Looks great! And I just saw those towels at anthro and had to talk myself out of them because I really honestly don't need them but I really honestly wanted them. Gorge.

i love dark walls in small places! at first i thought it was teal and nearly passed out but i'm sure the gray would have the same affect on me! love it!

Love love love the sneak preview! You know what they say... once you go black... yeah that.

I would honestly paint every room in my home a dark colour if I thought my other half would let me. (He won't.) The couple rooms that have gotten the treatment, however, I have LOVED.

Can't wait to see how this progresses! xxx
