Little Black with Your Coffee

I'm usually one for light, bright decor in a breakfast area, but I love the touches of black in these breakfast rooms; black fabrics, rugs, lampshades, even walls. I might even start taking my coffee black.

Antique mirror set in black lacquer mullions makes this such a rich space. Even the floor is black lacquer.

Love the combination of black with those copper light fixtures.

It's hard to tell in this photo, but that rug and the wallpaper are actually black. Black and emerald green is such a classic combo and trending hard right now. For more of this look, click here.

This room would sure wake you up.

Just a touch of black adds a little contrast here...

Okay, so this is more of a dining room, but it's one of my favorites. I love the way this black rug grounds this crisp white room. Same for the shades on those emerald porcelain lamps. To order that fabulous light fixture, or any products you like on these pages, just shoot us an email.


  1. I love that second image! A touch of black is always a great addition !

  2. I love the first two images. There is something so striking about black French windows and doors.

  3. Dear Alexandra ... I love these images! I would love to do a black lacquered kitchen with white marble tops! Beautiful as always and I hope you are well!
