The Case for Black
In the debate of black or white interiors, white tends to get most of the praise. White is considered a perfect backdrop for any other color or style. A blank canvas, just awaiting your design genius.
However, I must say that I have been quite drawn to the idea of a blank slate instead these days. Black has been so famously dismissed for so long as a less than sane interior backdrop. Just like black fingernails, it has been banished to dark clubs and the walls of angst heavy teens rooms.
On the contrary, I think that black interiors can look way more sophisticated and smart than white ones. I'm not saying that I'm going to paint everything in my house black. But these gorgeous settings above drive a hard case for black. Don't you think?
