all black everything

As a person who has painted more than a couple walls in her house black (“Cannonball” to be exact), is writing this post from a black desk while wearing black pants, a black sweater, black nail polish and black headphones, it’s safe to say I have embraced the darkest of colors. Whether a killer handbag, an eye-catching journal or a piece of furniture for the ages, black is often my go-to choice, even better if it’s matte. While I’m not into black lipstick (yet?) I found 12 other items for your home and life that embrace the dark shade. As they say in Star Wars, come to the dark side.

We are no strangers to the fact that this world we’re lucky enough to inhabit is full of incredible surprises. Take, for example, the images below. Who knew an iceberg, when inverted, could look like a floating gemstone? The semi-translucent underside has the color dreams are made of.

marsala

Before this year, a Google search for the word ‘marsala’ would likely return a myriad of recipes and wine pairings for your perusing. That same Google search today, though, returns very different results. As soon as Pantone announced it, the color marsala took over Google and the fashion, interior and design worlds. The warm, rich, full-bodied hue is reminiscent of the mauve we hated in the 80’s but has gotten a modern facelift we admire. Whether it’s used for menswear, Parisian interiors, food styling or classic cars, we think this color has the drama to last through the year and beyond.
