Black is everywhere these days.
I first starting using black when I designed a kitchen with black glass cupboards about eight or nine years ago. I loved it, I wanted to live in that kitchen.
However, until recently I had never found the right spot to add black in my own home. Plus my husband was seriously against it so I had to be careful not to scare him...men scare easily when it comes to decor.
We have this giant fireplace wall and it was super imposing but my husband wanted it in a dark color to highlight it further. First I matched the tobacco color of the couch, then I tried the pale gray of my chairs and then I threw my hands in the air. I didn't like any of it.
Finally I saw this picture of my exact fireplace and wall on instagram and I got my husband to agree to painting the wall black and this is the result.« Decorate
