But JENNA LYONS did it! JENNA LYONS!

She is our queen! She paints her son's toenails! J. Crew! Late-adapter lesbianism! Dark gray nurseries! Something about domino!

Complete agreement. Except black lacquered chests of drawers are pretty cool. Mary

In the photos of "Whittemore House" black is still doing it for me - but the others: agreed, yuck.

Ha, they look like old coffee houses, not much like Jenna Lyons. But, I do think the toenail comment was funny, and am surprised at you, Decorno, for not posting about that whole stupid controversy.

I prefer a room with a touch of black.

I just discovered your blog and I am furious at you. I now have to spend the next 2 days reading every single post. It's fab and you are so freaking funny and clever. No, really.

I was just at The Ace Hotel and Stumptown Coffee and I have to say I love the spaces, details and materials.
Go tell Roman and Williams black paint is over.

I have never fully been a fan of the use of black in interior design. Its not I don't like it but its a hard colour to get used to.
