Turn into a wastebasket This good looking pair is holding some natural treasures (another option), but I think the size could also work quite well as a bin in the home office or bedroom. Another idea? Clip the handle and create a DIY Platner with a round piece of glass on top.

Here's another beautiful example of how a black-and-white base palette ties together seemingly diverse items into a collected look.

Console. Consoles are often found in hallways, and hallways are a great spot to have a little fun with decor. A console in glossy paint will add a little eye-catching pizzazz for those walking through.

Wire-frame baskets, black and white art and frames, and a black table give the same high contrast without losing the warmth.

This is a perfect example of the relationship between art and the other elements in a space. With the strong black console and wall sculpture, the composition needed a little negative space to keep from reading as too heavy. Yet a single photo or painting centered over the table would have looked lost. The solution? A group of several works arranged in a way that creates fluidity and leaves breathing room, but still holds its own.

11. On furniture. Styling a room requires a mix of textures and tonal palettes. A shiny black lacquered piece of furniture works perfectly with matte walls, metallics, plants, wood and artwork. Why it works: The black helps emphasize the simple but strong lines of this hallway console. Color can be introduced though art or flowers.Tell us: Have you used black gloss in your home?

Edit your collectibles. Don’t hang on to a piece that just doesn’t fit. I don’t care if your great-aunt Sally gave it to you. If it’s not working for you, then find a new home for it (maybe in a different room). The unifying theme here is the use of black in the utilitarian pieces. The balance is almost perfect. It reminds me of something Coco Chanel said about accessorizing: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” In design, know when to stop.
