Dark-Walled Library

Pair glossy black walls with brass accents.

HGTV star and Toronto designer Tommy Smythe chose dramatic black walls for this luxe library in a Victorian house. The paint's glazed finish sets the walls aglow. A brass mirror, chandelier and pillow fabric infuse the dark space with warmth.

See Tommy Smythe's Victorian Makeover photo gallery for more photos of this home, plus watch Suzanne Dimma tour through the kitchen.
