Dark walls layer in drama and warmth.
This cosy dining room inspired Toronto blogger Jen Selk to experiment with dark paint and rustic wood. "A lot of celebrity homes leave something to be desired design-wise — so many pool tables, big screen televisions and hideous leather sofas — but Private Practice's Kate Walsh is one of those celebrities who seems to care about style as much as cost," notes Jen. "I love those coral-like sconces — they're such a great detail. And the details matter."
