Tommy’s House

  1. modern jane says:

    I did a post on him once. I love how all his things still look great in his new white and bright space! The black was pretty amazing though!

  2. LifestyleBohemia says:

    Really gorgeous! I only recently became brave enough to use darker colors in my home (my living room is now dark blue). Perhaps some day I will be bold enough to try black as well!

  3. Nichole @ Parlour says:

    Oooo, good find. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

  4. Geezees Custom Canvas Art says:

    I think black walls are the new white.

  5. Rene says:

    Wow! I agree that the wood tones and the black look striking together. And that herringbone pattern would jazz up just about anything.

  8. Stephanie Sabbe says:

  9. besterk says:

    The black can be so nice, I love the deep grays on the wall.

    I have a design crush on Tommy and Sarah. Can't miss one of their shows. My husband doesn't even consider deleting any of them on the DVR without asking ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. maureen @ The Inglenook Decor says:

    the black walls are to die for, and the gold accents against it are gorgeous!I've always wanted to do black walls, maybe in a guest bathroom or something, someday ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. autumn says:

    i love tommy!
    funny and wildly talented to boot. i love the super masculine vibe of his home he remodeled. scrump—-tious!!

  13. Wanderings of a Wannabe says:

    So glad you didn't paint it! That room is amazing- I love that quilt! AND…Can not believe your headboard!! It turned out so beautiful…sounds like LOTS of work! Not sure my husband would have done it!

  14. Visual Vamp says:

    It just go to show you how fickle we are ha ha.
    If you truly love something, then it doesn't matter what's in or out.
    But that's not the problem – the problem is we want it all! And we can have it all when it comes to paint!
    I have been toying with the idea of painting my bedroom black. Truly.
    Don't know how it would play with the light in New Orleans. Some paint colors look better in different regions.
    Great post!

  17. Splendid Sass says:

    I love black and believe that every room must have some black. Love these images.

  18. Debbie@Vintage Scout Interiors says:

    Thank you for sharing this! I think I had seen the kitchen, but the bedroom- swoon! Reminds me a little bit of the show house bedroom we just rapped up a few months ago.

  19. The mad woman behind the blog says:

    I absolutely love how masculine the space is without alienating the ladies! Perfection

  20. LittleBlackHome says:

    I love black walls!! I wouldn't put them just anywhere in my house, but it's definitely nice in a bedroom. Very sultry. Also love the black shades on the lamps- dark shades give such a sexy glow at night. I love all the wood, too. AND all that gorgeous brass!I'm also a big fan of layered bedside tables. And the kitchen? BEEE-UTIFUL! Black, white, and wood is always sooo sexy, sophisticated, and timeless.

  22. Hello Lover... says:

    I also love his facebook page – when I saw that kitchen with the black floors – I fell in love!

  23. Emily @ Timeless Paper says:

    Love Tommy & his home! You mentioned in your previous bathroom update post that you were considering imperial trellis fabric for your shower curtain but it wasn't in the budget. I'm in the process this week of creating my own trellis fabric curtains DIY style for one of my guest rooms. I created a stencil and painted it! I've been blogging about it this week as I progress. Stop by and check it out if you're interested. I even posted the stencil for sale in my shop in case you didn't want to create your own. I love cutting paper and I love your blog! Thanks for stopping by if you do!

  24. AB HOME Interiors says:

    What a gorgeous home!! It really does ooze his style I must say!

  25. Maggie Rose says:

    Wow, stunning! Now I'm wishing I had a space to paint black!

  26. Style Chronicle says:

    Gorg! Don't be over black. It is too chic.

  27. my favorite and my best says:

    he worked that kitchen ov-uh!!!

  28. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    So, THAT'S where that kitchen came from! First time I saw them, I thought I'd died and gone to cucina heaven!

  29. Pemberley says:

    LOVE all the black and white! Bookmarking now for a reference.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
