Color Me Happy; Back in Black!

This is the beginning of a new series on FOW focused on all things color. Color combos, colors I love, color trends, and colorful rooms!

After seeing this home tour on Bright Bazaar, I was totally inspired by decorating heavily with black. For some reason it feels so fresh all of the sudden. Black certainly gives a mood and certain weight to a room that is unrivaled  by any other color. When paired with small doses of a bright color, perfection!

Maybe just large pieces of furniture will ease you in?

Not ready to take the plunge? Maybe just some black trim will help you get your toes wet!

Black Mantle? Um yes!

A black little girl's room, would you dare? When I was younger I wanted everything pink. I had pink carpeting, pink bedding, pink canopy bed. Hey, at least I knew what I wanted!

What do you have in your house that's black? Would you paint a whole room?

I couldn't agree more with this, love to see some black pieces in a room, and while I would never have the guts a whole black room is pretty amazing too when done just right!

I would paint a little girl's room black. It would pair it with a mizture of pink, purple and cream lace accents. Okay, maybe I would want that for my room... not a little girls room. Lol!

I love black walls, and this is an amazing round up!! I am going to have to book mark it. Thanks for the inspiration.

I agree with you completely. I have been feeling like i just want to paint everything black lately. It can be so glam!
