Black Walls. Do you dare?

13 Jan

I have been totally into dark spaces recently. Usually I am all about bright and airy, but there is something totally fabulous about a black bedroom. I can totally understand why black walls can be scary and intimidating. But take a look at these cozy bedrooms with beautiful black walls that are proving this look is really sophisticated.

The black walls create a sophisticated warm feel. I think the key to doing black walls right is to choose a space that can get a lot of natural light to balance the dark walls and choose lighter accessories to not overwhelm the space. What do you think? Would you paint your walls black?

Trimming in Black

21 Apr

Good morning! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! For a long time now I have been obsessing over black molding. It is so bold and chic. The best way to frame a room is by painting the molding black. The contrast of black trim against white walls is so gorgeous! Check out these amazing spaces.

Color Obsession: Black, White, and Camel

10 Feb

Good morning! There are few color combinations that can stand the test of time like black, white, and camel. I love this neutral classic color palette. There is something sophisticated and calming about the combination of these 3 colors. Take a look.

High Impact Walls

4 Feb

Good morning! Today is going to be all about high impact. Bold pattern or color choices not only make big statements and infuse personality to a space, but can also make a smaller space seem more intentional vs. tucked away. I love the idea of one space using a bold patterned wallpaper or paint color. Take a look at what I mean.

Favorite Design Trends

29 Jan

Good morning! Better Homes and Gardens has pulled together some of their favorite design trends. I have pulled my favorites from that list (and added some of my own). I hope these trends don’t fade out any time soon.

black glossy door

Black Glossy Front Door: This is timeless. There is something so classic about a shiny black front door don’t you think?

flokati

Flokati: This shaggy wool material is perfect for accent pieces such as these stools. Also perfect for pillows and rugs!

painted furniture

Painted Furniture: It is so easy to transform an old piece of furniture with paint. I love adding a pop of color to a space.

statement lighting

Statement Lighting: Good lighting is essential to every space. You can find beautiful statement fixtures in every price range. I am loving these brass pieces.

wallpaperWallpaper: Gone are the days of Grandma’s wallpaper. Wallpaper is perfect for an accent wall or small space. No need to do all 4 walls. There are so many great modern colors and patterns.

warm graysWarm Grays: Warm grays are the perfect neutral alternative to beige or white.

wide stripesWide Stripes: This substantial pattern can easily be mixed with smaller scale patterns for a modern look.

What are some of your favorite design trends?
