I {heart} my bedroom wall.

Sing it with me:

My black bedroom is bananas!


It’s not done yet- just beginning the American Express funded makeover, but daaaaaaaaaaaamn it’s looking fine! The black wall (Martha Stewart paints color Florence) is perfection! I’ve never been so delighted with the way a paint color has turned out in my whole career.

Helllllllllooooo luvvaaahhh!


Oliver got ROBBED at the groomer yesterday- his new haircut is so hideous even he is embarrassed by it.  But not too embarrassed to get out of my photo.


When the long white drapes go in it’s going to look amazeballs.


Just wait until you see the grand finale of the installation. I DIE.


  1. Beautiful!!! Do you know if your floors are gloss or semi-gloss? I am about to sand/stain my floors and I am really loving yours!

  2. LOVE IT! So proud of you. If I don’t paint something black asap I might die!
    Great, great job!

  3. WHAT a GREAT, Great wall!!!!! I love it :) I am a firm believer in black accent walls, your choice of paint was perfect!!! I still cant get over how amazing that Ikea print is. amazing…

  4. Oooooh, lurve lurve lurve. We painted our bedroom very similar to that a few months back (totally stole the idea from Three Men and a Lady’s gorgeous room), and we elll-oh-veee-eeee it. I am DIGGING your giant Eiffel Tower print, tis dope. Cannot wait to see the finished room!!

  5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Where did you get your nightstands from? I’m looking for ones that size!

    Love the bench…amazing!

  6. How beautiful! It all works together so well. The bed looks so inviting and comfortable, where are your bed linens from?

  7. I’m amazed!!! It’s gorgeous! I really didn’t know how much a black wall could make things stand out. I showed my hubby the before pic of the room and now and he also said, WOW! Great job!

  8. this post = hilarious!! i am dying 1) laughing and 2) over your new bedroom. you make that black paint look goooood! and oliver is still pretty dang cute :)

  9. Behind in my reading…love this! I painted one wall in my dining room an “almost black” (Graphite by Benjamin Moore)…wish I had done it sooner! The bedroom is really wonderful! Congrats!

  10. Re sconces…had a similiar problem…in my case the solution was paint the same as the wall colour, except in gloss, change the shades…voila! Not perfect…but it solved a really ugly problem for me!
