Farmhouse Style Black Accents I Love

Well, you knew this post was coming, didn’t you? I mean it had to happen eventually, right? It’s no secret that I’ve been loving black accents a LOT lately, so I figured the time had finally come to dedicate an entire post to my growing obsession with black decor. I was actually reading something the other day about how every room needs a pop of black. It’s a classic rule of design, although if I’m being really honest I rarely pay attention to design rules. I’m a rebel that way. BUT I do agree that black accents have an amazing way of giving any room a very classic and timeless look. I especially love the high contrast look of black and white, so that’s something I’ve been doing more lately in our home. And did anyone ever notice how often JoJo used black accents on Fixer Upper? They were everywhere and she always blended them in perfectly. Anyway, black accents are the bomb, so today I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorites to share. You know, in case you’ve got a room that needs a little pop of black!

First up is this black framed chalkboard. I have this in our kitchen and LOVE it. And the price is just right.

This oversized black tray is perfect for a large dining table centerpiece. Or it could also work on the coffee table with a few faux plants. There are lots of styling possibilities with this and I love the distressed look too.Farmhouse style black accents. Vintage inspired botanical prints.

You know I’ve been loving botanical prints lately, so I had to include this set of four framed prints. I love the rustic black frame and the prints are black too, which is gorgeous. These would be perfect hanging in the dining room or even over your bed. And they’re on sale right now too!

farmhouse style school house clock

I put this black oversized clock in my office and I absolutely love it. My favorite part is the old school house vibe. And it’s under $30, which is a total steal for a clock this size.

Um, how darn cute is this vintage black fan? I have one just like this and it’s one of my favorite decor pieces.

You know I love my wooden signs and this large black one is so pretty. I really like how the edges are distressed and faded slightly. I’d hang it on a white wall for a very high contrast, timeless look.

I also found this amazing family name sign in black that I am obsessed with. How gorgeous is this?! I love that you can customize it–this would make a great house warming gift.

I very rarely come across black vintage books, so these are quite the find. This leather bound book set dates back to 1906. I think these would be absolutely gorgeous in a simple vignette with some fresh flowers.

You can’t go wrong with a black ticking stripe throw pillow, am I right?! I actually searched for a while to find this one with wide stripes because I wanted the black to be more prominent. I think it’s gorgeous.

This vintage style blackboard is so darn cuuuuuute. I love this thing and I think it would be perfect hanging in a family command center.

Well there ya have it, ten of my favorite farmhouse style black accents. I hope this was helpful if you’ve been wanting to add a little more black into your decor. And if you’re feeling brave and want to do even more, be sure to check out this post to see how we painted a few of our interior doors black. It’s seriously one of the easiest projects and it makes a HUGE difference. I am still loving our black doors and I can’t wait to do more.

I hope you have the best weekend and I’ll see you back here soooooooon! xo

    I love to incorporate black accents in my decor! These are some awesome items, thanks for sharing. Thrift stores and yard sales are a good place to find decor items that can be painted black as well, especially metal and wood items. I have really good luck using spray paint on items made of metal, like old polished brass decor from the 80’s. I sand any rusted spots, rinse with water and wipe down with some rubbing alcohol before painting. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

    Totally doing the same thing. I have black stair railings, an old stove, and large, black framed mirror. At some point I felt myself getting lost in the black accents, and had to pull back. It was supposed to be just a little bit or contrast and it was taking off in a modern way. I eliminated a few things, took some time, and found my way back to neutrals and a vintage vibe. Still have the best pieces with black, but its secondary. You are so right…do everything from your heart!

  • Home from my hair appointment & I practically begged my husband to stand outside in a freezing (and windy) snow storm to snap a few photos of me. We somehow managed to get one decent shot, but you have to swipe right to see the outtakes #weareprofessionals 🤣🤣 PS: My coat is on major sale right now!! 🙌🏻 #liketkit
  • This afternoon I planned to work during nap time, but instead I spent an hour laying in bed with this girl chatting about how she’s going to have a house right next door to me when she grows up. We talked about how we’re going to be best friends forever & about how she loves the color pink. I snapped this photo to send to my husband & I had no plans of posting it here, but this is a moment I wish I could stay in forever. This is what I live for & it’s these simple moments that fill my soul & put everything into perspective for me. Motherhood is such a gift—the good days, the hard days & everything in between. I’m so grateful for it all. ❤️
  • It was nice enough to have the windows open this afternoon, so I happily soaked in all that sunshine & fresh air. Is it too soon to get excited about spring?!☀️🙌🏻 In other news I’ve been organizing & cleaning like a mad woman today. I just finished our cabinets/pantry & they look SO much better. Next up is the fridge, I’m just working up the courage to go in there. Maybe I’ll leave that job to my husband 🤣🤣 Who else is organizing all the things right now? 🙋‍♀️ #liketkit #LTKhome
  • Someone wasn’t a fan of napping today, so we’re currently listening to Daddy Shark for the 324th time & counting down the minutes til bedtime. But dang that little smile sure is cuuuuuute 😍🙌🏻 #liketkit
  • I spent the day working away in my happy little office & I couldn’t help but think about how lucky I am to do what I love every single day. If you had told me when I first started blogging that I would quit my job & still be doing this three years later I would have laughed. I never thought this would be possible for me, but here I am & it’s happening. God is good 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store! #liketkit
  • What. A. Day. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I just got home from the @oldhousevintagemarket, where I got to spend the whole day browsing antiques & hanging out with one of my favorite humans @lizmariegalvan. We did a fun Q&A session this afternoon with @whitecottagefarm & it was such an honor to sit next to this woman that I’ve admired & respected for so long. ✨
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see us! The whole day was amazing & I’m going to bed tonight with a grateful heart. ❤️🙏
