So, the latest issue of Domino features no less than 3 different houses that boast rooms with black painted walls. I am a total fan of black for both dressing and decorating and can be found wearing it, oh, 90% of the time. I love it! It’s classic and timeless (as well as slimming). To do it on four walls, though, I think you really have to know how to pull it off with furniture and accessories that keep it from feeling depressing and Goth-like. One sure way to soften and “pretty” the look of a black wall is to add stenciled pattern. OF COURSE I’m biased, but just look at these lovely wall photos sent by Rachael Goddard of Paint/Design/Decor/Inc.
The Moorish Trellis in a hallway.
The Delicate Floral Damask. How cool is that lampshade??
Yes, I know. This one isn’t black, but the Fortuny stencil sure looks pretty here Thanks for sharing Rachael!
