Friday faves - black and wood

Today I'm happy to announce that we have a guest poster in for Friday Faves!It has been one long week so this couldn't have come at a better time for me.

I've been thinking of doing a Friday Faves on black for a WHILE now but didn't know quite how to narrow it came Jessica with a suggestion to focus on Black and Wood - genius. Enjoy, and happy weekend!


Hello! I’m Jessica, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a website and blog with a wonderful selection of affordable light fixtures and interior design inspirations every day! I’m delighted to be guest posting for Heather today because I'm going to sharing a chic, contemporary combination in interior design – the color black and wood textures. The crisp, stark quality of the color black contrasts beautifully with the grain and texture of wood. I hope you find these interiors as unique and inspiring as I do!
Pendant Lighting
This spacious apartment shows just how serene and stylish minimalism can be when it comes to interior design. From the bare wooden floorboards to the rugged wooden furniture, this apartment is grounded and earthy with simple black, modern accents.
Pendant Lighting
The black stacking chairs make wonderful accents on this bright and airy patio. The weathered floorboards lend a bit of rustic beauty to the charming and playful d├ęcor.
Den Lighting Fixtures
I love the varying types of wood in this eclectic dining room. The contemporary pendant lights are certainly eye-catching and unique.
Bedroom Lighting
The cool, modern atmosphere in this bedroom comes from having just enough dark moody colors and bright open windows. The black frames throughout the room and dark hardwood floor are beautiful against the dusty blue walls and crisp, white curtains.
Living Room Pendant Lighting
Black furniture and dark wood floors create a great contrast with the brighter walls and ceiling in this lovely living room. A single black pendant light makes a great focal point.
Pendant Lighting
The black and white color palette of this home is quite dramatic, yet the matte colors are broken up by the wood textures that show through. The red ceiling light, cow skin rug and exposed ceiling beams add a burst of color.
Table Lamp
The traditional style of this bedroom demonstrates the beauty of classic simplicity. The mix of colors is grounded with the black accents and wooden floor for a lovely effect.
Dining Room Chandelier
The black industrial shelves in this quirky dining room stand out against the bright green wall and help showcase the white pottery. Plenty of wood features keep the room fresh and natural.

Black and wood-- now you're talking my language! My other love is grey, white and wood. I especially love the first pic.

Great post! I really like the use of black in the first and third image. I'm not a huuuge fan of the colour (shade?) so for me it's most effective in small punches, with the wood to anchor it.
