Living in Message from Degas

Living in Message From Degas

Heathfield Co gold leaf table lamp, $915 / 1882 Ltd white dinnerware / Eva Solo kitchenware dining, $82 / Ethan Allen throw pillow / Diptyque black candle / Kelly Wearstler accent chair / Fornasetti accent table, $4,925 / Traditional furniture

I haven't used enough black in my house. It can act as a highlighter or a space definer. I've been especially inspired by this Design Sponge post on using black paint. Helen Frankenthaler uses a lot of black in Message from Degas. It creates a beautiful contrast with the yellowish "river". That contrast creates a starkness that is so like Turpan, hence the desert-inspired home goods I discovered for this post.
