From clothing to interiors, dark hues continue to move me this season. What else can I say except for…Bring on the drama.  A high contrast array of dark walls, honey colored floors, and white cabinetry [featured in 25 Beautiful Homes, August 2006] seem to have come full circle to next year’s list of hottest decor trends.

Black makes the greatest impact when paired with white. Think a black tuxedo worn with a crisp white shirt. There’s nothing sexier, don’t you agree? Go a step further and add a pop of color, like chartreuse, and go from traditional to trendsetting.

Are you brave enough to venture to the dark side?

    Ohhhh I love that door! I love the look of the black walls, but I like to be in really bright spaces. Thus the nook idea is totally up my alley.

    P.S. have you been to "vetted" yet? It is a new shop here in Atl and i think their door is chartreuse.

    I love black! I wear alot of black and use it alot in accessories and furniture for that pop of contrast, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to use it on a wall. Hmmm, you've given me something to think about now!

    I love the black with the lime door, although I doubt I'd ever have the courage for that. Adore black walls!

    I'm in awe! My mother has a very deep eggplant on her wall (mudroom) from the kitchen that "reads" black and it's stunning when you walk in and see it from the front door. Will have to sneak a photo! 😀
