In home design, black is the new black. It’s dramatic. It bold. And it’s very “now.” Matt black stainless steel is giving the 20-year fav, regular stainless steel, a run in the appliance sector. Black bathtubs, faucets and window frames are popping up in magazines and designer showcases.
Black Window Frames
A recent article in Builder Magazine touted the virtues of black window frames and black hardware.
“An all-black window with matte black hardware makes a confident statement. Black draws your eye and says, ‘This window is a design element’ and should be noticed. It can stand alone, letting the view take center stage.”
Many of us would never consider painting a room—or even a wall—black. Yet black can lend an air of sophistication to any space from a bedroom to a dining room. The trick is to offset all that dark with lots of light and white. The result can be stunning.
Using Black in Tropical Decor
Florida is known for its tropical décor. Lots of white. Lots of bright. Lots of pastels. Yet, amid the blues, greens, pinks and whites of tropical inspired rooms, there is definitely a place for black.
Modern black bar stools in an all-white kitchen anchor the space. For even more drama, this kitchen boasts stained glass with a matt black frame.
Matt black appliances are the latest trend in kitchen design. And they work well with any color decor.
