A peek into my bedroom: I'm slowly settling into my new apartment, and couldn't be happier with the bones of the space. In general, I tend to stick to whites and neutrals, but decided to go more dramatic and moody this time with a black bedroom - the color is Universal Black 2118-10 by Benjamin Moore. I have partnered with them to inspire a life in color, and their 2015 color trend ideas couldn't be more on point. The berry family has actually influenced my entire bedroom - cozy dark walls, crisp white bedding, a soft sage candle and fresh cut flowers with pops of pinks and purples. Dark walls do take some getting used to, but with the balance of bright natural light, sheer curtains, simple decor and subtle color punches, I'm loving the fresh change.
