We’ve all heard the old adage: “Every room needs a touch of black”. It continues to be a staple among designer’s essential principles. Just like that “little black dress”, it is always classic, versatile and in style.
Black adds impact and drama, drawing attention wherever you place it. It works well anywhere in your home, from window frames and kitchen counters to furniture, artwork and accessories. Just remember that since black is striking and draws your eye to that element or shape, a little black can go a long way.
