Color My World Linky Party

It's hard to believe the color my world challenge is over.
I honestly love all the little touches of black this challenge has added to my home.
It's funny how I've hated black in the past.
My china cabinet project and side table diy were both projects I tackled in the past year to remove black from my rooms.
I think the key for me is to add black in small touches.  
Like eyeliner, it adds just a bit of outlining to the space and helps the eye find somewhere to focus.
But since it's in such small lines there is no black hole in the room like I disliked in those larger pieces of furniture.
What was your favorite project I tackled?
What color projects are you working on in your own home?
black and white python covered glass vases
Black framed modern art I painted myself
Black accessories like the Pottery Barn vase & top (used as a bowl), the zebra pillows, black and white dotted scarf used as a throw, and black Pottery Barn picture frames with black and white photos

Black accessories used in another vignette
