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.

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……

Be Well,

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
