Farmhouse "Black"

Hello everyone!

First of all, if you are in the path of Hurricane Harvey, I hope you will be safe and have minimal property damage!  I can only imagine how challenging it would be to deal with that while living on the coast.  The coast is both beautiful and treacherous at the same time!

I am starting to feel just a tinge of Fall in the air these days.  It's been cooler in the mornings and evenings and the humidity isn't very high today.  Maybe that will explain the need to change up a few things around my home.  Not too much, but just a little.  

I've introduced more black in my home to contrast with the creams and whites that I have throughout.  I'm liking the depth it gives the rooms.  

First, are these pillows and rug I placed in my foyer.

Would you believe that I found that Magnolia Home rug from Bed Bath & Beyond on sale and then used my 20% coupon so I only paid $17 for it?  Yep!  They take coupons (even expired ones) on every individual item (even if the item is on sale)!  They sell Magnolia Home pillows and rugs too!  You're welcome!  (wink)

I brought out some older pillows that I had as well.  This one landed on the stool beside the front door.

In my family room, I added some more black and white pillows. 

The Magnolia Home pillow in this chair was purchased for a mere song at Bed Bath & Beyond too!  It was marked WAY down and then I got an additional 20% off it as well. 

In my kitchen, I added this cute stack of little bowls.

And check out this cute handmade sign that I recently bought while out shopping one day with my husband.  It is locally made and sold at a nearby  shop. 

You can check out her site HERE.

I added a few black and white striped pillows that I already had on hand in my kubu chairs too.

So, now all of these black and white textiles bring out the graphics in my signs and other wall art that I have throughout.  I like how it all coordinates now.

I think it's a good transition into Fall, even though this color can be used year round!  Black IS a color, right?  Well, I'm treating it that way! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

It looks really pretty! Black and white or just black is always an elegant and classy choice.

I love the touches of black you have used! I didn't know that BBB sold Magnolia Home products!

Kelly I love the dark accents and a bit of a boho touch with the rug and pillow in the entry!!! MUAHH

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Love it all, Kelly! I've always thought the addition of black to a neutral decor makes it so interesting, and gives it a graphic punch!

I always love everyone you do Kelly, and this is no exception.

I had no idea bbb sold magnolia products. Thank you for that tidbit, and I hope you have a great weekend!

I love the black and white. You got a great deal on that rug. I saw those and thought they were priced a little high.
This is all perfect for early fall.

Black and white is always so classy - love all the accessories that you added. I think a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond to check out the Magnolia collection.
