Scot Meacham Wood is not only a dear friend of mine, he’s the king of plaid! He shares his latest projects and finds on his popular blog, Tartan Scot. Today, I’m fortunate to have him here to share some of the best advice he’s ever received… xo, Tobi
This best piece of advice I’ve ever received came from Roger Banks-Pye, who said…
“Always make a dark room darker. You can paint a dark room white, but it will still be dark…give it atmosphere with deep intense colour that works well in artificial light.”
I found this quote in an old Roger Banks-Pye book – and I’ve always loved it. So many of our homes here in San Francisco have these tiny, dark little spaces. It’s true — it’s always better to embrace the darkness and make something spectacular. The rooms shown here are just a few of the ways I’ve used this philosophy in my own design.

When in doubt, go dark!
