Almost immediately after we moved into our new house I painted our bedroom black. It was already a dark blue, so getting it to white would have taken several coats of expensive paint (no thanks!). But it didn’t matter because I knew I wanted to paint it black anyway. Ever since I painted a wall black in our old apartment black 6 years ago, I knew I wanted more black, and this time in a different room.
I like to keep the bedroom really simple. Easy on the eyes. I never want to walk in my bedroom and feel overwhelmed or cluttered.
Also, my husband’s style is very minimal. I mean, if he didn’t live with me he would have literally zero decor and no furniture that wasn’t 100% functional and comfortable. So I try to make an extra effort to keep the bedroom as minimal as possible.
I added this mango wood slice on top of the dresser because it needed something, and I like how the white wood pops off the black wall.
For now, I don’t want to add anything else to the wall, even though it’s large. I’m really loving the simplicity of it. Plus, I hung my Rwandan baskets above our bed (photos coming soon!) and I feel like one busy wall is enough for one room.
What’s your bedroom style?
Do you have a spot in your home that you want to keep super simple?
