  • Sherwin Williams - Shamrock -  "In one of my design projects I used this paint color in a master bedroom with an Aspen tree mural. It truly felt like an escape, the color is calming, rich and welcoming."

Deep coloring does not always have to be black or navy. This intense green is saturated with gorgeous pigmentation and will deliver spectacular ambiance in a room.

  • Benjamin Moore - Cheating Heart -  "Whenever I use this paint color, my clients cannot get enough of it! Typically, they absolutely love the look and richness of its deep coloring and will use it in a few areas in their home."

Think of creative and unique ways to incorporate rich color into your home. Paint does not always have to be applied to walls, interior doors, ceilings and cabinetry are all splendid ways to add big personality with designer flair.

  • Sherwin Williams - Roycroft Pewter  We all agree as a design team that this stunning paint color has incredible depth to it. With intense pigmentation and just a hint of blue, it is extremely versatile! This paint color also mimics a very popular wood finish from Redford House Furniture, a high-quality and unique furniture company that we proudly carry. We adore incorporating stunning dark-painted wood furniture pieces into design plans for our clients.

Painted architectural elements within your home will create a huge visual interest and design statement. Darker colors on your walls produce a fabulous backdrop that will allow you to play up your upholstery and other accents in the space.

We also all absolutely admire Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams! When renovations recently took place at historic Gardner VillageCF Home received a fresh new look to the exterior of their storefront. This appealing color was used on the beams outlining this charming store. Iron Ore gives a sharp and handsome contrast against the bright white wood and textured stone exterior.

Another captivating dark paint color is Greenblack by Sherwin Williams. This deep and dramatic color was used by Randi, our store manager and buyer, in her own home! A bold stripe of Greenblack was painted in a cozy corner that is an eye-catching feature within this room. Painting a pattern on an accent wall like this classic stripe will add an interesting visual element to your space.
