UNEXPECTED BLACK

Black is one of my favorite colors (one look at my closet says it all...) and I love finding it used in unexpected places: a bathtub, a cluster of vases, a fireplace mantle.



A touch of mystery and sophistication always has a way with my heart.

Gorgeous, I love a deep shiny black paint -- it makes everything look more luxurious!

I once read that every room should have a touch of black - and I so agree! It gives a touch of glamour and gravitas!

Ahhh Jenna Lyons whole house is crazy beautiful.. her bathroom just might be my fave room of all though! And that mirror and lacy number draped seductively on the edge is pretty increds..
(and I too have a black-filled closet, it's always the answer!)

wish I could have come and played at Lavish with you ladies!

The tub is stunning - I love it! And the mirror is beautiful... Thank you for sharing! (my closet says it all too - will I wear black today, or... black?!)

Hi Crystal. Love the romantic girlieness of the last shot with black accents keeping it from becoming too soft.

And only one way that bathroom could be improved upon...add the beautiful Jenna Lyons and babe. Check today's post on my blog for the image :)

All of these accessories are to die for, especially the tub. Black is such a nice accent against all of those creams and whites!

Never really thought about designing with black. So weird because black is definitely a fave of mine. Obsessed with the black claw foot tub and might have to start a search to find one of my very own ;) As always, thanks for the inspiration, Crystal! Xox, B.
