Decorating With Black

Decorating with black details make this Southbridge, MA dining room anything but dark and boring.

Custom gathered tied tab drapes in a vibrant black floral chintz frame the view.

A whimsical hand crafted wooden drapery rod is a perch for custom cut black bird silhouettes.

The coordinating Wilton Weave area rug repeats the black with vibrant floral pattern.  The rug softens the terra cotta floor and anchors the table.

White walls and trim are a nice backdrop to the striking black accents.
