Wednesday Inspiration {Benjamin Moore, "Onyx"}

I'm so excited about a change that I'm making on Wednesdays...starting TODAY!
Wordless Wednesday Inspiration will be Wednesday Inspiration from now on.  I'll still continue to share my favorite paint colors and wall coverings BUT I'll be sharing why!

I hope this new direction is a helpful one for you.

(It's A LOT like my other favorite shade of black, Farrow & Ball's OFF BLACK).
