Thanks so much to Alison for having me over for a visit. I've always loved My Little Happy Place and was thrilled when she asked me to share what makes me happy in our home. Lately, I must say that I've been loving going over to the dark side. Meaning, I love the drama that dark/black paint can give a space.
First up, my front door.
It started out looking like this . . .
I just love the visual punch the black gives the door. We painted both the interior and exterior to make a bigger impact.
Next up is our powder room. It was a ruby red when we moved in four years ago, and I agonized over what to do with it. Paint? Wallpaper? I finally just bit the bullet and went with a very dark blue-gray by Benjamin Moore called Mysterious. Indeed it is . . . and I love it!
Here's a before shot:
So, as you can see, going to the dark side can be a good thing. It was in my house and makes me very happy. Thanks again, Alison, for letting me share my little happy place.
