Black Walls?


I'm a big fan of black walls.
Naturally, black wouldn't be a wall color most people would consider.
If styled correctly, I think they can be fabulous! 
I love the look of them in an office, and they make a killer backdrop for a gallery wall.

Although I am not sure I would consider painting all the walls in a room black, it is the perfect color for an accent wall.

I also love seeing them used in unexpected places, like a children's bedroom or nursery.
This nursery has always been one of my favorites...

Isn't it surprising how bright and cheery the room is?!

And if I was to put together a nursery using a black wall, it would look a little like this...

A black accent wall paired with bright colors and white accents, I just love it!

So, would you be brave enough to paint a black wall?

  2. So funny, a reader emailed me this weekend saying her 5 year old wants to paint her room black, and asking if she should talk her out of it. I aid I would do a post on how to do a kids room in black!

    I have a black accent wall in my living room, and I LOVE it.

    Great post!

  4. I had my dining room painted black above a chair rail, it's a bright white below a chair rail with a graphic black, white and gray wallpaper inset in panels. I love the way it looks, but I concerned about how long it will take to cover the black when I decide I'm ready for a change.

  7. That nursery has always been on of my favorites too! Did you see how they transitioned it to a big boy room? I'm still in love with it.

  12. I love them! I think I'd be brave enough to try, if I had the right spot! I've got black doors...but I'm actually thinking they need to be a warmer charcoal.
