I didn’t realize until just recently that I love using just a touch of black in rooms. I’m not referring to black walls or an all-black room, which is too big of a commitment for me personally. No, I’m referring to smaller accents that add just a bit of drama.
Black is classic and timeless and works with any style. It can be bold and make a statement, especially when used in larger amounts like the accent wall below….
…or when incorporated into a pattern. I love the floor on the foyer below and even though it’s bold, it’s offset by the white surrounding it.
Or black can be used in more subtle, classic ways, such as with a painted door.
Sometimes, a single piece of black furniture can bring a lot of impact without being overpowering. I love all of these beautiful buffets and cabinets!
If a large piece of furniture is too much for you, try something smaller, like a chair. Look at how this vintage chair has been updated with a modern look!
And black works in any room, whether a kitchen…
…bathroom (LOVE this tub!)
Sometimes, even the smallest amount of black can add a touch of elegance to a space, like these beautiful silhouette pillows.
I’ve been looking for a cabinet to use along my wall in the family room and have had my eye on this one from Restoration Hardware for a while. This black cabinet might be just the piece I’ve been looking for! I see a decorating project in my future!!
