These past couple of months, I’ve been swamped with client projects and pillows, but I have a lot on the way for the blog. I’m so excited to finally reveal photos of my recent eclectic dining room project that I’ve been working on for over a year!
The before photo is a bit sad:
To transform this room, we changed from carpet to slate floors, removed wallpaper, painted the walls, installed custom draperies, changed lighting, and brought in some gorgeous furniture, art, and accessories.
Here’s what the room looks like now:
Painting the walls black and white was the jumping off point for this entire space. The carpet was replaced for these beautiful charcoal slate floors and is probably the update in the room that is my favorite. The black Restoration Hardware table pulls the black from the wall and into the room. It has an extension leaf to seat 10 people. I installed the mirrors to help reflect light around the room. They were in another part of my client’s home, but we felt like would be a better fit in the dining room. (more…)
Black walls (or other really dark walls) have a way of making a small space feel more cozy. With good lighting, black walls can make a space look larger, too.
Check out these small spaces that wear black walls well…
Now you see why I LOVE black walls! The POWER OF PAINT is amazing! If you’d like to learn more about using paint to transform a room and my step-by-step process to decorating, join my virtual decorating workshop.
How do you feel about black walls in small spaces? Do you think black walls should be reserved for larger rooms? Let me know in the comment section below!
