Many a black wall has been faced with the challenge of being fashionable without looking too gothic or depressing, but I’ve found a few sample of great ways to incorporate black into your decorating and design. This fresh and young-spirited room I found via Home Decor Arcade blends all the aspects of a modern clean feel within the darkness of black walls and furnishing. The big windows add a lot of light. When using black paint for walls, gloss or semi-gloss finish is always recommended, so that the deep color will bounce back some light.
(note the cool crystal chandelier close up in this shot – love it!)
