Chalkboard-painted walls provide a perfect way to leave notes for guests.

Don’t be scared. The secret to success is using a black with a tinge of blue, so the darkness has depth. An expanse of it is easier to pull off on built-ins or behind open shelves, where you can layer white objects and plants to break up the color. This is Black Blue by Farrow & Ball, or try Dark Night by Sherwin-Williams.
Leanne loves to incorporate natural elements into all of her designs, so the stone wall was a no-brainer. To achieve the light stone look that she desired without blowing the budget, Leanne and Steve decided to grout wash the stone wall. "I feel I might have invented a new technique," Leanne said. "For budget, we couldn't get a beautiful white stone, but we could smear some grout over it."

The designers are authors of "Prints Charming: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns."
