Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
I hope each of you are having a wonderful Monday! My Monday blues were lifted by a revelation at the gas station *wink* Read more about it here. Now, let’s jump right to the VIP Home fun…shall we?!
This week on VIP, our theme is “Black to Basics” highlighting on how basic black can not only elevate your wardrobe, but also your home! Check out this week’s VIP Home design board to get a feel for Black to Basics *wink*
Keep scrolling for some helpful tips on how to slip subtle black pieces into your home without a total decor overall!
- Whether it be a little black dress or a little black chalkboard, black is one of those colors every woman needs in her wardrobe and home. An easy way to add Black to Basics in your home is with a fun chalkboard DIY project–Pinterest has a vast amount of ideas, if you are needing some inspiration to get you started. If you are not much of the crafty type, check out Etsy for lovely, handmade chalkboard art–supporting handmade always adds a smile to the home!
- Another easy way to add some Black to Basics in your home is through small accessories like tea pots, dishware, and tchotchkes. You can typically find these items for cheap at places like TJ Maxx or Marshalls. ALSO, I have found that thrift/consignment shops often have rad vintage finds, so if you are looking for something more unique, give thrifting a try.
- If you are a black and white photo junkie like me, a super subtle way to add the Black to Basics element in your home is through black and white photo canvas prints. I know quite a few people who have gotten black and white wedding pictures or family portraits taken and printed onto canvas for cool living room art work. I have to say, I am debating on doing this with my dog (Ziva) and me*wink* If only I could get her to sit still enough long enough to take a portrait….*wink*
