black beauty

Black is a powerful color -- even tiny touches of it can completely transform a room and add much needed weight and drama. I especially love  the way it stands out when mixed with rich creams, sophisticated metallics and subtle pastels.

I've never been bold enough to add black (or many dark colors, for that matter) to a room. I love the idea of a chalkboard wall though-- and that picture of the library/sitting room with the peonies makes me realize that black can bring elegance to a space. Maybe I'll grow a pair and just try it...

Black is fabulous! It somehow sharpens otherwise soft interiors.

I love black and that colour scheme with the gold and pastel pink is stunning. That dining room is one of my favourites :)

Those bookshelves are so striking with a black background. Love that look.

I always think a room is stronger design wise if it has at least a little touch of black. It grounds a room! LOVE your images!

So happy to have found your blog, its so fun! Following along now :-)

That shelving piece with the black in the back is amazing. Looks so chic.

I love the use of the solid colored paint strips! If colors work in a necklace, they are sure to work in a room! Color Blocking is such a transferable beauty - from makeup to clothing to interior design! Perfection.

I know black nd white generally to be very natural colours but in a room? I guess I just have to try it someday 2be convinced. You're a professional interior designer, aren't u, Blair?

Love black. I just painted my bathroom black. Congrats on the One Kings Lane feature. I don't know how I haven't come across your blog? I'm in the Chicago area and we have a lot of the same blog friends (faves).
