I know for a lot of you out there, the thought of painting your walls a dark color is horrifying, yet if done right and with hints of color, it will not only give off a classy look, but it will actually look bigger! I just love black/grey walls, there is just something about the lack of color that makes the walls pop and is just so darn relaxing. Today, I pulled together inspiring images with rooms that were done right. Adding white, red or my current fav right now, teal to a dark interior can really bring your eye to exactly what you want ie in photo 3 the stunning red sink!

I so rarely see black, yellow and white done in a great way, but Elizabeth from Everything Yellow did an amazing job on her guest room/office. It looks grown up yet still whimsical and fun and that storage… a-maze-ing! I can’t get over her attention to detail and love love love her tags! Made me look at my crafting area and groan. Be sure to check out Everything Yellow for more photos and all kinds of design goodies!

Ok, so you love the idea of adding black to your place but the thought of painting makes you cringe. Why not add black accessories? These days, keeping it simple with black and white is hardly seen yet so good looking! Everyone is going crazy with color (me included) but there are so many little beauties out there waiting to transform your space into a ubber chic experience. A few things that caught my eye around the web: 1. Starburst Wall Clock, 2. Alice in Wonderland and Pinocchio by Elista, 3. Ribbon Cup and Saucer set, 4. Black Links Rim Bowl, 5. South Hampton Desk, 6. Black Stitched Suitcase, 7. Sway Can, 8. Damask dinnerware set, 9. Florence pillows.
