Connie Braemer's Favourite Palette

Dramatic black walls with a white ceiling.

Toronto designer Connie Braemer decided this staircase had enough natural light for one of her favourite hues, Farrow & Ball's Pitch Black (256). Braemer painted the ceiling in Benjamin Moore's Oxford White (CC-30) to brighten the space and draw the eye upward.
