"Interior designer Windsor Smith is a genius," says Erin Gates, a Boston interior designer and author of the popular Elements of Style blog. "It’s hard to pick one room of hers, but this entryway in her own home combines so many elements I love — a classic stone floor, a vintage Moroccan lantern, a great upholstered piece and the view of a black-walled room in the distance. Black is my new paint colour obsession!"
