I just came across this photo and before I throw in my designer 2 cents...I wonder, what are your thoughts on Black molding?? Please share!

I'm just getting caught up on a few weeks worth of your posts, but my vote is "yes" for black trim!

Like the concept but I'm thinking there's 1 too many black lines my eyes seem to want to leave the room & just look up. Perhaps remove 1 from the cornice.

I think this looks great, but feel like a room needs high ceilings to be able to pull it off properly.

thanks for all the comments! I did not want to sway the conversation by putting in my 2cents first. I kept coming back to this photo, which is usually a good sign. partly because my eye jumps all over the room, its definitely not calming but that's part of its appeal. The way the black creates a sharp border is a great affect. With all that said I like this room but might need to "white out" the ceiling molding to make it livable for me! Great convo, thanks again!

I love the mix of contemporary and chic light shades. That bamboo looks amazing too.

the black trim is making the architectural elements of the space look even more amazing.

I like it in this room. I would have to see everything first, you know?

Creategirl said...

Levina, I agree it is a great way to put a spotlight on the architectual details. It's one of the things I love most about Boston homes!
