I often find myself telling people, if I could build myself a new house right now it would be black on black on black. Just layers of black. Ugh. I just love black. I was trying to illustrate this look to one of my clients but its a tough sell. That is until I found this throwback. A home designed by Houston designer Cathy Echols, yay Texas!
This is a perfect visual of just how I would love to live in a deeply rich, dark black home with glamorous accents and a LOT of natural light of course. The thing about black is that any other color just pops so brightly right off of it.
I think I would have gone with a chandelier with a little more of a grand scale and Parisian flair but hey, thats just me. I love the way the art and blooms just pop and add such a delicious richness. How good does the wood look against black too. It really brings out all of the flaws and looks so good and rich. I love.
We all know how much I love to decorate with crystals and stones so this large pink number is totally bomb and right up my alley.
I have always dreamed of having a canopy bed. I had one when I was a little girl and have always wanted one since. It's so Barbie's mansion to me. Love. I also love the mix of white bedding, black quilt and beige canopy fabric. Such a chic color mix.
Last but not least her outfit here is killer. What a dame. I also love the art she is standing in front of. Also, orchids are always my favorite flower for home decorating. This is total perfection.
