They say, “trends come and go, but style never leaves.” Do you remember in the past when interior designers were obsessed with a high contrast black-and-white? Everything was shiny, glossy black, and we all battled fingerprints throughout the house. We soon tired of continually wiping fingerprints and transitioned into natural light colors, including pale oaks, seagrass, and whites. However, in recent years, we have almost reached a point of TOO much white, leaving us all craving a little bit of color and contrast in our lives.
You’ve heard every other color of the rainbow introduced as “the new black,” but I’m here to say that black is back and claiming it’s rightful place in the home. Black is both stylish and classic, allowing you to keep it in your home for years to come while also maintaining a fresh, timeless, and beautiful style. Black matches just about every color palette and can be used anywhere in your home.
When used correctly, black grounds the room, keeping your eye from wandering throughout the space among the washout of lighter tones. Before you rush out and snap up all of the shiny black furniture from the nearest flea market, remember, the goal is to maintain a natural style. Keep your additions low contrast and shine-free, opting for matted options instead. Think of:
Are you craving a little contrast in your life? You can use organic black accents with nearly every other color, including turquoise, greens, whites, and beiges. Psychologically, the color black is said to inspire authority, power, and strength, but can also be soothing depending on the tones chosen.
