Paint Color Portfolio: Black Bedrooms

There may be nothing more daring than painting your walls black. I was surprised to find such a wide variety of blacks, from deep dark greys to blue toned blacks. Painting your walls such a deep hue works especially well in sun-filled rooms where the black can reflect beautiful light. It can also turn a room very masculine, so it works best balanced with textural and more feminine details. Here are some shades to get you inspired!
