I wanted to paint my bedroom dark colours – everyone told me not to but I didn't listen & now even the ceiling's black | The Sun

A WOMAN has shared how she decided to paint her bedroom in very dark colours – despite others' strong warning not to. 

Facebook account Life Is What You Make It came up with a plan to decorate part of her house in shades such as black, but was told it would look too “moody” and “dark”. 

However, Life Is What You Make It didn’t listen to the doubters about the colour decor she wanted, and instead went full steam ahead with the transformation. 

And the social media user filmed every step of the process along the way, as she recorded herself putting the first bits of paint on, before revealing the work in progress look. 

In the clip posted to Facebook, she showed how she’d opted for dark green panelling on the bottom half of the wall.

She completed the dark aesthetic with similarly dark wallpaper on the top half.

And Life Is What You Make It showed her 111k followers how she’d gone one step further – and painted the ceiling black. 

Poking fun at the critics of her interior design choices as she applied the paint to the ceiling, the Facebook fan referred to their comments in the title to the video.

She wrote: “They said not to paint the room dark… especially not the ceiling.”

She later added in the caption: “‘Don’t do it!’ they said when I wanted to go for a moody guest bedroom.

“I know the moody vibe isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

“‘It will be too dark’ BUT I knew if I didn’t do it, I’d regret it.”

Life Is What You Make It then said she’s never looked back on her decision and she’s so happy with her choices.

She revealed: “There is still lots to do in here, but I am LOVING it so far.”

The Facebooker also shared details of where she got her paint and wallpaper, as she encouraged others to follow their gut.  

“The Majoram wallpaper by Milton & King and the Shade-Grown by Sherwin-Williams goes sooooo well together.

“Crown moulding is coming next, then the finishing touches.” 

And her followers were quick to comment on the bedroom’s transformation – and it’s safe to say it split them down the middle.

Some likened it to a “hotel ambience” and said they’d gone for exactly the same look in their home. 

One person wrote: “Best decision I ever made in my home was painting walls black. It looks truly gorgeous.

“If you want to paint your walls dark… do it. Do it!”

However, others were less convinced of the trend and said that while they liked the walls, the ceiling was a step too far and made the room look “dismal even in the daylight.”
