GOING DARK

home // May 22, 2012

When it comes to my home, I’ve always gravitated towards bright whites accented by pops of color. Or somewhere in the middle with a light gray paint (my living room), but I’ve never gone any farther than that. Lately, however, I’ve fallen in love with these dark walls I’ve been seeing everywhere. When I moved into my new apartment a few months ago, I actually experimented with a black paint in the powder room. It’s a such a small space, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong (baby steps). I’ve loved it so much that I think I’m ready do this color in a much bigger way. I really like the idea of using it in a library/study like Aerin Lauder. The black paint adds instant warmth to this room making it feel comfortable and inviting. Can’t you see yourself curling up in here with a good book? I also adore Miles Redd’s kitchen. The black lacquered cabinetry makes the kitchen looks so glamourous. What do you think?
