Is Black the new Black?

As you know, I love looking at HGTV's "Rate My Space" (What happened to that show anyway?) and came across this modern black and white master bathroom. I don't think I would ever have the guts to paint any of our rooms black, however, this is a pretty amazing space. Very well done. I have also seen a few home decor bloggers paint their spaces black like Bryn did here. What are your thoughts? Is black back?


  1. I love black rooms. I went into an old house and they had a black dining room with a white fireplace and wide moulding. It looked beautiful. I am going to paint my two story mantel in black. It will really stand out in the room.

  2. This is amazing!!!

  3. Oooh, I love this! Thank you for sharing it :)
    I was feeling brave one day and painted just the ceiling in my closet black. We figured that it wouldn't be "too much" because it was a tiny space with neutral walls and black accents...but 2 days later we bought a can of primer and painted over it!

  5. Love the black and white rooms but I am so scared it would be too dark or something.

  6. I recently saw a decorating show on HGTV where they painted it black but it was a big room that gets lots of natural light--I think that helps. They used splashes of orange in contrast (a little contemporary for me but nonetheless, cute). I like this room as I love the toile print that goes well with it!
