Things We Love: Black Furniture

Lynn Morgan Design
A touch of black is a welcome addition to any room.
Windsor Smith Design
But, sometimes, if a bit of black is good, a bunch of black is better!
Kerrisdale Design Group
An accessory here or there is fine, but, every now and again, we love the bold statement of a black piece of furniture.
Kelly Wearstler Design
Paired with gold, the look is glamorous and chic.
Architectural Digest
Paired with red, it’s vivid and intense.
Decor Demon
And, of course, a little shine never hurts.
Vogue Living
The crisp pop of white accessories on a piece of black furniture is such a focal point.

Black and cane are the ideal combination.

A fabulous French desk is one of our favorite ways to incorporate black furniture into a design scheme. 
Christina Murphy Design
Black furniture is so chic with gorgeous grays.

Liz Caan Design

This is a dream closet. Being able to jot a note, or sit down to casually apply make-up at a fabulous black desk would be amazing!

Carrie Hayden Design
We adore how black grounds a space, pairing perfectly with vivid colors and vibrant patterns.
Brown Design 
Yellow is one of our favorite accent colors with black. It’s happy, fun and the perfect amount of contrast.

Happy Monday, everyone! We hope you have a wonderful week!

Friday Favorite: Gray and Brass

Studio Isle Design
It may not be the first duo that comes to mind, but gray and brass is a color combination that we’re loving lately.
Courtney Giles Interiors
Warmer than silver, and more subdued than gold, the right brass can add that metallic element to a room without feeling too flashy or overdone.
Warmington and North
As soon as the Beaufort house is done, Will and I are tackling a long-overdue remodel of our bedroom and bath. We haven’t had quite enough of paint samples and fabric swatches yet…
Munger Interiors
It was next on our “to-do” list when I got pregnant, and, as I’m overboard paranoid about fumes, dust (especially in an old house!), etc., we decided to put it off until Will was a little older — and we could escape to the beach for a couple of weeks until the dust cleared and the paint cured.
Hinkley Lighting
We’ve definitely decided on gray as the main color for both rooms, but the big point of contention is whether we want to change the brass shower door — and the bevy of body sprays, which, by the way, we never, ever use!
CocoCozy
We were all set to switch them for stainless, but seeing these fabulous rooms might just give us a change of heart!
pinterest
We don’t want to feel married to a metallic, so it’s nice to see in these rooms how people have mixed brass and stainless.
Kristen Panitch
Of course, when you find that amazing, “just-right” brass, there’s really no need to mix… We were also trying to find a clever way to get more light into our closets. This is fabulous!
Kelly Wearslter
What a gorgeous place to get a little work done.
AyA Kitchens and Bath
Another stainless and brass combo that looks good enough to eat! Do we think it would work in a bathroom?
Haute Design
This is really unbelievably fabulous. If this was our closet, we don’t think we’d ever leave!
Kelly Wearstler Design
Gray and brass has never looked so good…
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Thanks for visiting us today!

Tabletop Tuesday: Room For Children

Of all the rooms in a house to decorate, a nursery or child’s room can be both the most fun and the most difficult. Creating a room that looks like a child, but is mature enough to grow with them, is age-appropriate but still jives with the decor of the rest of your home and has furniture that is both usable and chic can be nothing short of exhausting. Sure, you could just order a pre-matched set from Pottery Barn Baby and call it a day, but what fun would that be? When it comes to designing a baby’s room that is both functional and fabulous, Susanna Salk walks the walk. In her book Room for Children: Stylish Spaces for Sleep and Play, Salk displays a bevy of photographs that are bound to inspire. Check out these beautiful examples of what’s inside.
