Here’s a question for you.
It was prompted by last week’s Home Etc favourite — Karen from the blog Well I Guess This is Growing Up — who asked:
‘Would you consider black walls for a child’s bedroom?’
My swift answer — without thinking too hard about it — was YES! Absolutely.
I love dark walls; we have the ubiquitous Farrow and Ball ‘Down Pipe’ in a couple of rooms in our home — as well as an inky dark navy on the walls of our bedroom.
I sometimes find a darker shade far more restful than it’s paler counterpart.
But it was interesting reading Karen’s findings, via a poll she’d conducted, asking people their thoughts on black walls in kids’ rooms.
A lot of people seemed horrified!!
I’ve been planning on making over the twins’ nursery this year and black walls are a strong possibility — I still haven’t made firm plans, so don’t hold me to that — but I don’t understand why dark paint in a child’s room should cause such a hostile reaction.
Especially when it looks as sweet as this!
I think it makes colours sing and brights pop!
What are your thoughts? Would you paint a child’s room with black paint?
If you need to be convinced further, pop over and have a read of Karen’s post.
