I just saw a clint yesterday, we are painting the inside water closet chalk board black ( for doodling), then a rice grain color bath, black cabinetry, fauxed silver toned mirrors.... I love this look!
Back in black!
Too chic!

I love, love, love black walls. I can't wait to use it.

So wonderful. How about the kitchen shot? And the nursery? Charming and brave, it could so easily look like a Halloween prop set, but it doesn't at all.

Soooo ready! Painting Avery's big-girl bed (a freebie, French Provincial twin) in deep, glossy navy - will look very chic next to her hot pink Hawaiin floral bedding (imo) ;)

gorgeous!

you don't by any chance know where to find wall lighting like what is shown in the 3rd photo down, do you?

Love it! I can paint a piece of furniture black, but i can't bring myself to go any further...I've wanted to paint the doors in my house this color for quite some time...scared! If you do it and I see it, I may drum up the nerve. :}
BTW..I really like the galoshes on your daughter..grrrreat fashion statement! Thigh high boots are in!

Thank you!

I'm scared. I know there's been lots of beautiful pictures posted lately, but I'm still a scaredy cat.

Sarah said...

I really like the picture of the cabinet full of shoes! So cute!

I've been contemplating adding black beneath a chair rail in my long hall and keeping our light grey above. I may actually do it. I don't know for sure yet. We'll see.

Have yet to try, a little scared I guess. But it looks fabulous if you can pull it off.

I love, love, LOVE black and white! About a month ago i took the plunge and painted my kitchen black, Awesome if i say so myself.I kept everything else white (Sherwin Williams pure white)and i do have open shelving as I have the luck of having a seperate pantry so I do not have the visual weight of upper cupboards it just works beautifully If i can get savvy enough on my laptop I will soon post pic's. Black is sophisticated and unifying plus all colors really pop against a black backdrop, take the plunge you will not be sorry! Love your blog BTW.

Look at those shoes in the cabinet. Lovely!

Every room needs a little dose of black. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to paint the walls black though.
