Black Walls


Some choices are bold. Some would say painting a living room purple (as I have) is bold, but I’d say that’s just being interesting. But black? Black is bold. I really wish I had the guts to do it somewhere, because my oh gosh does it look crazypants awesome. Here’s some examples of how incredible it can look:

High contrast bathroom:

in a small office space, it balances out all of the other colors/textures to prevent the room from looking too overwhelming.

and my favorite, the clean look of black against rustic touches such as distressed wood and exposed lightbulbs for a unique look:

Would you ever not be scared to paint a wall black? I know you can always paint it back to whatever you want, but black feels permanent. What is the craziest color wall in your house?

  1. We went with what I consider to be bold colours when we painted our home and it was a big, scary step for me. I love how it all turned out however I’m not adventurous enough to paint any wall black.

    • My mom would always pick out fun colors for the walls like pinks and bright yellows and teals, and then she would just sit in the rooms for about a week after we painted it shaking her head like, “what have I done!!” until someone came in our house and complimented the color choices, she was never sure about it!!
