The CFDA Awards just took place and the red carpet is to fashionable celebs like South Africa is to soccer. While checking out the goods to rate my favorites, I noticed a trend....and it's black. Not only black dresses, but those dresses were decked in sequins. I am officially declaring shiny black the new IT color. Gwyneth Paltrow was by FAR my favorite of the night. The simple hair and make-up put all the emphasis on her amazing dress. Black is one color that stands out in my own wardrobe; and knowing that it is out on the red carpet on a sunny June day has me running to pull out those dresses I "put away for fall".
The other place where black is in....decor! Whether it be painting your kitchen cabinets a shiny black or an accent wall to make it pop, it's truly "in" when decorating your home. Here are some of my favorites!
Jenna Lyons was right on with this trend when decorating her townhouse.
Doesn't this kitchen just make you want to entertain? Although I will admit, I had a black sink in our last place and it's HARD to keep clean.
Not only are walls and cabinets turning up black, but so are the accessories, like this piece from Devon & Devon. Yes please!
Above is one of the best examples of black done "cozy" if you ask me; although, I may just stick to a standout fireplace. One of my very favorite images from Lonny magazine.
