I saw this home office and immediately added it to my computer’s background. There isn’t much in terms of a lot of decor but the decor present makes a lot of impact. First, my love of black continues with a wall treatment done soley by using painters tape and a combination of flat and semi gloss paint in the same color. See more examples here.

The gold really contrasts nicely and that console table is stunning.  The use of a glass desk allows the beauty of the rug to show through as well as keep the room light and airy and prevents a heavy feeling which is important when using dark colors in smaller areas. Lastly the lamps and fixture are very nice pieces as well….

A home and blog with nothing but black and white…

image

Color schemes. Well for the most part at least. When I first came across Stylizimo Blog, I literally went page by page in the archives. It’s just that good. I like the poster size art which I’m slowly incorporating in my own home. I like them for the large scale and you can find inexpensive prints at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby…
