Despite the fact that it is a black room, our newly remodeled office/craft room is very bright and fun! I spend a lot of time in this room blogging and doing projects so I wanted it to be a fun place to hang, and I think it’s mission accomplished.
The apartment I’d like to have is the following: girly and pretty with soft colours — what a dream. Unfortunately, my apartment looks closer to a man cave than Jenni’s pretty apartment. How do I work around these comfy, yet quite masculine, black leather couches to create something girly?
Tabatha, of Turn Right at Lake Michigan, has been working HARD on her master bedroom — starting from the studs up — and it’s finally finished. It’s dark and beautiful and FULL of gothy inspiration. But wait until you see the black bathroom action. Now this is how one does a BLACK home decor…
Our copyeditor Caroline created a gorgeous moment on and around her vanity. But I also had to throw in a bonus bed moment because it’s the perfect lesson in how you can make your bedroom dark and goth-y yet still pretty and girly.
I painted my kitchen nook the other day! My mini-kitchen-in-a-nook started out looking…a little dull.
So to brighten up my kitchen and make it pop as its on space in my apartment, I painted it black. Black: new hot color for kitchens?
I redid our uggo old taupe dining room chairs, and found it surprisingly easy. It only took a few materials, and using new padding, a staple gun, and jersey knit fabric, I have totally like-new chairs!
As I dove into garden-planning season, I came across this breathtaking flower: the Black Parrot tulip. Now, I know it’s too late to plant tulips, but that doesn’t stop me from fantasizing about these.
Happily, the Black Parrot led me down a rabbit hole of other dark plants — the kind of vegetation that might convince even the palest of goths to slather on sunscreen and get into the garden.
Christmas comes but once a year so I have to share ANOTHER dark Christmas tree from a reader — even though we already showed one gothy purple one! Whatever. I really doubt you guys are going to complain that we have too many AWESOME VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS PHOTOS.
