Lately I've been considering painting my back door black. While pulling pieces from my garage to see what works in the family room, I came across a black vase that I found for like 5 bucks while thrifting. After placing it on the mantle and adding some "faux" greenery to it, I really liked how it worked in the space.
So I've been thinking about adding a little more black to the space... Like a black door for instance. After heading to my go to source for inspiration (Pinterest), I came across a few images that have me dead set on painting the door black.
This is probably the only inspiration I really needed to be swayed into painting my own door. With the glimpse of the white slipcovered chairs in what appears to be a mostly neutral room with a hint of color, this is spot on what I'm trying to do in my own space.
I originally felt like I didn't want to overwhelm the space with black, but when I came across this image, I realized that the right amount of lighting will help with making the black not seem so overbearing in a space.
What's your take on black doors? Or using black in a space in general? The plans that I have in mind for my family room originally didn't call for black at all. I honestly never would have considered it had it not been for that vase. Funny how things happen like that.
