Please pardon me if you find me fixated on dark hued rooms in the next few weeks. My sample pots are on their way and the painter starts in a few weeks. Excited? Maybe. No really am I excited? Maybe. Really? OK I can't wait! I'm turning to the dark side in a very big way. And this lovely home? Look at those black walls. So warm when teamed with the creams and off whites. Lovely textures, splash of colour here or there, cute window treatment ideas (stealing that simple button top roll up blind idea). Interiors by Gretchen Kubiak of BLACK & POOLE.
