While I love a crisp, clean modern white palette for most of my home, I am really loving the idea of having one black room.

A classic black room with pops of rich colors like gold, blue and magenta can create a really sophisticated and inspired atmosphere.

This kitchen is the first black room that really sparked my interest. There is a perfect balance with the white cabinets and refrigerator. The clean black and white let the aqua door and art work really shine.

A black bedroom serves as a dark cocoon to read, relax and rest in.

Donatella Versace’s version includes bold white moldings to give the dark space structure and depth.

On the chic black walls I would have gold accents like these Brass Wall Flowers.
