I have been intrigued for quite a while about the increasing popularity of black toilet paper. It has become "the" chic trend all over Europe in hip hotels, restaurants, and bars and has now jumped the pond and is becoming quite the "in" thing in NYC. The idea of doing a post on the subject matter of toilet paper has prevented me, but then I saw these photos of the same Chinoiserie powder room, one with white toilet paper, the other with black. After Grant Gibson's post today on the subject of colored toilet paper, I couldn't resist. I'm sure many of you might leap on the anti colored toilet paper bandwagon, but doesn't the black look much better in this space? What is sacrosanct about white? Don't most of us enjoy colored sheets and towels? What do you think? Is black chic in the right setting or are you a purist? Made by Renova, it is 3-ply, biodegradable, non-toxic, and entirely recyclable, and comes in black, red, orange, fuschia, green, and turquoise. For more information on what has been called the sexiest toilet paper on earth, check out their website. For some incredible toilet paper wallpaper, check out this post of mine on my other blog Style Redux.
