Day 489: Happy Halloween

Spooky, creepy and scary isn't really me, but I do love these dark, dark walls in the home of J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons' 1890 Brooklyn brownstone.

Chalkboard paint in the master bedroom? Hey -- it works!

Erika pointed out that Jenna sprayed the new brass fixtures with salt water to give them a patina to match the reclaimed herringbone floor (swoon!). What a clever idea!

Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone!

Halloween really isn't my thing either. But her home is alarmingly awesome! happy weekend!

Love the gray walls, white trayed ceiling and the hints of black and yellow! Gorgeous! Who would have thought - gray walls?

I love this look! I'm doing something similar with my dining room. The plan is gray walls with black chairs and table. A silver "chopping block turned bar" and traditional accent pieces to keep if from looking too modern (ornate white ceramic candlesticks, traditional glass chandelier, etc). :) Now I just have to find the time to do it!

This makes me really want to paint my bedroom and deep blue color!

I like dark walls too. Great creative director Jenna Lyons.
