BLACK. A colour that’s sure to be found in any wardrobe has somehow managed to create controversial opinions when it comes to home décor. Why is BLACK so important to our wardrobe? And why do we tend to gravitate towards black when we shop for an outfit? Let’s see… Sophistication. Mystery. Elegance. Goes with pretty much anything… Dirt-proof. OK, maybe not this last one.

But black is still black. From wardrobe to home décor, BLACK behaves the same. It can add Sophistication, Drama and Elegance to any space. It does go well with everything and, in fact, it happens (in certain applications) to be dirt-proof.

So, from wardrobe to home décor, what changed?

We make wardrobe decisions every day. And, as black goes with everything, it’s very often part of one’s outfit choice for the day. Now, how often do we decide to paint our walls black? It’d be fair to say: not too often. Or, for some, never. So our comfort level to make that decision is not the same…

I’m hoping that, through some of the great visuals featured here, that comfort level will change and, when the time comes, you will make that decision with confidence: GO BLACK.
