i love black.
i love wearing black (especially now that i am blonde again!), the business cards for my new venture are going to be black, the outside of my house is heading towards being black, carrie is black.
hmm,.. too much black?
today, i am re-painting our breezeway black. i painted it not so long ago in porters banana-leaf. i liked it for about 10minutes.
it is just too much colour to live with.
it doesn't reflect the rest of the house. calm grey and black tones everywhere, and then 'hello green, you are hurting my eyes!'.
this is my friends house. (i won't mention her name being the internet and all. i will come back and rectify if she is ok with it!).
this is honestly the most divine space i have ever seen.
the chalky, black perfection of the walls. paired back with whitewashed floors and woodwork and mixed up with natural elements of leather, feathers and linen.
to die for.
so, today, i am going to paint our breezeway in a similar tone.
peaceful, calm space here we come!
