Lovely Monday Inspiration: Black, White & Gold

August 29, 2011

I love light and brightness, but black grounds a room. It can be easy to think of black as oppressive, I think. But besides being classic, it is also very cozy to me. It can give you a feeling of being enveloped when used in large amounts or just punctuate a room and underline its brightness as an accent. Gold and/or wood elements work great in black and white rooms to add warmth.

    When I live in a place I can paint, the first thing I’m painting is a chalkboard wall.
