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.
