dark moody bathroom on a whim

On my 2014 To-Do List I mentioned I wanted to paint something black, like a room. :)
 On a whim I went for it today, and shared a peek of our bathroom, you may have seen
 it if you follow me on Instagram. I didn't have a plan to paint the bathroom, but I started
 thinking a moody, cozy space would be perfect for fall and winter. Before I knew it it was
 2:00 and I hadn't changed out of my pjs that I wore to the bus stop at 6:30 but my
 bathroom was looking nice and moody. I chose Behr Mined Coal because that's what I
 had in my stash, it's a dark charcoal. I'll share next week, I still have another coat to go!

My talented friends have a love for dark and moody too, and I'm so excited to share
 their beautiful dining rooms are both in the running for
  Apartment Therapy's Color Contest 2014 in the Dark category!
It's fun to check out the other categories as well, and vote for your favorites here
 I've featured both of their rooms on my blog and LOVE the different vibe of each one.  



Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

I love both of those dining rooms and cannot wait to see your bathroom all done. I just did a color consultation today and picked a deep charcoal for a basement family room. I love it in my own basement, and every single day I am so glad I painted my bedroom a dark color! There is something so intriguing about dark and moody!! Happy weekend and happy painting, my friend :)

Beautiful rooms. Can't wait to see how the bathroom turns out.

Pam I love your room! Would you ever paint a powder room this color if it doesn't have a window??

Julie Reinwald said...

I have always loved Dana's dining room and Cassie's is pretty too! I can't wait to see your bathroom. You've got me thinking now, too. I was planning on painting one wall in our powder room black, but now I'm wondering if I should go more soft black or charcoal and also if I should do the entire room. Lots to consider. Happy Painting, Pam!
