A Dull Room Gets Bold with a Black Wall
Nicole White Designs Inc
January 16, 2013 in Before & After
My client wanted a wow factor in her new room and was in love with the idea of a black wall. We balanced it with an opposing wall in a neutral color and used mirrored side tables and furniture to add some glamour. Fun throw pillows and pops of color in the accent pieces also added some fun to the space. For more photos on this project visit my blog: www.livelaughdecorate.com

Who are you? Amazing transformation! Woulda never considered this - Do like the burgundy chairs thrown into the mix, the dramatic drapes, the mirrors - you pulled it off perfectly!

Who am I? Just a Miami based interior designer! Thanks for the kudos! It was a quick turn around job but the transformation was worth all the stress of pulling it all together so quickly.

Great sharp contrast, you don't see to many people going with a solid black wall.

Dramatic, for sure. But there doesn't seem to be anything personal here...photos, art, etc. More of a hotel lobby vibe, to me.

Thanks so much for the feedback. @Ictpdc, I removed framed photos of the family to protect their identity. @homeowner newbee, the Starburst mirrors are from Home Goods but were spray painted silver; the white mirrors were once dark brown. The clients purchased years ago so I'm not certain of the source. For more images and details see my blog post: http://www.livelaughdecorate.com/2013/01/a-black-wall-some-shimmer-and-voila-new.html

Love the way you turned a white box into a glamorous room. Some thoughtful details really stand out like how the chandelier plays off the cutout shape in the dining room chairs.
