This is the sitting room in our home that is right off the entryway from our front door. It’s the first room our guests see when they enter our home.
I had a very specific vision for this room when I went to design and decorate it. I wanted to create a bold but stylish look that would draw people in. I have long been a fan of using black for accent walls, but this was the first time I dared to paint the whole room in black. Since this room has a great grand window to our front yard, I knew it would get a ton of natural sunlight which would help brighten it up in case the black darkened it too much.
I am also a huge fan of contrast when decorating. For this room, since we wrapped the walls in this bold black – I wanted to have the furniture pop, so we used natural woods, white, ivory, brass and tan to create bold yet neutral look. We also added a pop of color with the artwork bringing in blues and greens.
