Want a look that screams style? Paint your wall or walls black.
Paint suppliers are reporting a surge in black satin paint—reasons vary from economic to the aesthetic. People have become comfortable with browns and it is a short jump to black. Here are some black basics if you decide to take the plunge.

Go for it! You will love the high style it injects into your decorating.
