Touch of Black

There's an old adage among interior designers that every room needs a bit of black to finish it up since black is a grounding color.  Every room in my house has something black in it – whether it is a piece of furniture…

…or an accent piece.

If your own home feels like it needs a finishing touch, trying adding a bit of black. You could try:

  • painting the baseboard molding or interior doors black
  • painting a black chalkboard wall in the kitchen or office
  • adding a black credenza, bookcase or dresser
  • adding black showstopper pieces (a vase, large frame, etc).

Anyone else out there have black in every room?
