Color Obsession: Décor Noir

It isn’t exactly a light-and-breezy summer color, and yet I’m seeing black everywhere right now. (Black, it seems, is the new black.)

It’s usually rendered in lustrous, high-gloss finishes and tends to take elaborate, almost baroque forms. Call it “Goth Gone Glam.”

Here, a selection of sinfully decadent, décor-noir items that will lend a dash of drama, a hint of elegance, and a note of rock ‘n’ roll attitude to your home:
