I’m borrowing this title from a line from Emily Clark’s blog today. You may remember I was having a yearning for dark rich colors last fall. Today Emily did a post about considering painting her powder room a darker color and it reminded me that before the holidays I pulled the trigger and painted our powder room a dark color which was a big change from its previous light hue:
Now, it looks like this:
So what do you think? I admit I’m loving it now, but will I feel the same in April? I was worried about a dark color like this looking flat but I wasn’t wanting a semi gloss because of the rustic styling in here. So instead I had it painted in flat and then waxed it myself to add depth and movement. It also makes it easier to wipe clean. The little kilim was an old rug I had in storage.
You can see the original before and afters of our downstairs bath here.
Thanks for stopping by!
