Edgy Farmhouse Look
Farrow & Ball’s Black Blue paint instantly updates this farmhouse reading nook, adding modern character to the existing woodwork. “We like these dark colors with a subtle sheen on woodwork because it brings out the depth of a paneled wall,” says designer Rafe Churchill of Hendricks Churchill LLC. “It’s especially nice on hand-planed boarding or beadboard paneling.”
Luxury + Drama
Black lower walls and a black ceiling accentuate the gorgeous floral wallpaper in this small powder room. “The black really adds drama and surprise to an otherwise dull space,” says interior designer Corine Maggio. She says the wallpaper brings soft elegance to the look, while gold finishes add a touch of luxury.
