5 Killer Rooms That Say Wow with Black Paint

One of my girlfriends came over last night and we got to chatting about--can you believe it--decorating!? LOL

She just purchased a beautiful town home, complete with a marble kitchen and 10 foot ceilings. 

We were talking about how to decorate this nook /separate section of her family room .  Since she wants it to be her office, the back wall would be the perfect place to do something fun and unique.  While we initially discussed wallpaper, I'm now thinking a gorgeous black wall would be killer. I mean killer. 

On that note, check out these rooms that have black walls.. Can't go wrong folks

Thoughts?

Mud Room Marvelous

Hi Everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!
A special shout out to my Dad--we celebrated his birthday this weekend with our entire family. So grateful to have him in our lives! 

Today, and likely because I'm looking at my disorganized mud room, I wanted to focus on getting organized now that school is starting.

In fact, our mudroom door entry to the garage is so small, that it hits the dryer door if both doors are opened at the same time!
Crazy!

I've been dying to create a larger space in there but I  don't have any time right now to build it out and make it a neat place for my kids' coats, shoes, book bags, etc.

Which leads me to this glorious photo of a mudroom (with nice built ins in the family room) by Rebecca Loewke Interiors based in Menlo Park, California.

My favorite feature--the genius idea to have pull out drawers for shoes! Love!

What do you think?

New Ideas For My Daughter's Room

Hi!

So I may have mentioned this before, but my daughter wants to re-do her bedroom, and rightly so.  She needs new paint, a bigger bed, and well, she wants lavender. 

I've been doing research on different ideas for her space and wanted to share. 

Which is your fav?

A pale lavender may be another option? It looks nice with white and green accents.
