Paint It Black

2012 May 2


I have been obsessed with the idea of dark walls lately. Black, navy, grey, chocolate brown — the deeper and richer, the better.

It looks so elegant and warm and contemporary and…scary.

I may just have to admire from afar for now. And only dream of walls that would disguise crayon marks… 😉

Would you ever “paint it black?”

    We have actually had dark grey walls which I really loved. But what we did was only paint one accent wall this dark color so as not to make the rooms too dark. We did it in our kitchen and bedrooms.

      Ya, we have dabbled like that, too. I would LOVE to do something like this, a whole room, but you need the right space for it, for sure…

    I love a good challenge!

    Actually my office walls are Olympic Paint’s “Black Magic”. People thought I was nuts for painting the walls black (not grey, not chocolate but full on BLACK!) but now that they see them with the Hermes orange accents and rosewood furniture, they’re in love.

    You know what they say…. once you go black….
