Paint. Everything. Black.

*This post was originally published on March 30, 2016.

Who in the world would want to paint an entire room black? I know, I know. For decades, it was nearly impossible to picture painted black walls without punk rock posters taped to them and an angsty teenager sitting within them. I get it. But, I'm here to tell all of my neutral wearing, sunshine loving friends: Black paint is for you too.

It sounds scary, but this all black office is proof that a dark painted room can be bright and happy too- and this office has all the feels. I want to paint everything black now! Just like in a room that is all white, adding warm wood tones can really finish off the space and make it feel collected. The antique wedding table we used as a desk paired with a few natural colored accessories and the rattan desk chair really softens the room and helps it remain cozy.

The paint color used here is Sherwin Williams' Tricorn Black. When choosing a color for this project I wanted to make sure to select a true black with no hints of blue or green. Mission accomplished! Now, that's not to say that green isn't black's best friend. As you can see, throwing in that green plant life can really bring life to a space and make it feel fresh and comforting.

Now. Don't be scared, and go paint something black!
