You can combine black windows and doors with crisp white moldings for contrast. This will give you a fresh traditional look without getting too dark and heavy. Gina Fitzsimmons, Annapolis, Md.

Did our dining room trim and doors in black against linen colored walls. I've always loved Black & Tan.

dunedingirl, from baretta11, thankyou for your comments.
I have got allot out of reading all the posts on black accents.
I do love black but would never have considered using it indoors in a dramatic or full on way, but I have already said that I absolutely love the pics attached to this forum.
All the ideas are so inspiring and after reading your post, I'm surprised that black wouldn't look overdone in a room with normal ceiling heights but I think what I have learned from people who have already used black successfully, is that it's good to start with a little and give yourself time to see what if anything else could be added to the scheme.
Also, I think once anyone uses dark colours, they must balance.
I have seen some ghastly rooms painted entirely navy blue or red and I think strong colours are accents mainly, I feel personally.
Do you have any photo's you could post of your handywork??
Cheers,
Barbara

We were doing the Baltimore Symphony Show House this year and used a bit of coiled rope to display a brass cleat collection on a mirrored tray. The contrast in texture worked out well! Gina Fitzsimmons

To me, this would get old very quickly - and yes, to me it cheapens it, but I don't want to hurt the owner's feelings - to each her own! It seems like an ok idea for the beach or lake. I'm not really into "themes" such as nautical, etc. - I think they get tiring...but lots of people like this type of thing. I also absolutely hate (sorry everyone) all these signs people now put up in there houses - things like "Simple" or "Fresh" in the kitchen or "Keep Calm and Carry On" in the family room....I really hope this trend passes by fast. I remember when I first saw it a few years ago and thought, "this will go away fast" - and it hasn't yet. I always feel like "use ropes" or "use buttons" or all these signs are all about someone who wants us to buy all this stuff...get tired of it...and then buy something else in 5 years. Maybe that shows my age!:)

Angie, I agree. I think some of these rope elements might look really nice in a beach home with a nautical theme. But if the owner is happy with their room, that's all that matters.

I didn't want to hurt anyone's feeling either, which is why I didn't say which photos I didn't like. I actually found some of these interesting.

I see signs at spas and such, and I don't mind that. I don't understand people painting words on their walls, or hanging signs. I don't know anyone that does this, but I have seen them in magazines, HGTV, and online.

I still really love looking at other peoples' decorating style. I'm sure to a lot of people, my home would be quite boring.

The Maritime influence is very prevalent in our Mid Atlantic, Annapolis area. At the Baltimore Symphony Show House we paired deep red leather sofas with a ropey jute rug and a custom made cocktail table made from oars! Gina

Thanks for sharing! Those are some really fun projects. I have done a few varieties of Coastal myself. It is fun to see how different client expectations can be when the words Casual Coastal are tossed around....
