Any rooms painted black?

I did have my upstairs bathroom painted black. But after awhile I found it to be like a cave. The masterbedroom is painted black with a gold stripe. Haven't tired of it yet and maybe someday I will get the curtains and the canopy sewn.

Candice Olsen did a wonderful black living room/dining room makeover where the living room became more of a sitting room/music room. Check out the Divine Design website and the episode is 907.

Kristin Cunnigham (Design on a Dime - HGTV) was on Rachel Ray's show this morning and she has a black room.

There are no images but there is a video segment that shows the room.

Perky thank you. I do love my black. If they are done right they are amazing. I am still trying to get them done right myself. And when I changed the black paint to a light lavendar colour in the bathroom, it only took two coats and no primer. So if you don't like it, it won't take a million coats to cover.

I recently painted my dining room in a color very close to black called Boulder Blues. I'm changing the light fixture to a crystal chandelier and putting up wainscoting in an creamy white...someday. :)
