I would never have dreamed of painting a room black 5 years ago, but now it seems to be the "in" thing! I ran across this awesome diamond patterned rug at Pier one the other day, while shopping for a client, and put it in my cart so I could "think about it." I thought about it and I bought it :) I really wasn't sure where it was going to go but it was on sale and I was just drawn to it for some reason. I knew if it didn't work I could always take it back. It ended up making its way to our master bathroom. I love the way it looks in there but I think it would look even better if the walls were black. I haven't broke this news to my hubby yet, we'll see how it takes it.
I know black is definitely a bold choice for a room but I feel there is enough light to balance it out between our white shower curtain, light colored floor, two windows, and large mirror. I've got plenty of other things I could do at the moment, so maybe I'll save this project for a rainy day.
Here's the rug that's got me thinking....
and some beautiful black rooms to inspire you....
I've had this one bookmarked for a while now...even though the walls aren't black I love the idea of all the black molding and doors...
it's pretty even outdoors!
so what do you think?
