I am totally enjoying dark inky tones at the moment. This photo from Petrina Tinslay interior portfolio shows how luxurious and inviting it can be. We have painted the walls in store PortersPaints thoroughbred, I'm not running the main lights, all lighting is via the lamps and our chandelier cluster. Not only does it look so calm and luring it tricks you into thinking it's 5 degrees cooler. It really has been a little sanctuary from the explosive heat of late. Abigail Ahern always advocates to go the dark side - she does it so well!
Tomorrow is supposed to be a scorcher so grab a brush and get painting.
Sorry about the lack of images - images wouldn't load....L O V E technology!
