Paint it black?

Bell pendant light by Normann Copenhagen

Let's start the week off with a peek at this beautiful Swedish home currently for sale over at Fantastic Frank.

There is so much to love about this home - the herringbone oak flooring or the wood panelling in the dining room for instance.

I've been thinking of painting the rather tired looking wooden floorboards in my office, and after admiring the beautiful staircase below, I'm tempted to take the plunge and go for a really dark shade of grey, blue or black. We used Railings on our garden wall recently and loved it.

Have you ever used a dark shade like this for the floorboards in your home? If so I'd love to hear your recommendations. Please do feel free to pitch in below with your thoughts or experiences.
