Benjamin Moore After Midnight

Hello, old friend. It’s been nearly a decade since I began this episodic blog, and so much in the design world has changed. Now we have Pinterest, Insta, and modern farmhouse, a trend that embraces design elements I admire but whose “gather” signs make me deeply uncomfortable.

Come, let’s gather ’round and stare at the gather sign.


But my interest in design has remained constant; so much so that I went and got a B.F.A. in interior design (something I don’t recommend, as it took years off my life), got a job at an award-winning firm, quit that job after having a baby, and am now working on several freelance projects.

Which brings me to the plat du jour, After Midnight. Also probably the name of an edible massage oil, After Midnight, an inky navy, is a solid choice for kitchen cabinetry and accent walls.

Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray

“Stonington Gray smiled rakishly at Olivia, his blue-black hair curling over his chiseled patrician cheekbones, freshly tanned from his voyage to the West Indies.

“You don’t seem to be struggling,” he purred, encircling her tiny waist with one large, thickly muscled arm. “In fact, I think you’re enjoying yourself.”
