It all Comes Down to Black or White

So, I have been working on Hannah's Room for a few weeks now, and it's nearly complete. . .

But while I show you around her little room. . .

I would like to get your opinion on a little matter. . .

. . . of black versus white.

I believe that a little black accent goes a long way in creating contrast--just look at my kitchen!

But my plan for this room was light and airy, crisp and white, warm and cream. . .with a hint of turquoise.

And I think I have succeeded for the most part.

But I still have some left over remnants of her previous decor, which was all red white and black (too bad I didn't take any before pictures of her room before we stripped it bare).

Note the pillow on the bed, the curtain rod, the nightstand, the lamp, the picture frames.

Also, the new dresser has antiqued silver knobs that sort of come across black.

Does it distract? Should I paint the rod, table etc? Or keep the little accents of black?

Either way, I am in love with this room. . . and that bed (which she practically needs a step stool to get into) is divinely comfortable.

You should have seen her all snuggled up in there last night in her light and airy white night gown. . .

I still need ideas for what to put above the bed and what to put on the shelves (that was me throwing things up there to get them off the dresser--not actually me arranging anything).

What do you think?

hmmm...I can't decide on the curtain rod. I will have to see it in person! LOVE the room! Super cute!

Personally, I like the contrast. But sometimes it's harder to tell in pics than in person.

Wow, I love her room!!! I was thinking the black was ok, but as I looked again at the pictures, I liked the ones with out the black in them MUCH better!!! Will you please come to my house and give me inspiration like this?

Wow! So lovely! I've heard it said that everyone needs a little black in a room to "ground" it...whatever that means.lol
I really like the black rod, I have an all white bedroom but my curtain rod is black and I like it.
Happy New Year to you!
