Black walls - would you dare to?

What would it take - tall ceilings, tons of light, or just incredible confidence?

If you would, what room - library, powder room, home theater, bedroom?

Yes, no, maybe? Check out the survey - I'm curious.

Homes and Gardens, June 2006

This bedroom, designed by Kelley Proxmire, was in the Spring 2007 Washington Design Center showhouse. I remember it well - it was simply stunning!

The following images are from the Blakes Hotel in London, interior design by Anouska Hempel. We stayed there in July 2005. Interestingly enough, both rooms we stayed in at the hotel featured black walls.

We stayed in this room the last night. You couldn't help but feel a bit regal in it.

This room was my favorite of the two - partly because of this gorgeous Biedermeier bathroom.
