I keep being asked what shade of paint I used on the wall of our bedroom in France. I used Down Pipe by Farrow & Ball which is a deep dark grey. I initially used the estate emulsion which has a lovely chalky finish but it shows marks a lot more. So over the past few years, I’ve freshened up our walls with the modern emulsion which has a low sheen and most importantly is waterproof.
Beautiful, soft, dark linen like this anthracite duvet cover looks amazing against a dark background and I usually mix them with blue grey pillow cases and for an autumnal look, I use this warm hue.
In winter time, I found dark bedrooms quite soothing, like a shelter from the bad weather and cold. Stuck in bed with a pile of my fav decoration magazines, my laptop and a teapot filled with green tea, life is good.1. | 2. | 3. | 4.
