Paint It Black… Or White

May 24, 2011

Hello all!
This is what my living room has looked like every morning for the past week:

I am in the process of painting all of the wooden furniture in my home.  We have a lot of really great secondhand pieces given to us by family, but unfortunately none of them really match, as they were taken from different rooms and different homes.  I’m painting the furniture in the kitchen, breakfast nook, and bathroom white and the furniture in the front room and bedroom black.  I love the way rooms with a simplified color palette look, especially when they have some bright pops of color added.  It’s instant sophistication without being too stuffy.  Here are some inspiration photos, all from the always wonderful Lonny.

*Credit all, Lonny

Obviously from the photo above of my chaotic, paint filled front room, my home has a loooooong way to go before it reaches the glam-luxe state of the homes featured in Lonny, but that’s what inspiration is for, right?  And this site is all about chronicling that progression, from one coat of paint to the final glossing.

    That library could not be any more perfect. It is so classic and lovely, I just wanted to sit there and thumb through pages.

    Kelly- I know! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a place like that to curl up for hours undisturbed?
