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.

Wake up traditional style with cosmic couture.
This conversation starting coffee table in the family room was designed by Amy Morris.
Interior Design Idea No. 3

Here, Jonathan Savage’s sophisticated dining room table is topped with a plethora of my personal favorite color and a fun monogram.

Showcase stems + Place florals at eye level!
A trio of organic lovely casually welcomes visitors to the foyer and was designed by Kate Ladd.

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

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?)
