Inspired by: Deepest Black

Black is a daring design choice, and one that you need not fear. Black can add refinement, create a peaceful atmosphere and contrast perfectly with just about every other color on the wheel. And forget the stereotype that dark colors make a room look smaller! Black doesn’t stop the eye; instead it creates a feeling of lasting space.

For example, black and light wood tones are a perfect match. Add a few touches of gold, and the look is complete.

Black works for those who prefer traditional looks, too. Just take toile, mix in some checkerboard and marble, and you have the perfect recipe.

Do you prefer a little drama in your life? All you need is a few, strategically-chosen accessories to create a powerful pop of contrast.

The bedroom is the perfect place to let black take over because it creates a perfect space for sleep.
