"Deep, moody black continues to be a huge trend for this fall,” says Christine. “Detailed moulding in combination with dark walls is a beautiful way to add warmth and drama to a space.” Add this bold hue to your home in solid palettes, or in smaller doses with graphic printed textiles and wallpaper. MK016 painting, Structube, $389.
If painting your walls black is a bit too risky, consider a rich steely grey in its place. “I love using grey to create a completely monotone backdrop on which to layer in accents of gold and black,” says Christine. “It’s also amazingly fresh when used in place of white to create a modern farmhouse style kitchen – a rich grey feels graphic and modern, but in a very elegant way.” Denali wallpaper, Flat Vernacular, $200 per roll.
“For the past few years, we’ve been seeing lots of navy and darker shades of blue, but for fall 2015, it’s all about the bold, saturated royal blues,” says Christine. “Used as an accent colour with pillows, accessories, wallpaper and artwork, this colour adds a great graphic punch to any space.” Glazed glass lamp base, Pottery Barn, $476.
