- Applied mouldings
- Matching wall and trim colour
- Flat paint
Flat paint... I have a new fascination with this. Yesterday I visited the local Benjamin Moore store which had recently undergone a renovation. The store had the upper part of the giant walls painted in a flat navy and the lower part in a stone grey. The effect was stunning. The paint colours had depth and character. Their lack of reflectiveness allowed the walls to recede into the background and the product to be more prominent. I imagine a bedroom enveloped in flat paint in muted tones would feel like a quiet, restful cocoon.

I also love this modern abstract take on a mural. Dina recently installed this gorgeous watercolour grasscloth in her home. Isn't it stunning?
Yet another image which captures some of my favourite looks, notably
- black metal frames: we've seen black metal windows for the last few years and Bailey McCarthy had a fabulous black metal shower. More and more the look is being applied to interior walls as well as exterior doors
- dark painted doors: I love the contrast of white walls and dark doors. We did similar at our cottage and might want to do something like this here at the house as well

While I love a good built-in, free-standing furniture-like cabinetry is a look that is growing on me. I like how this kitchen island is raised off the floor, giving it an airiness and lightness. You can also bring a similar feeling into the bathroom, with raised vanities with decorative feet
As you can see, I'm not lacking for inspiration. Now to pull this all together to create a cohesive design plan for our house!
