Black walls.....un-expectedly beautiful!
Probably not for everyone, or every house....but if you have a room with lots of natural light and it's big enough to not feel like a dark cave, black walls are an amazing option for you!

Clearly the Black wall is balanced with a lot of White...which creates the perfect contrast in this environment. The light wide plank flooring, white ceiling, and the open and air-y concept of this room is what make the black wall feel "pretty" instead of "Gothic and dark."  I had a professor in college who said if you want to highlight a design feature pair it with the exact opposite so that the feature becomes a defined focal point.  Fortunately, I've found this rule to be true, time and time again.  Thanks Professor Hinchman!

Of course, you know I'm also loving the traditional furniture and the gorgeous architectural features.  The pops of chartreuse green scattered throughout the room is what makes the room feel complete.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
