Using Black to Blend Fixtures and Décor

Lighting is one of the most impactful elements in home décor. When it’s time for an update, many homeowners find they can make the biggest impact by replacing all of their old, outdated lighting. That’s great advice for those who can simply replace all of their existing fixtures with new ones. But what if you don’t want to replace all of your fixtures and worry that bringing in one or two new ones will create a disjointed, incongruous style? Solution: Simply introduce a fixture that is black or partially black with other elements that match your existing fixture family.

A black fixture can easily blend with polished brass, nickel, brushed pewter or other metals. Many new fixtures mix black with various colors, materials and finishes. Not only versatile, two-tone finishes are attractive and stylish as well.
