Black accents are the trend right now and I’m not talking about your ’80’s black. This black is done in simple additions, light backgrounds and mixed with natural wood tones and brass fixtures. White, wood, black and brass! That is where it is currently at!
It can be difficult to get right though. I’m here to offer my tips on how to add that perfect mix of black accents in your bath without going overboard. Overboard = busy and we do not want busy!
In the below bath, I want you to take notice of how much black is used. Just about every element has black added. Black grout, black plumbing fixtures, black framed shower doors, black trimmed light fixture and even black in the floor tile.
This room could have been softened and a feeling of calm brought in by matching the tile grout colour to the tile and adding brass plumbing fixtures, keeping all of the other elements the same.
Interesting to note, the above bathroom was the most liked image on One King Lane’s #MyOKLStyle feed in 2016.
The above images illustrate the perfect amount of black! This room has such a calm feeling by limiting the black. Brass plumbing fixtures and a rug in natural tones soften this bath space. Notice the grout colour? It matches the tile! One other thing that I have to bring to your attention to, is that the shower tile is edged in brass. A beautiful design element that perhaps gets lost in a photo but in person, really adds to the space.
This beautiful bathroom design by Delia Mamann Interiors has executed the use of black exquisitely! Only the vanity is black. She has used brass bars on the vanity, brass plumbing fixtures, brass light fixtures and even the shower glass is trimmed in brass. The tile is grey instead of black which softens the look. The marble slab is predominantly white and grey but the darker greys in it read black because of the vanity which ties it into the room.
My new favourite blog crush is The House of Silver Lining! I highly recommend you click through and savour her designs of The Forest Modern. The above image is perhaps the most on trend bathroom on social media right now. It uses a bit of black, natural wood, white walls and brass. What makes this so perfect, are the floors. They have grey and not black which softens the look and blends it in beautifully. It just doesn’t get any more perfect than this!
