I currently have 11 paint colors on my dining room walls just waiting for me to fall in love with one of them. Each time I think I've decided, I'm pulled in a different direction. One I think I've ruled out is black. High gloss black. My walls aren't the perfect smooth texture I'd need to pull it off and with windows on only one wall, I'm feeling like I've got to pass on it. Too bad, because I've been wanting to go there for a couple of years. This home is a total knuckle biter for me. The way that black and white are woven throughout the spaces is so fabulous to me. Oh, and does anyone else love those looooooooooong taper candles? I'm not even a tapered candle fan, but I love the drama of them here.
