I like black.  I think it looks great with every colour out there.  I tend to use black as an accent colour but I’ve come across pics of decorators who have used black as a background colour.  What I mean by that is that they have used black as a wall colour.  Check it out:



The first one is by Ruthie Sommers (I think) and the second one I lifted from Suzie at DecorPad.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  I don’t plan on painting any walls in this house black but I hope that one day I’ll be in a house that’s just begging for black walls and that I’ll be brave enough to say, “Yes!”
