  7. I absolutely agree - I love a little black here and there. The white buffet is wonderful. And it looks like your party went great too!

  8. I think black is a great neutral to ground colors, add a common element, and add a touch of sleekness to a room.

  9. Five years ago, I took the bold step to randomly add zebra print to my home. I was kicking and screaming as my friend pushed me towards it but was I did it, I was AMAZED at how it added a fun element to my decor.

  10. i must admit i don't have much black but am intriqued by the space it creates. it seems to clean up spaces just by the color. i rent my little cottage so transformations will have to come once we buy a house. great post giving us all lots of ideas and making us want to run to home depot and buy them out of black paint!
