Design Dare: Black Paint

I'm not quite sure what has gotten into me, but since we moved I have been kind of obsessed with the idea of painting our office black. When I first mentioned it to Cliff, he quickly said,  "That's crazy," as did a few friends and family members when I brought it up. So I started scouring Pinterest for photos of spaces with dark walls. And I fell even more in love with it. There's just something so intriguing about it. I've come to think that black walls can be cozy, inviting, warm, even.

I think I have finally won Cliff over to let me go ahead with painting, so I thought I would share some inspiration and the colors we're considering. There are also two amazing wallpaper choices in here. Can't wait to show everyone the space once we've gone dark!
