I'm hoping that I'll be able to stay at the next place I move to for more than a year (as long as it doesn't get infested with alien cockroaches or anything), so I'm thinking of ways to make it feel more like home. One obvious way to do that is to paint! I'm thinking mostly neutrals like white and gray (I am so sick of beige walls!) and, yes, black. The thing about black paint is, it's probably kind of hard to paint back over, so I'll definitely think twice before going so dark, but I LOVE the way it looks in all of these rooms, so that second think may not last too long.
