Back in Black

It's amazing how often we'll choose black for our clothing, but we shy away from it for a color in our homes. It is a bold choice, and those who study color psychology says that it makes people think of elegance, mystery, formality and power.

Using all black in a room is definitely a brave choice, and it calls for lots of light and counterbalancing tones, like the white in the photographs above.

But using black doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing commitment. In the room above, black is sandwiched between a bright white ceiling and a gorgeous grey and white rug, giving it just the brightness it needs.

If that still makes you too nervous, try just a touch of black, like the tiles in the gorgeous bathroom above.

What do you think of black? Would you use it in your home? It's definitely the right color for tomorrow's holiday.

Happy Halloween!
