the little black room

  clients home - Knight by Jeff Lewis from Dunn Edwards
 
  
                                                     Farrow and Ball Railings 31 & Off Black 57
 
It's wishful thinking but just as every woman should have her go-to "little black dress" hanging in her closet, we  think every home should have a "little black room".
 
Disregard the old myth that dark paint colors are a no-no and make a room look smaller. Dark colors, like this black den (above) that was just painted for one of our clients, are very striking and add elegance and warmth to a home. This black room complements the light and airy white main hue throughout the rest of home and the calming dusty blue accent walls in the adjacent dining room and kitchen.
 
Some of Sérendipité’s favorite black paint colors are Knight by Jeff Lewis and Pitch Black 256 by Farrow & Ball.  If you are looking for a hue a little more subdued than a true black, Railings 31 by Farrow & Ball is just as dramatic with a hint of blue and Off Black 57 by Farrow & Ball has more gray to its coloring.
 
Happy Desiging!
