CURRENT OBSESSION: Dark Walls

A lot of people think painting a house is such a daunting and permanent task, but I think it is the best way to freshen up a place and really make it your own. Paint sets the mood and becomes the palette for all of your decor, so why settle for something that someone else picked?

My house is a mix of neutrals and dark greiges, but my current obsession is dark walls. You may remember a while back my sister took the plunge and painted her bathroom navy (check it out HERE), well the pictures don't even do it justice. It's calming, modern, lively, and sleek all at the same time. Ever since, dark walls everywhere have been catching my eye. Here are some of my favorites:

Afraid to commit???

Try these baby-steps instead:

  • Pick one accent wall to paint

  • Choose a room or area with lots of windows to break up the paint
  • Pick a room that isn't a main focal point (bathroom, laundry room, etc)
