In honor of the new Star Wars trailer that was just released, let's take a look at how the darkside isn't always evil... I love a simple, monochromatic space like all of you, but sometimes adding a little contrast makes it a little more interesting. Just look at this space above and those floors! While painting wood floors super dark may not be a natural inclination, it certainly worked for this space. It grounds the space, while all the books add color and the large pendant lights add style.

The natural light coming from those oversized windows help the space remain fresh and open. Image from Coco Lapine Design Small elements can make huge impact. Not sure if you want to paint anything super dark or purchase a black sofa? That's ok, you can add style with something dark by just including a little. While those black dining chairs and black floor lamp are small compared to the vastness of white space, they create a nice contrast and still make their voices heard. Whether you go big or small, adding a dark element to your white space will result in big style... May the force be with you.
