Black Walls = Sexy, Sophisticated & Chic
I included the photo directly below in Monday's post and my mom and sister both went crazy over the black walls, which kind of surprised me (my mom even mentioned painting her powder bath black while my dad's out of town...and my sister decided to talk her husband into doing it for theirs!). For most of us, the thought of painting a wall black, or an entire room for that matter, isn't something we'd ever even consider! I mean, black walls? Won't that make a room feel dark and depressed? Well after scouring the Internet for examples of black interiors, it's quite the contrary. Black paint - matte or high-gloss - can take a space to another level, adding depth and warmth; a feeling of luxury and sophistication. This is what I call designing outside of the box! It requires confidence and a leap of faith to actually do it...but when done right, it may just be one of the best design decisions you've ever made! How do you feel about black walls? Would you ever?
