What color did you paint the ballisters? - I love how they don't look TOO black - they are the perfect shade between brown and black... What color did you use? THANKS!

Dark wood in my opinion whether you just have doors, a wall, banister, floors etc. always gives a room that classic look. Add an Oriental rug in the room and you have classic simplicity at it's best.
