I had seen a few examples of dark color in a small space, and decided it was a risk I was willing to take. I am so glad I did! The color makes the walls fade away, and because I used this dark color in my boy's room, I find that the bright colors of their toys and accessories pop next to the walls.

A fresh work by Banksy appeared in Folkestone, England this week. Entitled Art Buff, the stencil depicts an elderly woman listening to an audio tour while looking at an empty plinth. The work coincides with the town’s two-month-long Folkestone Triennial.

Overall it's quite dramatic, but I love the white elements and pops of turquoise and green which offset the rest of the room!
