Design Elements {Black & White Skulls}


Are you looking for an edgy detail for your next design project? Black and white skull prints might be just what you’re looking for. I’ve put together a great collection of ‘skull print’ inspiration to help you on your way. Fabrics, wallpaper, throw pillows, ceramic plates, you name it. There are lots of possibilities for you to consider. Let’s start with a fantastic design example of what you can do with this fun design element. I absolutely love the design of this styling salon. Just the kind of place I would like to hang out in for hours. Which is sometimes what it takes to manage my unruly hair. The black skull wallpaper accent wall is awesome!

These black and white skull plate patterns would make a great table setting for your Halloween or Day of the Dead celebrations…

Unfortunately, this skull print upholstered chair is no longer available but I had to show it as an example of what can be done with this fun print. You can always reupholster your own chair with a similar fabric if you have to have this look.

A couple more skull patterns to take in…

A detail shot of the Grateful Head Salon. Their logo is shown on the black bag hanging on the wall. So cool!

Maybe you’d prefer a couple throw pillows for your sofa?

Here’s a closeup of a black skull wallpaper from Graham and Brown. It’s the perfect mix of subtle with edgy, don’t you think?

Maybe a white background fabric to soften the look? Or, dark and moody?

Here’s an overall view of the Grateful Head Salon. You can see the black skull wallpaper accent wall in the back. Nice, subtle detail.

Or, maybe you would prefer to wear this design element with these scarves from Alexander McQueen…

So, what do you think of the use of black and white skull prints in interior design? Would you use this edgy design element in one of your designs?
