Dark and Moody

I’m borrowing this title from a line from Emily Clark’s blog today. icon smile Dark and Moody   You may remember I was having a  yearning for dark rich colors last fall.  Today Emily did a post about considering painting her powder room a darker color and it reminded me that before the holidays I pulled the trigger and painted our powder room a dark color which was a big change from its previous light hue:

Now, it looks like this:

So what do you think?  I admit I’m loving it now, but will I feel the same in April?  I was worried about a dark color like this looking flat but I wasn’t wanting a semi gloss because of the rustic styling in here.  So instead I had it painted in flat and then waxed it myself to add depth and movement.  It also makes it easier to wipe clean.  The little kilim was an old rug I had in storage.

You can see the original before and afters of our downstairs bath here.

Thanks for stopping by!
