Trend Alert: Black Accents

Source

Someone recently told me “Every room needs something black in it;” a rule that, I realized, is an inherent practice that, as a designer, I most always tend to follow. Ultimately, every room needs a bit of contrast. When a palette is becoming too monochromatic, that’s when its time to pull in the black. “Something black” could mean tile, or paint; but it can also come in the form of furniture or decor or even artwork. The subtle, yet impressive black accents in these interiors really complete the spaces.
