We built this house about 5 years ago, and whenever I want to change something, my husband’s response is, “We had this house custom built. We can’t just paint over things now.” It’s not the comment that bothers me, but it’s the fact that he gets into my head! Maybe he’s right. My dilemma? My kids’ bathroom.
I went with all white, because well, it’s my absolute favorite color. I just love a white room. However, I’ve really been getting into black cabinets now, and I love how it breaks up the room a bit. Here’s the bathroom. Keep in mind, my camera is crappy.
And here it is without the bath mat. Grrr. I usually have a long, black rug in there (washing it) and I have my kids names embroidered on towels that go on the black scrolly towel bar (drying them).
While the decor isn’t what I’m looking for in the pictures below, I DO love the black cabinets. Take a look.
I also love the black framed mirror. I see it done on HGTV all the time, and they act like it’s so easy it doesn’t even deserve a tutorial. Uh…hello? I need a tutorial on how to make a peanut butter sandwich. I like the look.
This is not a bathroom (uh, can you tell?), but this is one of my all-time favorite kitchens (Rate My Space). I am madly in love with every single detail of it. It will be my inspiration for our bar area in the unfinished basement that will probably never get finished unless we win the lottery.
So, what do you think? It’s been 5 years, it’s just a little paint, black is still a classic color–right? Am I messing with a good thing? Do I need to take the decorative plunge?
