Paint it black

What is it about black paint that gets me every time?


Whether it's used a little or a lot, I always like it.

Love the black too! Especially with the crisp whites. Swoon!

black is lovely too. such a different vibe than white. saw a house this weekend on a house tour that had painted a lot of the doors/cabinents/crown moulding black. loved it!

i am the same way! i have to fight the urge to pain all my furniture glossy black just so the things that are can keep their impact.

Black on the bannister is one of my faves! Merry Christmas!

Ditto that...as I sit, typing away in my chalkboard black painted office.

My interior designer talked me into going with more big, black statement pieces and I'm thrilled. We recently added an enormous black entertainment center. I was worried about clashing with my all-white trim, but it works!
