inky love

I am obsessed with dark navy/almost black ink colored!

It all started in this bathroom in a Pottery Barn catalog from either 2006 or 2007:

Then, my obsession grew when I saw this family room in the 2008 Cottage Living Idea Home:

My heart fluttered when I saw these rooms in Domino:

I'm thinking our next Master Bedroom will have to be inky blue/black. How romantic would that be?


  1. in our loft our master was "Almost Black" by Benjamin Moore. I liked it because when the sun hit the walls there was a red/purple tint to the paint. It made it easier to sleep because it absorbed the light at night so even in the middle of the city our room was dark.

    The dude who moved in after us painted the room beige. sigh

    I say go for it!

  2. the idea house is on my street (and on the market) and we went to their open house this past weekend. that room is seriously a gorgeous gorgeous color. when my husband walked into it, he even said that it would be really cool to paint a room that color. and I have to agree!

  3. I'm doing this look right now! I'm painting our walls hale navy by benjamin moore- we already have a black bed and i'm going to do one black dresser and one white dresser! i wonder if this will be the next big fad?

  4. I'm totally with you! I love that dark navy/inky look... just trying to convince my husband to do one wall!

  5. Oh my gosh, I am in love! Seriously, it is so beautiful. I especially love that bathroom!

    If only I didn't live in a cookie-cutter apartment and could do FUN STUFF like that....


  6. That bathroom makes my heart flutter! I, too, have been digging that color and as soon as we are no longer renters, it is going up! I want it for the kitchen, though, as I think it'd look fab with stainless steel appliances.

  7. I just painted my guestroom this color last month and I seriously go in there at least once a day and just stare at the walls....I LOVE it!

  8. I love those pictures and the colors but hated living with them "in real life." I originally painted our master bath a dark blue color but ended up repainting quickly because the room was just too dark. We have 11 ft. ceilings so all that darkness felt cavernous. I get up and ready in the early, early AM and it was just impossible to get the the room bright enough to do my makeup. So sad... In an ideal world they would have worked!

  9. So funny b/c that's one of my faves too! I STILL have that PB picture saved from years ago. Love it!
