i didn't realize black walls could create such a versatile backdrop. would never had thought to add so much color, as in the marie claire maison pic.
all of these are stunning. i am truly inspired.

you know, this look is really starting to grow on me. a year or 2ago, i would've freaked out at the thought of black walls.

Love the big silver tub! Would love to soak away the day in there!

The bathrooms really are jaw-droppingly dramatic and beautiful!

I soooo need a black room in my new place.

Wonderful collection of images! Black in a bathroom is my favorite. It's such a delightful surprise and instantly says luxe.

These are great. I love the bedroom by Jordi Canosa and the bathroom with the yellow chair...swoon.

I have been fantasizing about black walls for a couple of months now. I just convinced a client to use them in their kitchen...I have been trying to justify redoing one of the rooms in our house so that i can use them on our house too. Thank you for the inspiration.

I feel I should like this idea, but I'm sure I'd find black walls depressing on a permanent basis :(

Oooh, tempting.

How about a blog on black houses?!

I saw one in Vancouver and I think it's just smashing.

I also like homes that have weathered cedar shakes as their exterior walls.

this settles it! I have been wanting a black wall in my house and I must do it now, these are fabulous rooms!

love the House To Home chandelier over the bath. i wanted to do that with ours when we moved in, even went as far as purchasing the chandelier, but my husband said that it was too dangerous having it over a tub - that i'd electrocute myself. grrr. chandelier is sitting in my attic waiting for my father to help me install it in my little library/office room instead.

Who would have thought! My favourite is the one with the colourful patchwork blanket on the bed!

Sexy. Love the lattice print black-on-black in the bathroom. Wonder how my landlord would feel about this...

How funny! I'm all about black walls right now - a timely piece for me. Great inspirational images to help convince my boyfriend!

I think you can safely say it's a 'sexy' color :-)
