I was sifting thru my inspiration folder and saw these stunning "black and white rooms". Uh, yes please. My collection of inspiration pics might currently surpass pics of the Freckles Chick family. Disturbing.
Well, stunning at first glance. Upon scrutinizing them further, I thought: "Imagine how those dark floors must showcase dust & grime daily. Would those black walls close in on you at night?" I think black painted walls are magnificent but a room really has to have some architectural details to it in order to pull off this dramatic color. Not something we all have the luxury of having. And honestly, how long before I'd get tired of it?
I always wonder when looking at impeccably designed rooms, do real people actually live there? I suppose this is why I consider my design magazines/blogs a guilty pleasure. It's how I vicariously live out my design fantasies, since I know most of these rooms wouldn't last 5 minutes with my dog (and husband). Regardless, there's no denying that these rooms make me breathless and my palms slightly sweaty with excitement.
Not exactly a world peace caliber of a discussion, but
is there a current design trend that just takes your breath away?
Have a happy weekend!
