Designer Spotlight - Christina Cole Designs a High Contrast Industrial Loft for an Avid Art Collector

I legit think Elle Decor is NAILING it right now.  It's just like ALLLLLL the black accents, and I'm obsessed.  Speaking of... my love for the all black accents got me a commission! I'm working with the AMAZING Sherry Hart of Design Indulgence to create a custom piece for her room in the Atlanta Magazine Home's Pinewood Forrest showhouse this summer.  I've followed Sherry for years since we started our blogs around the same time, and I've always loved her style.  I finally met up with her in person to discuss the colors for the piece (neutral- duh), and we're like design soul mates, which is awesome.  

Anyway, in looking for a home to feature today, I found Christina Cole's work on Elle Decor, and it stopped me in my tracks.  She designed this home for art collector Will Lansing, an industrial space with lots of black and white + art is LITERALLY as good as it gets IMO.  I really really love the contrast of the white oak floors against the dark walls.  Especially in the bedroom (painted Sherwin-Williams "Black Magic.")  These photos are taken by the wildly talented Alyssa Rosenheck, who is one of the very best in the the business right now.  You can find her work here and her instagram here.  She's such an inspiration, and if you're an avid follower, you may know her work for the Sean Anderson Post.  It's SO good.
