Black and White

May 17, 2012

I am a big fan of House Beautiful and in the May issue they have a section on 100 tips from 100 designers.  Lots of good tips, but one that stood out for me was the advice that every room should have a black accent as well as an antique.  I thought this was interesting advice.  I am a big fan of both and thought it was interesting to see what having each in a room does from a style perspective.  Finding examples was harder than I thought it would be, but there is what I found.

Loved the wire frame bed with the antique truck…great example of mixing accents.


This is nice example of using black and antique in the same piece! Nice affect.


Less antique accents in this room, but I am a fan of the black coffee table.

Love, love, love the lampshade in this room.



Lots of black in this room, but it’s really gorgeous.
