You know how I always say I love a room with white walls? No doubt. My preference. Absolutely.
Is it possible that I could also love equally as much a rooms with dark walls? Rich black walls or enchanting navy blue wall paint (sometimes with a little gloss) always works for me.
Loving the black kitchen above with the dark cabinetry, the cobblestone like paver field tiles used on the floor, the white beadboard ceiling, the farmhouse table...everything about it.
The wonderful sultry baths below also work for me.
It is weird...even though these spaces are dark...they seem bright to me...is that possible? Even cheerful! Hmmm....interesting. Maybe it is the fact that each of these spaces has either white ceilings, molding or a light floor or accent wall added in for contrast - two toned rooms. Love them!
What do you think about rooms with dark paint on the walls or cabinets? Work for you or not?
P.S. It is raining again here in Los Angeles. I have no home phone service due to the rain...it has been out for a week! Arghhhhhhh! Help. I hope you all on the east coast are surviving the weather!
