On the 4th Day of Christmas The Design House gave to me...

4 Calling Birds!  Originally 4 Calling Birds was 4 Colly birds, which are actually blackbirds.  Somewhere along the way it was adapted to Calling birds, but for today I referring back to Colly birds and I'm showcasing black gift ideas.  Fun!

This great geometric black and white pillow would be wonderful on a colored sofa or chair.  Imagine this pillow on a fun black and white damask comforter with brightly colored sheets, hot pink anyone? Yes please!
An awesome Corinth mirror with black frame is a fantastic way to add light to the space as well as character.  Clustering these and creating a collage would be fun in a bedroom, hallway or entry space.  It would work amazingly with the pillow pictured above.

Using black and white in decorating is always exciting.  There are so many different combinations of fabrics, paints, furnishings etc. that you can do, it leaves you with endless possibilities.  This room they chose to highlight the panel molding with white paint and carried it up to the ceiling.  Below the molding the walls were painted black and the flooring is a plush white carpet, such a nice contrast.  Sleek white bedding with black trim was used to offset the cushy black upholstered headboard.  The crowning jewel of the room is the black crystal chandelier.  It literally is the jewelry for this "little black dress" of a space.  The fun thing about using black and white is that you can use a variety of different accessory colors to and some punch to the space; hot pink, yellow, chartreuse (lime green,) aqua, red...the list goes on and on.  It also allows you to change out accessories if you get bored easily; remove the pink and change it to red.
