We are totes on board with the black paint “trend.” It’s hardly a trend, it is a classic.
Living in New England, we see a lot of old barns and farmhouses that are in white, red, weathered wood, and BLACK. It is true, what is old IS new again. Now, what’s a great paint for your new black exterior?
Sherwin Williams Greenblack has you covered. It’s not black-black, but has a depth to its color that makes it mmmm, mmm good. See?
How can we add a little punch to our interiors?
Well, thanks for asking! First, we always choose “almost black” accents to add to most of designs. It offsets most designs that we create by adding another element that pleases the eye. Also black accents, whether through paint or accessories makes interiors more…interesting.
Take a look:
Isn’t this an amazing space? The weathered black leather sofa, it has the perfect worn patina, paired with the high gloss, painted black trim and black frames on the gallery wall create a beautiful interior.
So, how about black paint or accessories in the kitchen?
Love the hood…and these room and board stools with the black woven seats!
We LOVE this take on the white kitchen. Remember a few weeks ago we said we were so OVER white kitchens? Well, this one is a bit more interesting due to the lighting. It TOTALLY upgrades kitchen to covet level…I mean, we do love a white kitchen, but sometimes they can appear a little too sterile. So, these large, cone pendants in black add contrast that is needed in an all white space.
How would we add a little black paint or accent to a kitchen? Right now, we have heart eyes over the Carson stool from Serena and Lily, they’re an instagram staple!
We just placed our order for our new (counter height) stools and we will update with photos soon…
What do you do when you have to design around an oversized piece of art or furniture? Well, we decide to go bold. Much like we did with this BOLD BESPOKE mood board for a client. This design was for an office, and an oversized painting of Clint. How do you make it the centerpiece…
It starts with a textile...typically a bitchin rug, and ends with lots and lots of layers. We love the vintage collection at our local fave: PRG (Persian Rug Gallery) in Nashua, NH, or this awesome Instasale shop: @shopfleamarketfab for amazing poufs and pillows to add to your space. Or how about that awesome stair runner?…
Let's get inspired by them Alps! Clean lines, hygge (hoo-ga: cozy) and pine (all day), create the ultimate alpine attitude for this mood board Monday. It feels like it's time to take a trip down the bunny slopes, or at least sit fireside with a (spiked) hot chocolate! That's impeccable.
