Hi everyone and Happy Summer!!
This is Megan from Megan Campbell Designs back to bring you another addition of the Color Files!!
We have talked about:
and this past month I brought you a post about Art for the Non Artist!!
This month we are going really bold and we are going to be talking about the color BLACK!!
Black Inspiration for Your Home
The color black relates to the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, and as a result it creates an air of mystery. It is dramatic……very dramatic.
Take a look at these black kitchens…..

What do you guys think of this dramatic look in the kitchen??
I personally think a small powder room or bathroom is the perfect place to try something really dramatic and dark like the color black.
This bathroom above is my favorite. I love the bring accents, like the beautiful light fixture against the dark walls.
Wallpaper also comes in some awesome Black patterns.

If painting or wallpapering the walls is TOO dramatic…then again you can always use black accessories.
Zig Zag Pillow from Furbish Studios
or this fun cross pillow from Etsy
Or what about all of the awesome Black Light Fixtures I have been seeing everywhere…..
Both fixtures via my favorite local store School House Electric
What other places have you guys been seeing Black? In Bedrooms?? Accessories? Bathroom??
Is Black too dramatic or do you love the dark backdrop?
I am so honored to be sharing such beautiful spaces and objects with you guys. Design really does not have any limits and I think the use of black shows us that!!
Until Next month……
Craving more black?
Try on one of our favorite black paint colors
or design a modern nursery in black and white!
I personally LOVE the dark backdrop… so glamorous!!
Thanks Jenna!! I love the dramatic look of black also!! Happy Friday!!
Pity we can’t find such nice wallpaper in France…BTW, it’s funny you did this post, I have just finished painting my furniture in black for the entrance and it gives it a very chic look!
I’m digging the black doors (interior) that more people are using. Very dramatic, especially the front door. It really makes a statement in the entry.
I absolutely LOVE black walls. They are a favorite of mine. Everything looks good against it:)
