A Touch of Black

My friend Marianne posted a gorgeous picture yesterday of a living room designed by Beth Webb that blew me away. I have seen pictures of her work on blogs and on Pinterest, but I never visited her website until yesterday. Something she said on the "Meet Beth" page of her site struck me. She said, "A room should never be without something black." 





I couldn't agree with her more. The pops of black work exceptionally well in these neutral spaces (all designed by Beth). Neutral spaces are my favorite, but everything tends to run together if everything is the same color. The eye doesn't have anywhere to land. The pops of black in these spaces provide a place for the eye to stop and stare. Perfection.

I'm looking around my neutral bedroom as I write this post and the only pop of black I see right now is the back of the TV remote. Pitiful. I must work on that...

  2. I have a dear friend of mine who told me that years ago. She even introduced me to black candles, simple, but it works!

  4. That kitchen is ridiculous---wow. Talented is an understatement. I do have pops of black (never really realized it)......I have to admit--I love black spray paint. :) Her work is beautiful.

  5. Good point! Black just works, no matter how you use it! Love the little pops. Especially against the neutral decor. I am looking around my office and I think I achieved it in this room. Black picture frames. ( : Done!
