Anyone like magenta? My husband thought I was crazy when I said I wanted to do one wall in our very small bedroom in this color. Truly I don't think he even knew the color. Well, I did the one wall, which already contains a large white area of closet that takes up most of the wall, so the magenta is not overwhelming. The other walls are done in a barely noticeable lavender. Behind my antique white headboard, I had my husband frame an area 6" from crown m., 6" up from the baseboard and as wide as our bed. I painted the interior of this black and hung a gallery of beautiful black background floral photographs by Magda Indigo. ( If you love flowers, go to Magda's website and see her spectacular talent). My cream carpet and magenta, pale greens, corals and shades of gray on a white background comforter are the icing on the cake. I love this room. Listen to that little voice telling you to go bold. FYI, I did this room 3 times in 1 year until I couldn't stand looking at the "nice" neutral paints any longer.
