I Want to Paint it Black.

I have been saying for the longest time that I want to paint (or paper) a wall in my new home black. I get odd looks, and of course the accompanying, "ohhhh" with a worried, confused look. I'm not saying the whole stinking house...just a wall, people. There is nothing wrong a little bit of edge in your home. Keeps it from getting stale. A little rocker chic craziness, without the hangovers.

p.s.- Thanks so much to everyone who left such kind words and support after our loss. I can't tell you how much it has meant.

I'm loving the wallpaper in the first photo, and that high molding is really classy. I say go for it!

I love black. I would have a black dining room with white trim if I didn't have black furniture. Two houses ago, I painted my son's room black on the bottom, white chair rail, and khaki on top. When I told my mom and friends what I was going to do, they all thought I was crazy. In the end, I was right. It looked great. We built a house 3 yrs. ago and I had creamy glazed cabinets and the house that we just built and moved into has espresso cabinets. I love black. I would like a black mantle. Can you tell I like black?

I think it's awesome. Very modern and edgy. Only brave people can have an open mind with such a paint color. But I love it, I think it's a grand idea.
