A Case for Black – Walls!

*photo: Adore Home Magazine August/September 2011

Ok – so you’re thinking I’m nuts,  and a few months ago, I would have been on that bandwagon with you.  I thought black walls were totally a no-go in my place – or honestly in the real homes of anyone I know.

But this photo above from Adore Home Magazine’s Aug/Sept 11 issue really does it for me – and I could see it done in my own house. I know the ‘black’ wall is technically chalkboard paint, but I think even a regular black would be very pretty.

I’ve put benjamin moore’s ‘black satin’ in the below interpretation of this office

but I already have an office, which I love… but I do have a guest bedroom which I don’t love.  It has been on my list of things to get done since I moved into this house, but since sometimes it is slow going,  the room still remains untouched. I decided to turn this inspiration into a bedroom.  If I keep the black wall (just one or two) along with the birch wallpaper and white washed floors, I still love the result.

What are your thoughts? Would this be a ‘guest getaway’ you’d like to stay in? Did I win you over with the black wall?

 

Have a WONDERFUL Tuesday!
