On my mind Monday Black bedroom inspiration

Hello and happy Monday.  On my mind this Monday is black bedroom inspiration.  So I thought I would share it with you all.  Black happens to be my favorite color.  And when  I saw the bedroom in this new apartment I’ve just moved into, I thought if the landlord let previous tenants paint this bright cherry red then surely he will let me go black.  And he said you can paint any color.  He might regret those words but I heard them.  😉 So I will finally get to have a fabulous black bedroom.  But this is what I’m starting out from.

you can follow my pinterest board for the new apartment here…
Follow MakinMyAptaHome’s board Apt2015 MMAH on Pinterest.
As you can see there is some awesome inspiration in this board.  So the beginning of the change has started and the walls have gone black.  With help from Sherwin Williams black majic flat paint the walls are now black.  The red corner you see is where my desk area.  And this section will go a much lighter color.


Please note this was only step 1 of the paint to walls process.  If you check out my inspiration board on pinterest above you might get some idea of what the next step will be…

You can comment below and let me know what you think next steps will be…

  1. I never thought about going black with my bedroom, but it totally makes sense. Dark colors can help you quiet your mind and get ready to sleep. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your re-do!

    I really, really like the red. I was just telling my husband that I wanted to paint our bedroom that color.

    I always wanted to go black with my bedroom when I was younger but I Never did it. Now my son wants a black chalkboard wall and I thought it would just be so dark but after seeing your room, I’m considering it.

    You might be painting you headboard white now via your PInterest board. My SIL’s favorite color to decorate with is black as well.

    You are a brave brave soul! I like black a lot especially in my wardrobe but I don’t know if I would ever have the guts to paint a room in it! I am dying to see how your’s turns out.

  6. Kim says:

    Wow, black is such a bold choice for a bedroom. But I bet you will get lots of sleep in there. lol

  7. Wow, you are so bold in your decorating choices! I love color, but more bright and cheery colors. My bedroom is a cornflower blue, I love it because it’s so relaxing and mellow!

  8. Jennifer H says:

    I think a dark bedroom could really help someone sleep sounder as it keeps the room dark. I personally love lighter shades, but that’s just me. 🙂

    How fortunate that you were able to paint the walls whatever pleased you. The black and red are a great combination.

  10. Allison says:

    I’ve never thought about going black with my bedroom because I live in a tiny NYC apartment and the black will make it look even smaller! But there are some great inspiration pictures on your Pinterest board!

  11. Virginia @thatbaldchick says:

    I’d say your headboard is next. Will it coordinate with the dresser? I love it!

  12. Liz Mays says:

    I’d love to see the transformation. I’m liking the two huge windows in the bedroom!

  13. Trisha Haas says:

    I think this is quite an undertaking. I’m glad you’re having fun with this project.

  14. Sara P. (@SensiblySara) says:

    I don’t think I could do black walls! But I am intrigued to see how it turns out!!

  15. Carolann says:

    Wow, I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I’m such a color person, but this looks interesting to me! Love the headboard!

  16. Shell Feis says:

    I love it! I love black everything- I don’t think it would work on my walls, but only because ALL of my furniture is black, so it would just all blend in!

  17. I love black furniture but you are bold going black on the walls! Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup last week. Pinning to our linkup board and hope you joined us again this weekend.
