Black bedroom gets some pops of color

I’ve showed you all my black bedroom inspiration.  Now the black bedroom gets some pops of color.  On a wall in the nook for my desk.  Inside my closet.  And even my Tiff dresser got a new coat of paint.  I love Tiffany blue and get any paint that is close in color to it.  With black & white being my favorite color combination I love the way this light colored blue pops off it.  I like that even though I have added this color to my room it is in small pops.  Heck you can’t see the closet or the wall nook unless you are in them.  I think that’s pretty cool.  Let me show you.


You can see my desk nook in red above but now it looks like this.

Black bedroom pops of color


I’ve already shared with you all how that dresser I like to call my Tiff dresser.  Got a new coat of paint.  I’m still loving this curbside rescue 3 years later.  [Tweet “Just goes to prove one man’s garbage can totally be another woman’s treasure.  😉 “]TIFFDRESSER

To give the closet some color I used the same paint.  Just removed my clothes and gave it two quick coats and by the end of the day it was ready to fill with my clothes again.  Now when I open my curtains I get a nice pop of color.


I added a lamp to my closet.  Not for just for while I was in there painting but to keep in there.  I love how when I open curtains it’s light and bright in there.  At night it gives my closet a nice warm glow thru the curtains.  I’ll show you.


All these changes I’ve made with paint I had leftover.  So I haven’t spent a dime to make these changes and I think it’s looking pretty awesome.  Cha ching saving money by using what I have win win.

As for the desk nook in my bedroom, here’s how it has changed.


Here’s a look from my bedroom door.  You can see how you can’t see all the pops of color but they are there.  😉  And I love that.


Of coarse I’ve already started to decorate that nook but will tell you more about that soon.


So tell me what is your favorite change in this room?
