Black rooms ... I've seen some beautiful ones, and secretly admire those daring enough to cloak their walls in the soft shadowy hues of eventide -- Personally, I'm not that brave. Grey is as far towards black as I've dared to go. I must say, however, that sometimes, I wish I'd venture a bit farther into the darkness, especially when I see stunning bathrooms like this one -
I just don't know if I could go through with it. So, maybe not an entire room, but rather touches of black? ... I can do that -- especially when it's softened and worn by time and perhaps the elements - like the piece in this gorgeous room featured on Shawn's blog, Country French Antiques.

I'm going to start with my own huge armoire - I have some gorgeous antique hardware in tarnished chunky silver that would be great on the drawers and maybe two of those large crystal knobs for the doors... I may cheat and paint it in worn shades of grey.
I told you
... I'm afraid of the dark.
