Melaine at My Sweet Savannah recently shared that no matter how many times she redecorates, she goes 'back to black'. Pat at Back Porch Musings has a gorgeous home, and along with beautiful wood tones, has some gorgeous black painted pieces. Sandy at Paint Me White shared the lovely contrast of black and white in 'Black is Back'.

I was surfing through kijiji the other day, and found my way to a Toronto blog and store, Kimberley Jackson, with some beautiful furniture made from salvaged materials. They have some awesome black pieces as well.
I also like mixing black with plain or scrubbed pine like in our dining room. While this is too country for some, it really appeals to me.
Especially when I add in lots of white china and simple white drapes.
I also like using black frames, as I did here in our family room, with or without white mats.
Do you like black accessories or furniture in your home? Or is black just not your thing? I would love for you to share your thoughts.
