Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan are beautiful and I personally, love the color of Graphite.
It is a rich color -close to being a slate, or think …dark pencil lead. And depending on the orientation of the surface painted- it can appear darker or lighter. It does have depth and interest- and clearly plays wonderfully with other pieces painted in a true black. When decorating a room- try to avoid the whole “Matchy-matchy” approach. Layer texture, patterns and hues of color – including various shades of black.
