PA I N T I T B L AC K HOW TO USE THE DARKEST SHADE IN A WAY THAT’S CHIC AND EYE-CATCHING Shading your walls in black may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re considering paint colors. But black has a daring all its own that can bring character and chicness to your space. “The result is both unexpected and incredibly sophisticated,” says Andrea Magno, a Benjamin Moore color and design expert. Black has an interesting effect on the walls of a room because the corners and shadows are obscured more than if a midtone or pastel color is used,” Magno says. “This can be used as a visual trick to give the space a less-defined appearance and can make a room feel a bit more expansive.”
Black walls can also bring coziness. “Dark walls coupled with dramatic lighting create an instant air of luxury and sumptuousness,” says Karen Howes, CEO and founder of Londonbased interior-design firm Taylor Howes. CHOOSING THE RIGHT ROOM
"It’s important to consider the function of the room and also the time of day that you spend the most time there,” Howes says. “Great candidates for black walls include rooms used primarily as evening spaces or those that aren’t reliant on task lighting, such as home cinemas and dining rooms," she says. In a media room, black walls help absorb the light and won’t distract from the room’s main function, Howes says. "We also find using darker tones in dining rooms helps create a luxurious feel in the evening when our clients are entertaining,” she says. “Often the rooms that are most successful have a balance between light and dark—where black walls are paired with a light floor color or furniture done in neutrals and whites,” Magno adds.

ACCENT VERSUS ALL FOUR WALLS
“Black can be a superb choice, as it allows you to play with contrasts,” says Nicolas Adnet of Studio MHNA, an architecture and design firm in Paris. "For example, if the rest of the room is done in pale or pastel palettes, painting a wall black can add drama and create atmosphere." A single black wall can also give character and structure to a space and be used to highlight furniture or a collection of art, Adnet notes. If used as an accent, Magno says, it’s important that it creates a focal point and architecturally makes sense in the room. For instance, accent walls work well when a room has a wall with a fireplace or millwork, or when there is an alcove or other feature worthy of attention, she says. ADDING DIMENSION
Black walls can handle patterned accessories or upholstery. “The black will tend to recede, causing the pattern to advance or be more eyecatching," Magno says. Repeating black in patterns also helps tie the look of the room together. "For instance, many materials used for countertops–whether marble, granite, or quartz–have black running through
them and can instantly create a visual connection between the walls and other features in the room," Magno says. PERFECT FINISH
The finish you choose for the paint can have different effects on the space. A matte black has a soft quality, while a high gloss will add reflection and drama. "Using a semigloss or high-gloss finish works well in dark spaces, as it helps to bounce the light around," Howes says. "We tend to combine different finishes in one space to get a nice balance." USING TRIMS WELL
Often roofs with walls painted black have white or off-white trim for a clean look, Magno notes. “Black looks great when used in a space with neutral or white wainscoting or cabinetry because the contrast is striking and chic," she adds. For a sophisticated look, she recommends painting walls, and trim or millwork in one black hue, and either using the same finish on both surfaces or using a lower sheen on the walls, such as a matte finish and a semigloss or high gloss on the trim.

PERFECTING FRENCH FOOD— HER OWN WAY Chef Jamie Malone makes an upscale egg dish called the Po r c i n i R o y a l e w i t h parmesanand pine nuts.
MIDWESTERNER JAMIE MALONE CREATES HAUTE COOKING WITH PLAYFUL NUANCES Chef Jamie Malone has been busy: Her year-old Minneapolis restaurant, the Grand Cafe, was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s Best New Restaurants of 2018, and her decadently high-end, French-inspired dessert—a doughnut filled with chicken-liver mousse and topped with a burnt-honey and pastryglitter-accented gastrique glaze—was named the magazine’s 2018 Dish of the Year. In October, the chef—who herself is a F&W Best New Chef Alum—and her business partner took the reins of another Minneapolis restaurant, Eastside, and are revamping the menu and cocktail program while remaining open for service. Cooking was the only thing Malone, 36, ever wanted to do. And now, with two of her own restaurants, she’s creating her own unique take on French cuisine in her hometown. 26
REMAKING A CLASSIC
FRENCH, BUT WITH A TWIST
Malone bought the Grand Cafe, a 70-year-old (give or take) Minneapolis restaurant, after the owners reached out for help. “The place had tons of soul,” she says. “It was really cool; it was quaint. I said, ‘Yeah, let’s do this.’ And I just fell in love with it.” She worked as the chef for about a year before officially buying the eatery from the owners. She closed for about three months, had the kitchen completely redone, and mostly DIY-ed the front-of-house renovations herself with friends and family. "I've always kind of had this romantic relationship with French food and I found the perfect spot to cook it in," she says. “It felt perfectly messy."
When Malone was creating the menu for the Grand Cafe, she drew from her training at Le Cordon Bleu, as well as her passions. The menu boasts classics like pate en croute and beef tartare—but then there’s that liver mousse doughnut. "I knew I wanted it to be oldfashioned food: blanquette de veau, cassoulet. But I didn’t want it to feel rustic,” she says. "I put quirky things on the menu to balance it out. It's very strictly French, but with a few Japanese touches to give it a little modern lightness.” Diners often look past chicken on a restaurant menu, but at the Grand Cafe they’d be wise to ignore that inclination. Chicken breast is brined for 24 hours before the skin is peeled back and allowed to dry out for a day. Mousse made from leg meat is then piped between the skin and the breast meat, and the chicken is cooked
at intervals: seven minutes cooking, seven minutes resting, repeat. The herbs used and the side dishes change with the seasons. Malone says this dish surprises and delights diners. Another example of the chef’s modernity in the kitchen: roasted oysters and cream topped with potato chips. She came up with the dish while eating with a friend: "We always cook in his open hearth, just sitting on the floor and throwing stuff in. We had oysters, so we put them on the fire and topped them with cream, and we happened to have an open bag of kettle chips that I crushed up and put on top.” “It’s very Parisian to build yourself on contradictions,” she says.
KEEPING IT FRESH Malone likes to keep her menu curated and consistent throughout the year, which stands in opposition to the ever-changing small-plate trend that’s present in so many hip restaurants. Of course, seasonality will change some of the ingredients in a dish, but the chef insists that a menu that isn’t full of surprises is good for both the customer and the kitchen.
Chef Jamie Malone says it’s Parisian “to build yourself on contradictions.”
