Light & Dark - a beautiful contrast

Designer Candace Barnes is a master at playing dark and light off each other. Hope you enjoy these interiors. On an unrelated note, I haven't mastered new Bloggers "centering" function. Any tips for me? (photographer not known)

Hi Michele
I love the driftwood like wood in the fireplace and so much else about the last photo. Having light and dark captures ones interest immediately!

I love this look. Very stylish. And I also love the driftwood in the fireplace.
All best,

Beautiful images, Michele. I love dark and light too.
If you click near the image after you have uploaded. click on the image or near and a panel should appear, letting you choose your size.
Happy Tuesday.

Looks very manly.
In love with that painting.
Click left, then center. that usually works for me.

Really loving this kitchen. I love contrast. Thanks for sharing!

Light and dark go together. Light only, and everything seems to float; the dark anchors. Love the colors from the artwork in the background of the first photo. I agree with pve about clicking left, then center -- sometimes the pictures can be so obstinate!

The fun thing about the driftwood in the fireplace is it looks like flames.

I sometimes have trouble with the centering. I sometimes have to highlight the entire post, move everything to left or right justification and then back to the center. It's very stubborn sometimes.

I love a light and dark contrast. My favorite room in my house is a walnut paneled room that opens into a neutral colored living room - the kitchen is amazing!!

PS - I love the kitchen island....very unusual base cabinets.

Carla Aston said...

The kitchen is dramatic yet soft and elegant...love it. I'm also liking the island with the open space beneath...perfect for pulling up a barstool to sit and use the counter as a workspace.

Love the contrasts. I know I am in the minority, but I am so over all neutral rooms.


When I am introduced to new work...it just reminds me how much talent is out there! Thanks.
