My ultimate favorite black has as much to do with the sheen as it does with the color: Fine Paints of Europe’s HollandLac in black is the ultimate for glossy black doors. I’ve used this on most of my own homes (and a few for clients). It requires an expert application, but the results are sublime; glossy to the point of reflection, this paint finishes like black glass.

The one departure is English’s storybook bedroom, a happy riot of deep blue, forest green, and sunshine yellow that Raven dreamed up with Sams. “When we finished it, one of my friends came in and said, ‘Oh, my gosh, it looks like Goodnight Moon.’ I had never thought about it, but it does.”

My decorating is often inspired by art and this colour reminded me of Yves Klein blue. I love to use it in studies or libraries as blue represents wisdom and knowledge. It’s electric enough that it inspires, but also reminds me of the sea connecting one to nature.
