Accessorising with contrasting colours of the pot and the vivid greens give the right break to the dominant monotony of the black colour.

Using black accessories for cushion covers and latticed cabinets aids to make the room look more dramatic and approachable. With ample lighting and the balance of soft creams and browns makes the room look for regalia.
