HOME SWEET HOME
The colour black doesn’t have to be depressing. Be daring and upgrade your space into a modern, elegant and trendy haven by incorporating black-painted walls and ceilings into your home. By Fundiswa Nkwanyana
Give your home an artistic edge by creatively using black paint
Black is tricky to use on the walls. But, when done correctly, this excellent background colour can make artwork and furniture stand out. Neutral and classic, it will give your home an artistic edge. It is ideal for statement and accent walls as well as ceilings.
Indoor plants, paintings, ornaments, light fixtures and statement furniture work well on, against or near a black wall. Jane chair velvet peacock,R3 699, @homeWooden base glass hurricane candle holder,R350,Woolworths For a more refined look, paint the trimmings of the wall in the same colour.
