Interior designer Jan Showers once said, “Every room needs a touch of black” and when I examine the spaces pictured below, I’m certainly persuaded. We don’t have a lot of black in our home beyond the fireplace surrounds and the piano, but I’m considering adding more since a touch of black always ups the level of sophistication in any room when used in both small and large doses.
An easy way to begin introducing classic black into your home is through the use of dark curtain rods and with small furniture details. This elegant bathroom also benefits from a freestanding tub finished in matte sheen.
A chalkboard wall brings a touch of black into the home and also brings the fun along with it as a place to doodle, make lists, or leave notes to family members.
