a touch of black in the entry foyer marble floor

Happy Monday, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend. Today, we are channeling fall (even though it was 93 degrees yesterday) and celebrating a touch of black

Nothing grounds a room and creates chic contrast quite like the right amount of black.

From black cabinetry, molding and trim contrasted with white furnishings, 


a touch of black in steel doors

To black-lined cabinets that add a hint of the hue,

One Kings Lane


To stunning neutral spaces with just a touch of the color that every single room must have a hint of, a touch of black is one our favorite ways to create instant style in a home.

A grand piano might the ultimate, of course–especially if you can actually play it–

Serena & Lily


But something unexpected like these ceiling details is equally as incredible.

To a lovely canopy bed (and floors!),


a touch of black screen door on porch


To a charming screen door, every space is better with a touch of black! Do you agree that every room needs a bit of this favorite shade?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.
