black + blue {office} luxury

I have had quite the fascination with black spaces lately, which has taken me quite by surprise. I am drawn to the elegance and impact of black and the lovely backdrop it creates for color. This home office designed by Amy Morris for the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles showhouse is one of my favorite examples of how lovely it can be. The mixture of the black with navy blue adds a lovely element of depth and the gold touches lighten up the overall feel of the room.

And the faded rug softens the black walls beautifully.

The geometry of the shelf is just divine (I have to have it) and the studding of the sofa is just such a wonderful detail.

Ahhh, just a beautifully designed space and in an office none the less!

Sensationally seductive! The black is cleverly balanced with the hits of gold and the lovely variations of blues creates a great depth across the space. A really, really beautiful office.

It is really really gorgeous. Love the black, the rug, the shelves, but those hooded chairs kinda creep me out.

black is great! makes for a really good background/canvas for adding brighter, bold colors and prints to the room.

The acrylic table does wonders for keeping the room feel light. Used in the right environment it can look really chic.
