Iconically Speaking, The Little Black Dress is Way up There. Most women will tell you it’s a must – a staple everyone should have in her closet. I have to admit, the color black is one of my favorites.

Black is an essential for the home as well as the wardrobe. It draws your attention, provides contrast and adds a pop of interest to any room.  We’ve gathered a few basic black items perfect for bookshelves, the coffee table or a side table. Surprisingly, many accent pieces out there are beautiful and make great conversation starters, too. It can be as simple and easy as a new vase or bowl, a sculpture or book, collected shells from a trip, a vintage camera or unique functional items. Keep it basic and your look will be just as iconic as the LBD: Eye-catching and classic!
