I’m in the market for a new desk chair. Preferably a swivel chair. But I want it to be beautiful as well as comfortable. So far, my research has consisted of trying every chair I see in all my usual favorite places to shop. But I need to be frugal about this purchase if I want to stay within budget. So far, these are the fancy desk chairs I’ve found on Amazon.com - my go-to when I’m not sure exactly what I want and need to see options of all kinds.
Unexpected, modern, and a sophisticated look, black cabinets emphasize clean lines, sleek hardware, and beautiful wood grain. The dark color also adds a hefty dose of contrast to prevent a neutral space from looking plain and washed out.
TIP: If you're hesitant to take the plunge into all-black cabinets, start with a dose of black on an island or a select bank of cabinets.
I’m always on the lookout for ideas and inspiration for the future remodel. All of our current interior doors are painted black and lacquered. And I love them. But, we’ve been talking about doors with glass and maybe even metal doors with glass. Then I came across this image on Instagram (@metro_steel_windows): a wall of steel windows and steel doors designed and installed to perfection.
And now, the possibilities are endless.
I could fall asleep forever in this bedroom.
Black is not a very common color in interior decors, especially when it comes to wall colors. But, even so, black can be very beautiful and a bold accent color. There are many ways you can use black in your decor and still have an airy and bright bedroom.
For one, you can paint the ceiling white to create balance. Black is strong and dramatic so use elements that add warmth like plants, wood pieces and gold finishes.
Black is my happy color, so I’m definitely painting my bedroom walls black. It’s happening.
You might think bar carts are just for storing wine bottles and mixer sets, but they’re actually quite versatile. They can serve so many other purposes around the house.
You can use a bar cart as an accessory cart to showcase your stuff. Anything from coffee table books, candles to special trinkets. Use it as a nightstand in the bedroom or to store your makeup, and in the living room as a side table. And, hello, we missed the most obvious one, a coffee bar cart!
I’ve found a few bar carts I have my eye on. Here are some of my favorites.
Open shelves above the cooking space is a great way to keep the most-used items within reach. If you love art, open shelving is the perfect place to display your favorite art pieces and still make the most of storage in your kitchen. While simple white dishes seem to be the most popular look on open shelving, warm wooden dishware against a dark wall adds warmth to a space that is anything but basic.
The process of starting a bedroom revamp is always a bit daunting. The trick is to first understand what kind of feel or theme you want. Once you choose a style, like Bohemian, the decorative elements will just fall into place.
I’ve always loved Bohemian style bedrooms. But I also love black. So, of course my Bohemian bedroom would feature a layered look that incorporates different patterns, textures, and lots of black.
Have you ever seen anything so luxurious? This tub is amazing. The velvety matte surface makes quite the architectural statement. I may be a bath kind of person after all.
I am in love with black homes!

Be bold and paint all the walls in your room black or try an accent wall to make your interior really stand out.

Black is versatile and eternally fashionable.
Black makes any room feel more modern. It's a little easier to take this bold leap in the bedroom, but the living room requires a degree of commitment. In this particular living room the designer embraces black everywhere from seating to lamp shades.
While the beautiful rug in the designer space is beautiful, it might not be in everyone’s price range. Luckily I found a great alternative on Amazon.
Some may think that black evokes an ominous architectural mood, but it is actually a great color to use on the exterior of your home. Black is an excellent way to make even a simple facade into a big statement.
I love the combination of black walls with wood furniture pieces. The tone of the wood adds warmth to the decor and helps create balance. I also love the way green plants just pop right off the black. It's a winning combination in my book.
Brass, black and white bestow a timeless, unimpeachable class. Recent trends have placed brass back in style, and images of interiors with this color scheme are popping up all over Pinterest. And I am in love.

Mix finishes if not metals
Keep it simple and clean
