Sheila Sabine - Design Tip - Bold black interior doors

Out with the old, In with the bold.


For the past few years, designers have been upping the trim and molding game with coats of bold black paint. Now black exterior and interior doors are having a moment. The deep saturation of the color and enhances portals that range from basic builder grade to architectural delights so this is a trend being fully embraced. Go for gloss as opposed to flat - much more vibrant.

In contemporary design,turquoise color accents accents are very popular  to add a bit of zing.
