The Use of Black in Interiors

Black is the color that can elevate the most a simple decor to a more elegant and austere one.  There is probably no other color as classic as black and it never goes out of style.  The competence of the color black has been forever a favorite of many well renowned designers and it has been a permanent and constant choice in interiors as well as in fashion.  No wonder black is well known as Cristobal Balenciaga's preferred color as it's demonstrated by the exhibition 'Balenciaga, L'Ouvre ou Noir' (All in Black) taking place at Palais Galliera in Paris now.  It's neutrality provides the flexibility of being paired with almost any other hue in the rainbow.  Either employed as a simple accent such as a decorative object or for covering all the walls in a room the effect of black in interiors is strictly elegant and timeless.
