Monday Morning Inspiration – The Dark Side

Well, the weather if finally changing over here (Yippee!!!  Hey, 80 degrees is a cold front…) and so I’m continuing to channel my inspiration from the moody cooler months.

With October (and Halloween) literally just around the corner, I thought it would be only appropriate for today’s inspiration to focus on the dark side of things.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen.

I’m talking about black.

I actually love using black as a wall color, but I know that the idea can be really frightening for some people.

So hopefully today I can show that black can be an amazing accent (Paired with a crisp white ceiling and moldings, or other white walls…  Um, yes please).

It’s an unexpected way to up the chic factor and set apart an interior as something special.

So, my friends, don’t be afraid of the dark.

    Caden has always wanted his room to be black. He still gets upset today when we talk about the color of his room because it is not black. Perhaps one day (when all my moulding and trim are white and not stained wood) I will be adventurous enought to give him his black room.
