Loving Dark

It's not a secret that I love white.  My house is full of white, the walls, furniture, kitchen, etc.  However, I've been drawn to dark features lately.  Charcoals, blacks, chalkboard colored walls are calling me.  Here are some lovely examples of what I mean.

This nursery is amazing.  The chalkboard wall is so perfect and mixed with yellow...well, you know my love of yellow.

I'm loving what a statement these dark features can make.  I may have to add some into my house.

I'm the same as you! White house, white kitchen etc. I think living in the hot climate of Phoenix makes me enjoy the cool feeling of white but I do adore the bold richness of black. I had a black wall in my last house, loved it. I've been thinking about a giant schoolroom type chalkboard in our dining room. Husband isn't on board just yet :)

i am a very light person when it comes to what i surround myself with, but i love dark in small doses- bathrooms and closets and places that i don't always see! but i love the look dark wall provide- moody sultriness... so awesome!

You're so right - we're seeing lots of black and dark woods. I like it. A friend from one of my classes was asking an opinion on black appliances - I said do it! We'll probably all want black appliances in 5 years.

I love the look of dark too. Since I am renting, I can't really do too much painting (or scratch that, I could, but I don't want to paint it all back when/if we move), but I love the stylish edge it gives to a space. Especially with light accesories (bedding, dressers, etc.). And you and I share an affinity for yellow!!! :) Again, I am in love with your style...completely!

I totally agree with you black need to use very carefully in the interior. I was always scare fully black interior. But I love the combination of light walls and dark floors it very beautiful and elegant
