If you are like me, possibly the largest bulk of black in your home is the 45" digital TV that one simply can't disguise (I often find myself wondering why we don't see white TV's). Today I want to actually welcome black in a decorating palette and see how interior designers have used it to create some stunning spaces.

Above: The painting determines the colours in this dining room. The bleached wood framed chairs reflect the white of the horse and the upholstery reflects the colours of the background of the painting. You may notice the curves of the tops of the chairs reflect the curves seen in the horse. Other pictures are kept simple with black frames.

1.When planning to decorate a bedroom, it is important that certain elements of design are followed to achieve a welcoming and restful haven. I am planning to re-decorate my small master bedroom and created a list of points to help when planning this space. As I want to use a number of images to illustrate these points, I have decided to blog this post in a few parts. Please note, the is not a sponsored post so where I have referred to products or other websites, it is merely to help you with more information.

'Bramasole' From Under The Tuscan Sun - A Peek Inside This Pretty Tuscan Villa now known as Villa Laura

In 2006 Bramasole was sold and further restored and is now one of the most beautiful villas available to rent in Cortona. With three buildings, the Villa, Farmhouse and Limonaia, I thought today you may enjoy a little tour.
