Interior Design Idea No. 1

That rebellious black exterior! Would you, could you also choose an ebony exterior?

Departing from the trend in recent years to paint houses all-white, the Show House was painted completely black – setting a strikingly dramatic tone.

Add handsome luxe sophistication to a kitchen by restraining the color palette.

The show house’s kitchen and scullery by Randi Stovesand with Tanley Blake Interiors is a study in textures and timelessness.

Interior Design Idea No. 7

Paint bead board a color other than white.

Bob Brown’s seriously stunning screen porch is a coup for classy cocooning (do we ever see black bead board ceilings or art hung from firewood?)

        I’ve never seen black bead board but I have seen it painted a super dark green in old Victorian houses. It appeared nearly black but upon closer inspection it was green. Apparently what goes around, comes around…but with a wee bit of a twist. 😉

          So true! I think of old English country houses with that deep dark blackish green – so regal and handsome. 🙂
