Morgan Michener’s Haliburton, Ont., cabin looks plucked from the Swedish countryside.Ebony stain makes the original panelling in Julie Charbonneau’s home feel contemporary.I snapped this at the L.A. shop Nickey Kehoe — love the warm wood and fresh green against the matte black wall.We didn’t plan it from the start, but a strong visual theme emerged in our big fall decorating issue: decorating’s gone to the dark side.Of course, black’s always been integral to the success of a room. We’ve long preached the gospel of including at least three black pieces to add weight to a space.

In fact, I walked my dog past the renovations on Bear Rock Cottage and thought, “Someone’s making fabulous choices!” It’s gorgeous here on the Bay of Fundy and, as a design junkie, it’s exciting to see gorgeous design happening here, too.— PATTI BREAKER, Maces Bay, N.B.There’s lots to like in the August issue! You’ll get a lot of kudos for showing design ideas for smaller spaces — living in a 650-square-foot apartment in Toronto, I really appreciated it. The in-depth photography also brought everything to life. From “Treat it like a Mansion” to “Pile…
