W: This room, with its delicious chocolate walls, has more of a modern appeal.
PH: The wall color is Chocolate Candy by Benjamin Moore. The name alone makes it yummy. I find sometimes that a dark room in a beach house is a great place to go when you have a sunburn or want to take a nap. And it actually makes the view pop more than a lighter room. I was obviously going for a graphic punch in this room, with the main story here being contrast: white bed, white curtains against the dark walls. I wanted it all crisp and clean. Also a painted wood bed like this is low-maintenance in a beach house because there is no fabric involved.
