You've probably heard of the little black dress, but have you heard of the little black pedigree chart? It's just as classy, just as adaptable, and just as good looking.
We're only partially joking. We love white pedigree charts for their light, simplicity and class and we love the eye-catching attention that boldly color charts draw, but there's just something about this black circle pedigree chart that simultaneously makes a bold statement, keeps it classy and looks refined and purposeful anywhere. Here are five living rooms with totally different vibes that could totally rock the little black pedigree chart.
1. Black and white modernist
It might be obvious that a black family tree is the perfect pairing here--in fact it would be stunning! This room in particular could also rock a pedigree chart with grey or yellow. We're thinking Goldenrod Steel.
2. Boldly colorful
Brightly colored accent walls have been around for a while now, but they're still all the rage (and even more kudos if you're brave enough to paint a whole room this color!) Often, if you go boldly colorful with one aspect of a room, it's best to stick with more neutral colors for the remaining decor (look at them go!) A little black chart would be a total win here. Runner up? I'd probably go with a solid grey pedigree chart.
3. Pink dorm room
Even with all the light color (and pink!) going on in this dorm room, a little black pedigree chart would still look fantastic and be an eye-drawing statement piece. If the owner of this room wanted to stay with pastel we'd definitely choose a pink or mauve ombre chart to maintain the floaty feminine feel.
4. Comfy cozy traditional
Of all the rooms so far, this is the one I'd want to curl on the couch with a book in. Even in this very tradition, comfy, cozy setting the modernity of the little black pedigree chart works without being too start or modern. With everything going on, this room needs a bold chart to avoid it getting totally lost, so as a runner up we'd go with Morning Patriot to bring out that red!
5. Upscale rustic
Is anyone else thinking skiing + hot chocolate + coming back to this room would feel like a little slice of perfection?! The only black in this room seems to be the fireplace doors, but with a gorgeously thick wooden frame the little black pedigree chart would be right a home here. Maybe you shouldn't print it to little though--the scale of this room is something else :) As an alternative for this room, we'd choose a large print of Natural Leaf to accent the wooded feel.
