black walls

The lovely Marianne from Haven & Home posed the question "Is Black the new Pink?" And then went on to show some lovely fabrics she scored with black as the main color. I would have to say YES! However, my husband wears nothing but black and I have a closet loaded down with it as well. If I'd let him, he'd probably have our living room painted like this, living up to his rockstar image, of course.

Marianne also posted this picture of a black wall...



...and I could definitely see my husband and I being the odd couple to put this in our child's room. I love it!!

So, I pass the question along.. Would you be so daring as to put a black wall in your home?

  3. YES!! I love it and I think it looks amazing. I have asked the BF about 100 times if I can paint our kitchen black and I get shot down every single time. If your husband would let you I's say go for it!! I'll be very jealous, but happy for you :)

  5. I wish I had the guts to do it but I don't think I do. I did have our our tiny powder room painted a very dark gray when we moved in but that was as close as I got. And that's now a hot pink(!)

  6. Oh my goodness :) It would take a lot of mustering of courage for me to paint my wall black :) But black wall paper and trim, a little easier :) I love that numbered wall, though... hmm, I'll have to rethink this!

  7. I would have first said no- but when I saw Camila's (High-Heel Foot in the Door) black and white bathroom, I changed my mind. So maybe!!

  8. Black walls are very rockstar! I am so glad you liked my post! I LOVE the number on the wall. I really think I am going to have a black bedroom one day, but it would be inviting not scary!
