My Black Phase
Posted November 16, 2009on:
First of all, sincerest apologies to my faithful readers for the lack of posting here lately. I hope you’ll both forgive me :P.
Between my new job and all the learning of new stuff that it entails, and the absolute nightmare I’ve had trying to get a broadband connection at my new house, it’s been difficult to get online long enough to put a decent post together. So without further ado, here’s my latest installment of design inspiration…
I’ve decided to go for black walls in my living room, despite my concerned friends and family members’ pleas with me to reconsider (my counter-arguments: a) it will not make the room smaller. I was no physics whizz at school, but I have yet to come across paint that can physically alter the dimensions of a room. b) It’s my darn living room :P)
I had one black wall in my last house and I loved it, so I’ve decided to go for full on drama this time. It’s a small room, and the effect I’m going for is very cosy and den-like – I have so far got cream sofas and a pale grey floor, and will eventually have lots of art on the walls. I’d love to hear from anyone who has done this in their own home by the way.
(These are not all living rooms but humour me, it’s the visual impact I’m after)
