darker wall, and the options are endless. A solid black peel and stick paper will keep things looking sleek, while a marble-patterned wallpaper will add depth and style to any room. Or, if you’re feeling particularly bold, a botanical print stick-on wallpaper will do the trick.
