CURTAIN CALL: BLACK

I have long questioned the presence that a black drapery might bring to a room. I'm fairly certain I've now got the answer: a moody elegance that may be hard to achieve, but totally doable and cool if you can pull it off!

P.S. sorry in advance for the lack of posting today. M and I will be making the trip with my family from Minneapolis to Green Bay, WI to move them into their new town/home for the next few days.

Black curtains are very stylish in large rooms with lots of light, but terrible in small ones like mine. When the interieur is all over black and white they are great.

they work GREAT as long as when they are open you have LOTS of natural light - in my opinion! ..

one of my friends has a home theatre in their basement - and they have black electronic curtains that close when it's 'movie time' .. how cool right?!

Agreed with Erika - they work great as long as they don't darken the room too much. I guess it just takes the perfect room and the perfect curtain - neither of which I have to make it work, :)

I have been considering black sheers for my apartment, I have teal ones up now. I get loads of light all day, and so I think it will be just fine. I have all colorful things going on in the room right now and am eager to switch it up and make it more elegant! Might just be the way to go. Plus with my beige walls and gold carpet and then the deep chocolates and yeah black in the apartment and then my pops of white and red I think it will be just fine.
