This week on Houzz there was a feature on black rooms. Oh goodness, they look so awesome!
If I were to paint walls black I'm sure we would turn into Incredible Mole People. So I'll paint small stuff. The other day I amused myself by painting a frame black. I antiqued the mirror and spray mounted a crossword puzzle to the back. It's been a while since I played with mirrors, so it was time.
There isn't a lot of black in our house. I've always felt black is a contemporary color although the rooms pictured above are more traditional. Regardless, around here black = Mole People, so it isn't going to happen. Even small black decorative accessories are scarce around here so when I decided to take some fun pictures I had to scramble to find fun props before the light went away.
Grouping old, black stuff together.....Addams Family? Or a good idea? Maybe as long as one doesn't get carried away and use, say, black candles.....
But when it comes right down to it, the color that makes me giddy when I spy it at a yard sale is green. Old, 1920's green. Be still my heart. Maybe a green wall? Maybe green will be the new black.
