My Little Black Wall

I know for a fact, I'm not the only one obsessing over black walls. Lets just say that I covet them, and I'm counting the days until I get to do this at our home. As much as us girls understand the importance of the little black dress, I use the same philosophy on the "little black wall". They are the perfect backdrop to any accessory, and you can pretty much pair it with any color. Do you guys agree with my "LBD" philosophy or do you have one of your own? Please, tell. I'm dying to hear your thoughts.


P.S If you have not entered the giveaway make sure to do so by tonight. Good Luck ladies and have a wonderful day.

I love it! I have a black wall in my office and pantry - both are painted with chalkboard paint - so it serves double-duty (chic and functional/fun).

These are such chic examples. I love it paired with crisp white, and a pop of color, like the coral or yellow chair. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to do it though!

I don't have the cajones to do it but I always love it when I see them in design mags. I especially love how it looks against great architectural details...makes it modern without being stuffy.

Love black walls! I agree totally that it is the perfect "canvas" for adding any color to a room. Thanks for the great images!

I would love to paint a wall black...I am running out of walls with all the paint colors I want to use!!

This is when you need a BRAVE client...are any walls in your new space going to be painted black?

I love it - so unique and everything in front of it "pops". Very bold.

I never thought black wall could look this beautiful. I love it. Maybe I should try painting our bathroom wall black.

Black looks very elegant and masculine. I love it! It’s like gothic plus sophistication.

I am thinking about painting our master black. I have been wanting to for a while but I think my husband thinks I have lost my mind!
