Go Dark

After stumbling upon that ultra cool nursery with a black painted wall (see post Take Color Overhead below) it sparked our interest in dark walls, very dark walls. We hadn't thought too much about this look previously, because it takes a special client to see black as anything but scary! In reality, though, extremely dark walls don't have to make a room feel small, claustrophobic or dreary - they can look chic and elegant especially when paired with well selected splashes of color.

Black walls transform this white kitchen into a cozy space and give it so much personality. Love how the turquoise blue pops against the black backdrop and keeps the room fresh...

We love how this black built-in shelving shows off the green accents throughout the room as well as the colorful assortment of books it holds...

This bedroom may have a huge black wall, but it is nothing but cheery! The yellow pairing keeps this space very warm and inviting...
