Can we agree that inserting black into your interior design plans is the surest way to add a bit of moodiness and chic to a space?

It's true, at Elsie Green we love bright, light and airy interiors, but we also love utilizing black to contrast bright whites and neutrals to add character and charm. We've rounded up a few pretty images for you where we think black was used in an impactful, but not overwhelming way.

Laurie's recommended black paint colors:

"Black Jack is my favorite black. Iron Mountain is a nice warm black. If you aren't ready to commit to a true black, go for Bittersweet Chocolate for a warmer take on a moody room. It is very nice for a bedroom or powder room."
