The three-bedroom， 120-square-metre art deco building has been fully redecorated by Julie， who says although her decor style is ever-evolving， her penchant for black has never wavered. For evidence， look no further than her lounge feature wall painted in Resene ‘Nero’， a deep colour with inky blue undertones. “I’m super confident about dark colours， black in particular，” she says. “It’s my favourite； I think it’s beautiful but it needs to be used wisely. If you get it wrong， you lose its beauty.”
