Making black pretty


Isn't the black such an interesting and lovely introduction to this room. And so surprising. You don't often associate black with pretty tulle and floral. Nor do you think black as a "soft" colour but it works magically well here. Perhaps that lovely tulle skirt below could work beautifully with black as well...

  17. Black can be such a masculine colour, I've done my home in Black, White & Silver and it feels very modern, but these images are definitely more feminine and beautiful! Love it! :) Hazel

  25. I am so loving tulle, so sophisticated and girly at the same time. And black does go with it so well! That skirt is gorgeous!! Wish I could get away with that at work ;)

  26. I totally agree. Am in such a black phase right now, and this is very unusual as my DNA is Swedish and truly programmed to crave whites and neutrals.. :)

    Love your pictures. Very inspiring indeed.
