Christmas has come and gone and we have been given a few days to reflect on the past year and ponder the choices we will make for 2014. For me this also includes design choices. All year my brain is churning out ideas. Some good, some bad and some just feel risky. Well, this year I'm going to take some risks. Why not?! You only live once! For some time I have wanted to do a room in black or a deep navy. I've always hesitate because 1) Really dark paint requires patience and a lot of prep work to be done properly. 2) You must be very thoughtful of the decor in a dark room for it to be truly elegant and I just haven't had the time for that. No more excuses! This year I'm going to make it happen. Here are a few examples that I put together for a little inspiration. This look is like a fabulous lbd (little black dress).... Always classic, sophisticated and never out of style.
What design idea do you love, but are timid to incorporate into your home?
