I finally started on my room.  I've always wanted to paint my walls a high gloss black and my husband actually let me!!

Our room is only in the beginning stages but I am keeping up with the project on my blog for those who may be interested or inspired.

http://norrishomeprojects.blogspot.com/2008/04/master-bedroom.html

so first of all I have to show off this awesome antique store find



and then this is a lamp that started off brass without a shade



and then here is my glorious swanky bedroom!!



I wanted to have yellow accents but since I started I've been seeing a lot of that in Elle Decor and in clothing.  So I don't want to do that now.  I'll probably go with just the black, white and mirrored accents.  But like I said, I'm totally not done yet, but couldn't wait to share.

I'm going to make padded cornices that go to the ceiling but I'm can't find fabric I like yet.....

I LOVE THIS!  So gorgeous and lush! Cheesy  I wish my room looked this cool!  Have you thought about adding Toile (black & white of course!) pillows or other accessories?

WOW! I JUST talked to my painter this afternoon about painting my bathroom black. NOW...I think I'm going to paint my bedroom black!

Your bedroom is absolutely stunning!!!!

How fantastic! I think I'd be too chicken for such a bold move, but your bedroom looks so chic. I think i'm in love. And personally, I don't think it needs the cornices. The curtains look pretty darn cool by themselves.

WOW, wow wow wow, that is all I can say, that room is awesome. I have a black and white themed room, but have been scarred to paint the walls black, but this looks so good, I think I may just have to do it.

Thankyou!  Well, as for the cornices, I was thinking instead of fabric since I can't find anything good, that I might do embossed faux leather like maybe black ostrich and possibly tufted with like 3 oversized buttons or something.  I don't know yet.


Thanks for all the great comments.  If you have a black and white room, I would love to see them!!
