The June 2008 issue of HOME magazine features a house tour of interior designer Jeff Andrews. Andrews' home is a 1924 Spanish-style house that is about 1400 sq. foot. He used a lot of rich dark brown tones throughout the space. He says "I've found that a really dark color in a low-sheen finish has no boundaries to it; it's less space-defining, which makes a room appear larger..."
In the bedroom, he kept the window trim light and had the curtains just a few shades darker than the wall color. (We love the bedding!).
In the bathroom, "to make it less constricted, Andrews' replaced built-ins with a freestanding sink and cabinets. Check out the entire story at the PointClick Home website, and also check out the slide show to see more pics of Andrews' place. The June 2008 issue of Home Magazine is on newstands now.
